MIDI Taihu 2016

Finished Ended on Mon May 2, 2016 , 1pm-10pm
MIDI Taihu Festival Camp
Gelin Park, Taihu Lake, Wujiang province, Suzhou


MIDI is China's oldest, rawest rock music festival. With no more MIDI in Beijing or Shanghai, they've been relegated to an old amusement park / campsite by Lake Taihu in Jiangsu Province. Cool place, sketchy rides. Unlike last fall's MIDI, this one is strictly live music, and the theme is "No Drugs We Rock," likely a response to last year's vice bust at the MIDI school in Beijing. For an idea of the vibe, check our photo gallery from MIDI Festival Fall 2015. Noteworthy acts include Protest the Hero, Veil of Maya, Lacuna Coil, Beijing stoner/sludge metal band Never Before, Nova Heart, The Fuzz, and Team Ghost, which is a band by a guy who used to be in M83. Full lineup on the flyer. Day tix are 150rmb pre-sale or 180rmb at the door; weekend pass is 400rmb pre-sale or 450rmb at the door. Goes from 1-10pm each day.
