Island Bar 岛屿酒吧：我有故事，你有酒吗？
About the Event 关于活动
Island Bar is a talk bar that brings together domestic artists from all over Asia. The audience will enter one after another "islands" and meet the "island owners" gathered here, exchange a conversation for a cup of special tunes, attack the indifferent interpersonal relationship as a metaphor of regional politics, and rebuild the intimate communication between people . When we were slightly drunk, we talked to each other and found the "true feelings" hidden in our hearts. Step by step, the barriers between people, between people and regions, and between different cultures are opened.

In this dialogue, the artists will share with the audience the interesting things they have encountered since the "opening of the bar".
