Sands China is gearing up to host the first edition of a two-month-long Japanese arts festival dubbed Contempo. It’s being touted as an event that merges art, fashion and music “into a single spectacle.” 

There’ll be Japanese pop groups, exclusive artworks from a leading gallery, three-star Michelin cuisine and “the oldest Kimono brand in the world,” according to ConTempo’s website. Its organisers hope that the event will lure plenty of visitors to the SAR.

The Contempo festival is set to take place between 1 February and 29 March 2024 and will be hosted at the Londoner Macao.

“The first edition [of Contempo] features a world-class program that brings the pinnacle of Japanese culture together under one roof,” said the organisers.

Featured artists include the idol groups Takane No Nadeshiko and Karen Na Ivory, the surrealist painter Keitoku Toizumi, and the sculptor Takaoki Tajima.

Some tickets are already on sale and Contempo’s exact schedule is being updated here.
