MIDI And Strawberry Full Lineup, Music Links, MIDI Transport Updates

By Apr 29, 2015 Nightlife
So, Sacco had some free time over the weekend and went through every single act playing at this weekend's MIDI Taihu and Strawberry Festivals. This week's Music Monday featured ten of the best artists (and a few of the worst), but this wire goes a lot further. Like, YouTube links to almost every artist playing at the festivals, a full translated schedule, and more.

Also, we have some much needed transport info about getting to MIDI Festival out in Suzhou. All of that after the jump.

MIDI Taihu Festival


May 1–3 @ Camp MIDI Taihu
Price: 150rmb per day at the door

Getting There: This happens near Suzhou, about 80km / 1.5 hours from the city. MIDI hasn't provided any English info about this, so we dug around a bit. You've got a few options. One is taking a high-speed train to Suzhou Railway station and then taking either a cab (~100rmb) or one of the official MIDI buses for 17rmb. Those are at the North Square, but you're best off looking for this:

苏州站北广场汽车客运站 (地址:苏州市苏站路27号)

According to this Douban page (in Chinese), they have buses leaving regularly between 10am–4pm, and returning between 9-11pm. On May 3, the return buses will come back between 6–11pm. Also a few buses returning to the railway station on May 4 between 10am–noon. Basically, all these buses leave when they are full. There's no set schedule.

Another option is taking a cab from Shanghai. Guessing that's gonna cost between 300–500rmb. Baidu maps says it should cost about 361rmb, but that's not always accurate. Not so bad if you split with some friends.
