Then, according to Liao Yu, the Party Secretary and General Manager of Migu Music, the panda base and Migu will work together to create Panda IP over a 10-year period, with the ultimate goal of creating a panda IP brand and image with Chinese elements and world-class influence, and the music festival is just the preface of the plan.
Why is it called panda music festival? Because they do have pandas - you can watch pandas after listening to music, experiencing panda culture in all aspects.
At the launch event, Liao Yu, the Party Secretary and General Manager of Migu Music, introduced the background of the 2018 Chengdu International Panda Music Festival and the innovative interactive activities of the music festival, which were divided into two sections. The online section mainly focuses on the public benefit popularization of environmental protection with pandas as the carrier and panda interaction zone; as for the offline section, focusing on panda street, panda-themed children's stage plays, panda sports meets, a panda museum, panda art exhibition (dimensional), panda-themed cultural and creative fair, panda-themed cuisine and other IP, a comprehensive experience area will be built inside the music festival to fully let visitors immerse themselves in the panda culture. Among them, the Panda Tea House, a pure original children's music drama produced by both parties, is the first panda-themed freehand experiential children's stage play in Sichuan province. Taking the national treasure giant panda as the theme, integrating the treasures of Ba-Shu culture such as face-changing, hand shadow puppetry, and other multi-element artistic expression forms, combining the expression form of the contemporary popular song and dance dramas - immersive stage, with a humorous artistic attitude, the scene in the old Chengdu city teahouse and a touching story which takes place between the giant pandas and their companion animals is presented to the audience.
