Yokohama (Japan): Yokohama Arts Festival Executive Committee recently announced that “Yokohama Music Festival 2016” will be held over 67 days from September 22 to November 27, 2016.
The festival will feature a wide variety of genres including classical, jazz, pop and traditional Japanese music.
The Yokohama Music Festival 2016 will be the largest music festival to ever be held in Japan.
Last time, during “Yokohama Music Festival 2013,” more than 3.8 million people came together to put the entire city of Yokohama in a festive mood.
Yokohama City has been hosting art-oriented festivals every year, with an aim of increasing broader citizen participation, educating the next generation, drawing domestic and international attention to the world-level cultural and artistic charm of the city, creating prosperity for the city, and revitalizing its economy.
This year, the theme of the show is “Super Universal,” and more than 300 programs will be held around Yokohama that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age, disability – or taste in music. (ANI)
