The beautiful Sai Yuen Farm on Cheung Chau will once again play host to Hong Kong’s very own two-day arts and music festival, Shi Fu Miz. HKFP is a media sponsor.

Shi Fu Miz 2019 is an eco-friendly gathering, showcasing underground electronic music, yoga, drumming, silent disco, art installations and workshops.

Created by FuFu and the La Mamie music collective, the first of two editions this year takes place on Saturday, May 4 through to Sunday, May 5.

Highlights include:

Shuya Okino: Since brothers Shuya and Yoshi Okino formed Kyoto Jazz Massive (rated by DJ Gilles Peterson) as a DJ unit in the early 90’s, they have pioneered the way for Japanese Club Jazz/Crossover music at home and abroad. Shuya is also behind Japan’s The Room Club in Shibuya – one of the most vital venues in the genre.

Palms Trax: A producer and Dj based in Berlin, Jay Donaldson is one of the trendiest artists in the house music scene today.
