Strawberry Festival 2014: A Final ? Schedule

As announced a while ago, Strawberry dates were settled and it’s back to Tongzhou canal park with the usual suspects. This year, Modern Sky’s newest little protegee and investment, Maggie Cheung, is one of the headliners along with Finland’s HIM and France’s Justice.

The usual suspects, pretty much every band in China, are on the bill one way or another, so some hotel in Tongzhou is getting fully booked over 3 days.

A couple of notes:

1- XTX opening Strawberry?? WTF? he’s either in their bad graces or has somewhere to be that day forcing him to play early and get the hell out.
2- Maggie Cheung, untested, pretty much closing the festival. don’t get me wrong, she might pull off a great gig but her headlining without experience is just shady business.
3- Seriously, it they have exclusive contracts this year..there is no one left to play MIDI.
4- I would consider going if they have some freaking G&T. I don’t ask for much but G&T is my flavour of choice at music festivals to stay refreshed.
5- Day 2 is looking like a really solid music day with tons of good bands playing the field, especially at the love and strawberry stages.
6- I like the slogan: SNS life is rubbish/

Big ups to Josh at SmartBeijing for doing a lot of work on this schedule. I’ve shamelessly ripped off part of it but will find sometime to pay him in yunnan cheese.
