You can plan a pretty picnic but you can't predict the weather. The folks organizing this weekend's MIDI Festival
laid some big plans for 2014. They talked about free camping for 5,000 people all weekend, free entry into the festival after 10pm, and an electronic stage raging all night.
Welp, that's not happening anymore. Nope. According to the organizers, local authorities won't allow any nighttime activities at music festivals. Also, the camping tent supplier quit. Must have been tired from pitching all those tents.
But here's some good news - MIDI did get permission to extend the festival until midnight on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This means there's now about 259 DJs playing in 33 hours. Plus, you can see Beijing band SUBS, Xi'an nu-metal outfit Twisted Machine, and CONNNNNRRRAAAANKKKKK. It's still a music festival.
