JUE | Music + Art 2012: March 9 – 25, 2012
JUE | Music + Art is an annual open-source arts and music festival in both Shanghai and Beijing, presented by Split Works. Now in its fourth year, JUE is all about celebrating the best of the local creative communities in these two great cities, and inviting artists from around the world to showcase their talent in China.
JUE is a collaborative, open-source affair. Each individual event organizer is entitled to set their own entrance fee and to keep 100% of the proceeds. Split Works doesn’t take a cut, but we will work extremely hard to buzz your event through our media partners, online marketing, and street teams. In exchange, we ask that all official JUE event partners work to promote the festival according to our Partner Requirements.
JUE is growing tremendously year-on-year. The 2011 festival drew over 32,000 attendees to 91 events! But we always strive to maintain a strong sense of community, an intimate vibe, and a top-tier selectioof artists and events.
We welcome passionate souls and organizations of all stripes to get involved in making JUE 2012 the biggest and best JUE yet! Get in touch and let us know what you’ve got percolating for JUE 2012.
