So, Star Max kicks off today in Beijing’s Ditan Park, close to the Lama temple. I wish I could be more excited about it today but I’m victim of festival overload. The organizers are basically recycling the same lineups/acts every couple of months and just throwing it out again.
This one though is in Beijing, at Ditan Park so it’s more acceptable. Think of it as 5 days of concerts at a new venue in town with the Tue/Fri/Sat/Sun being great days that are more than worth heading out for, especially if this great weather keeps it up. I’m looking forward to catching XTX whom i haven’t seen play in quite some time despite sharing a few beers with him in not too distant past.
