The sixth iteration of Hong Kong’s electronic music boutique festival has been given the green light and will take place later this year on October 30 – November 1 at Cheung Chau Island.
With several countries beginning to gradually loosen its strict lockdown regulations, we can slowly expect to see the return of music events as things get back to normal. One event that is already moving forward is Hong Kong’s Shi Fu Miz Festival. The electronic music boutique festival, now on its sixth iteration, will be returning to the island of Cheung Chau on October 30 – November 1.
This year’s edition will feature three stages on the island’s Sai Yuen Farm, and will follow a ‘pillars program’ that focuses on “lifestyle, ecology, sustainability, well being, family and scenography.”
The festival features an eclectic lineup of house and techno artists and a luxury camping area that offers teepee, safari and geodesic tents. The festival will also feature well-being activities, in partnership with wellness studio Ikigai, and creative workshops should attendees feel the need to take a break and relax from dancing. This includes their ongoing focus on sustainability including eco-talks and zero-waste beach cleanups.
Other initiatives will be also be introduced this year. Plastic bags in bins will be replaced by biodegradable bags, and stages will be built using recycled materials. replacing the plastic bags usually found in rubbish bins with biodegradable bags. Stages will also be built up of recycled and upcycled materials.
Additionally, for every ticket purchased, a tree will be planted towards a reforestation project in the Philippines as part of a partnership with One Tree Planted. Shi Fu Miz have also partnered up with Bye Bye Plastic which aims to rid of single-use plastic within the music industry.
The festival is also family-friendly (free for kids under the age of 12!), and will feature activities throughout the day for everyone to enjoy.
