Representatives from event sponsor Xiamen Ferry Company said that they intend for the festival to boost international art exchanges and to promote awareness of Gulangyu and its listing as a World Cultural Heritage site.
Local participating choirs include the Gulangyu Choir, the Ludao Philharmonic Choir, the Number Six Middle School Choir and the Xiamen Song and Dance Theatre Choir. Other domestic choirs performing at the festival include the Beijing Harmonia Choir, the Hong Kong Children's Choir and the Inner Mongolia Children's Choir.
