Yes, we know we just went through one festival, but we can’t help getting a little psyched for the next one already.
Coming up on May 23 is the Antidote Festival of Electronic Music, located about an hour away at Zhujiajiao. Running from about 1pm to 8pm, the festival will be showcasing the talents of B6, Uprooted Sunshine Soundsystem, Lon, Reptile & Retard (a favorite of ours!), and many, many others. There will even be buses to take you from various locations in Shanghai to Zhujiajiao and back, so you don’t need to worry your head about transportation.
Thing is though, tickets are limited! There’s only 450 of them and, since we’re just two weeks away, they’ll probably go fast. The Antidote folks have told us that a blue-haired peacock (yeah, like the bird) will be selling advance tickets (60RMB) at live shows all around town this week:
- Tonight, she’ll be at Yuyintang for the Subs show. (1731 Yan’an Xi Lu (entrance on Kaixuan Lu), 延安西路1731号)
- Then, on Friday, you’ll be able to catch her hanging with Bananas at Shelter. (5 Yongfu Lu near Fuxing Xi Lu, 永福路5号)
- If you don’t make it to that, she’ll be rocking to Brain Failure at Zhijiang Dream Factory on Saturday. (4F, Building B, 28 Yuyao Lu near Xinzha Lu (inside New Factories) 余姚路28号，同乐坊内)
- And if you’re out late, she’ll be hop-skipping to Anar After-Hours to catch the Dropkicks and Hotter than Teppanyaki the same night. (129 XingFu Lu near Fahuazhen Lu, 幸福路129号)
She’s a busy little chick, ain’t she?
If trying to hunt her down sounds a little too hard, you could always just go to ENO shop and pick up tickets there: No.139-23,Changle Road 长乐路139-23号
