The Summer Solstice Festival, which is organized by the French Consulate General in Guangzhou and the Daliang Community of Shunde City, will be held in Daliang Shunfeng Shan Mountain Park on June 20 and 21.

This will be the fourth time the event, known as Croisements, is being held in Daliang. The festival celebrates French music, art and culture. French and Chinese musicians will play together and help create an outdoor carnival atmosphere during the Summer Solstice, which coincides this year with the Chinese Duanwu (dragon boat) holiday.

The festival will welcome the French band, Bukatribe, which blends the styles of B-Box, onomatopoeia, soul music, reggae, rap and chanson. The French rock band, Theodore, Paul and Gabriel, will offer modern style as well as classic style, integrating all music elements into one, just like the Beatles. Chinese bands include Varihnaz from the Zhuang minority from the junction of Guangxi and Guizhou, Golden Cage from Guangzhou, rap singer J. Slowly and his band, Soul of Djembe (an African hand percussion drum).

The festival is a visual fashion and cultural event. To reflect the Chinese festival of Duanwu, French artist François Méchain has designed an art installation, Dragon Football Field, and the artwork will remain in the park for three months after the festival. Prints DIY workshop and a lecture and exhibition on French tourism resources, as well as a dragon dance, are among the activities scheduled. On both nights, the Sino-France Film Panorama will screen movies in the Feng-huang Lawn Film Area. Admission is free (although there will be a charge for snacks).

Rain-protected facilities and heat stroke prevention will be available, due in part to the frequently hot and rainy weather in June.
