So I was pretty bummed seeing festival line ups in China as of late; same ol’ bands and that kind of vibe. So Tenzenmen and I put out an open call to bands who are interested in coming to China. Ended up with 34 bands - a lot from Australia as that’s where the majority of our circles float about. But anyway, I put them on Douban and they are available for streaming here:

The Midi Music Festival, in spite of its location nearly 50 kilometers from the city center at the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park, drew everyone from punks to head bangers to little kids. This year’s theme of PM2.5 was meant to raise awareness about the harmful effects of air pollution, with Greenpeace unfurling banners over the Song Stage (宋舞台) during a set by singer Hao Yun (郝云).
