『STAND UP! CLASSIC FESTIVAL 2019』is the biggest outdoor Classical music festival in Japan. With the help of the Cuture and Tourism Organization of Kanagawa and Yokohama, it was succesfully held in the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse Special Site on 23rd Sept, 2018. There were more than 30,000 visitors last year which was out of our expectation, therefore we are going to extend the fesitval for one more day this year from 28-29th September (Sat-Sun).
As it's name suggests,『STAND UP! CLASSIC FESTIVAL 』is a festival that you are able to enjoy Classical music outside of a traditional concert hall. Having a beer or a cup of wine in your hand and enjoy the outdoor Classical music performances under the picturesque sky of Yokohoma, at the same time listen to the soundscape of the sea breeze and steam whistle while lying on a grass field, having a picnic with you family or gazing at the beautiful nightview and sunset of Yokohama. Besides the classical masterpieces, there will also be special collaboration performances with animation songs and orchestra. The charm of the『STAND UP! CLASSIC FESTIVAL 』is that you are able to enjoy more than 100 songs per day, which is also equally charming to the performers as well and therefore many of the performers participated last year are going to perform again this year.
