On July 11, the first group of 70 competitors gathered for auditioning and trial performances in the Office of Execution Committee for the 2010 "Shoton Star" Singing Contest in Lhasa, capital city of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.

The "Shoton Star" singing contest is one of the many events to be held during the 2010 Lhasa Shoton Festival from August 10 to 16, 2010.

In Tibetan language, Shoton means "yogurt – banquet". And the Shoton Festival, also called "Yogurt Festival", is a public gathering among the local people to enjoy all types of indigenous yogurt.

This festival is also dubbed as "Tibetan Opera Festival" and "Buddha Displaying Festival" since Tibetan Opera performances, unfolding of Buddha paintings and a series of other featured activities will be held during this period.
