Listen up! Feel like a weekend getaway from the Hai, or just down to party? How about raging with 60,000 people… on the beach!? The musical festival machine that is Midi, is at it again. This time they’re putting on a 4 day fest in the city of Ri Zhao (Shandong province) called ‘Ocean Midi’. Its going to be one of the biggest parties China has ever seen. For a country with a 4 thousand year history, that’s pretty rad.
Earlier this year, Shanghai Midi Festival in Century Park felt massive with two stages – Ocean Midi has four. Two rock stages – the Tang Stage and the Song Stage, one main Electro Stage, and another mobile Electro Stage on a truck!
Tang Stage has confirmed legendary rock stars like Zui Jian, He Yong, Tang Dynasty, and British Sea Power from London. The Song Stage lineup is also packed with big artists, and Ocean Midi will also showcase up and coming Chinese bands with loads of talent.
The Electro Stage will be presenting DJs from: DO Hits, Acupuncture, The Ice Cream Truck, and Void – 33 DJ’s from all over China will combine to create a 4 day non-stop party. The Electro Stage on the TRUCK will be bumping on the beach from 1pm to Sunset. Then it will join the other stages, and the party won’t stop till late into the morning.
Sounds pretty decent right? But how to get there? Check out www.ctrip.com to book everything. It’s the easiest and cheapest travel website. You’ve got two options:
