Beijing International Pop Music Festival kicked off on April 12.
From May 6 to 8, three shows will be staged in the capital. These shows will feature Haya, a Beijing-based rock band founded in 2006 by a group of Mongolian ethnic musicians; singer-songwriter Chen Hongyu; and Beijing-based band Sir Deer, which was founded in 2006 and is composed of six members. They will perform at the Beijing Exhibition Hall. From April 12 to 21, 12 new bands will perform at Omni Space, a popular live house venue in Beijing.
Launched in 2015, the Beijing International Pop Music Festival has held nearly 100 live concerts. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival has been highlighting local musicians over the last few years.
