“Sunday Summer Jam” at Stanley Plaza

In June last year, The Link organised the first “Sunday Summer Jam” at Stanley Plaza, which attracted a wave of avid music fans and visitors. This year, we proudly present another round of “Sunday Summer Jam”, starting on 2 June and continuing for five consecutive Sundays. On Tuen Ng Festival (12 June), better known in English as Dragon Boat Festival, The Link will organise a special “Dragon Boat Summer Jam” and deliver an array of music and dance performances to share the joy of the festival with all visitors.

Five consecutive Sundays filled with great shows and a wide variety of musical acts
“Sunday Summer Jam” features a wide variety of artists, including many new local emerging music groups who will serve as the opening act. By involving these bands, which include Tri-deuces, Matchbox, Lil' Ashes and Rachel Believes in Me etc., The Link will give visitors the chance to be exposed to outstanding new acts on the Hong Kong music scene. Musical performances will also include “Unplugged Music Day” with a cappella, the Fête de la Musique portion of “Le French May”, Joint-U Music Performance and “Stanley Plaza Show Up” providing a public platform for stage performance. Application details will be announced in Jun, please visit www.stanleyplaza.com.

The Link sponsors The Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships for the second time
On Tuen Ng Festival (12 June), the Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships, sponsored by The Link for the second time, will be held in Stanley Plaza. To coincide with the festivities, a special carnival-like “Dragon Boat Summer Jam” will be held as part of “Sunday Summer Jam”. In addition to featured band performances by Quatro Ritmo, Azucar Latina, @One and Les Gromechkos, there will be a Broadway dance performance, a frenetic African dance and samba dance performance. Visitors can take photos of the festive atmosphere, and those who check-in and upload their snaps to Facebook right away will be rewarded with a foldable water bottle.

Hilda Wong, Head of Marketing of The Link Management Limited, said, “The Link is devoted to promoting music creation and cultural exchange events to allow customers to experience different styles of music from around the world and art performances for free. We are pleased to again be a part of this annual summer celebration of music and dance in Hong Kong.
