Ditan folk music fest

Folk for folks

Folk for folks

As reported by the various media outlets in Beijing ( thebeijinger blog ), this upcoming holiday weekend is music-loaded! Heck, if you open the dictionary and look up “music-loaded”, you’ll see “May 1-3 in beijing” :p
While all the shows are nicely advertised with full performance schedules, it’s been hard to find information about schedules for Ditan Park Folk Music Festival. Fear not, yours truly did some digging and managed to get the goods (it wasn’t that tough actually, all it took was an email to the organizers that they answered).
Both days are loaded with great performances by local acts that are a mainstay around the Beijing live scene… I’m personally looking forward to saturday’s performances by “Afrokoko Roots” as well as Mademoiselle et les Chinois

Please note Xiao He is playing on Friday Night not Saturday as described in the TimeOut magazine.
