boy oh boy if this turns out to be real!! Shanghai, you will have earned yourself about 20 extra notches on the niubility scale.
So rumours have been floating around for a little while about a lineup unrivalled so far in China and that’s even when we talk about that famed CHaoyang Pop Festival in 2007! How is this?
Aerosmith, John Legend, MIA, Jake Bugg, Carly Rae Jepsen, Suede, Limp Bizkit and Alt-J. They would be joined by a strong list of Chinese and Mandopop acts: Reflector, Omnipotent Youth Society, Hebe from SHE, Soda Green just to name a few!
Why am i bringing it up now? the evidence that it might actually happen is overwhelming:
1- screenshot from ministry of culture approving the festival:
2- screenshot of the lineup and time slots
So… another case of the great big hoax or the real thing? here’s hoping it’s a hoax because otherwise, i have to consider the prospects of spending about 10days down there between the Metallica gig and this.
