, which is just a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from Shanghai by train, is hosting their own rawk music festival from April 30 to May 2 -- the Nanjing (International) Music Festival
. Or I think it's called the "Blossom
" music festival, I would imagine in honor of the super fantastic NBC sit-com Blossom
staring Mayim Bialik. Three days of live music in Nanjing with some of China's biggest names on stage -- Carsick Cars, Pet Conspiracy, SUBS, SMZB, AK47, Cui Jian -- along with some acts from Japan, the States, and beyond.
Here's the line-up of acts.
Tickets are a reasonable 200rmb, available here, and the train ride is easy peasy as well, so think about doing that if you like. We're still awaiting the info on their electronic stage, but it's being put together by Antidote, so expect plenty local knob-twiddling superstars.
[UPDATE:] On top of "urgent's" comment below, here's a link to the full list of electronic acts.
