Mellow Yellow Music Festival @SummerFest

Mamas – have you been meaning to go to a live music show, but are unsure about bringing the little ones along? If so, the inaugural Mellow Yellow Music Festival is just the thing for you! The idea behind it was partly inspired when The Underground’s founder and director Chris B, a mother of twin girls, wanted to introduce her children to live music when they were around six years old, but they found it too loud. The low-key festival is free entry and completely family-friendly, with laid-back and relaxing live music on the main stage, smaller groups of acoustic performers, booths with entertainment, as well as a children’s area and food stalls. For the entire line up and more details, you can click here.

When: Friday, 5 July, 3pm to 9pm
Where: Central Harbourfront Event Space, 9 Lung Wo Road, Central, Hong Kong
