One of China's oldest, rawest music festivals moves to Suzhou this spring for a three day festival during the May holiday. Pure rock and roll -- no electronic music or EDM. Expect a lot of true fans. Highlights include Residence A (Friday @ 2.50pm), Killswitch Engage (Friday @ 8.20pm), Nova Heart (Saturday @ 3.40pm), Dreamshade (Saturday @ 8.10pm), SUBS (Sunday @ 5.50pm). Tickets are 150rmb a day or 350rmb for three days at the door, or 120rmb/day and 300rmb/three days pre-sale. The site is 80km from the city center -- you're looking at at least 300rmb if you took a cab there. The other option is to take a train to Suzhou Railway Station and then take one of the MIDI buses (17rmb) or cab it from there ~100rmb. More information about transportation in Chinese on Douban. Runs from 1-10pm each day. Camping is an option. For a FULL lineup and complete time schedule, music links, etc., click here.
