With the hope of transcending culture and ethnicity, Emerging Young Artists has been striving to bring together musicians from different backgrounds and share their one-of-a-kind creativity to the public. We encourage multicultural communication and music fusion across genres. Our intention is to foster ambition, dream and inspiration.

A World Away is our music brand inspired by collaboration and cultural fusion since 2016. This unique music concept extends to a series of music workshops, as well as a concert that happens once a year. In the past three years, EYA has provided production and a stage for over 40 groups of musicians to showcase their talents.

This year, we are taking  “A World Away” from one concert to a indie music festival of three nights. 2019’s amazing lineup below are all excited to meet you at the end of May:
