This month, Glam & M on the Bund are bringing the very best of music, talks and parties to Shanghai.
Friday, June 2nd: Join us at Glam for our 7th installation of the The Wall at Glam, where we display the works of a creator on the eastern wall of Glam. Whether they’re artists, architects, designers of cars, jewellery or even lingerie, they all have a spot on our wall. This month’s collaboration is with Israeli artist, Basmat Levin, whose vibrant paintings and hand-woven carpets are striking, colourful and oh-so-glam.
The launch party, on June 2nd, will celebrate her work with old school vinyl music from our good friend DJ Endy.
Saturday, June 3rd: As part of our Friday & Saturday DJ/live music nights, we host DJ Charp.
Charp arrived on the Shanghai electronic scene in 2008 and quickly became one of its prominent figures. He has launched a number of well-known residencies in Mao Club and Lola, which led to collaborations with international artists as well as playing in Shanghai’s biggest outdoor festivals and fashion events. Charp has a voracious appetite for a variety of styles of music including disco, house and techno. His sets are known for their energetic and melodious beats and for always moving the audience to their feet.
Friday, June 9th: DJ Gigi will be spinning beats as of 9:30pm.
