With the idea of “Art Comes from Life and Can Also Guide It; Art Inherits Culture and Can Also Create It”, the event also invited professors and influencers to deliver lectures of various themes. At the same time, high-level talents were invited to cycle around Sanlongwan Greenway, and well-known folk musicians were invited to perform on the stage of “Foshan Talent Night”.

As a crucial brand of Foshan Nighttime Economy, Sanlongwan Cruise started the first music festival with the first trio concert on the deck in Foshan this year. In the future, Sanlongwan Cruise will present more musical events, combining cruise tour and art. 

Vice Chairman of the Foshan CPPCC Zhang Bing said Sanlongwan Sci&tech City has been committed to building a more livable, open and active high-end art community. Aiming at building an international art platform of the Greater Bay Area, the event will enable Sanlongwan to gain more momentum.
