UPDATE: sometimes-contributor Sam Jacobs wrote in to tell us exactly what was up with the Electrograss festival:
The Electrograss festival happened at the same venue last year and for those who missed it it was a nicely organized little event (it was called Electro Trash that time around).
This year promises to be a bit bigger with over 20 DJ’s playing a wide variety of music (3 are listed on the flyer because one of the organizers, DJ Mr Tsang has a weird sense of humor). Yes there is a chance of rain tomorrow night, but the venue is an old mansion on Donghu Lu with indoor and outdoor space.
The entrance is kind of opposite Element Fresh. There’s more info on the Facebook page or just call Mr Tsang on his personal cell phone number and bother him about stuff: 15921982290
Well there you go. Now you know.
We recently stumbled upon what seems like it could be a fun way to spend Saturday evening: a festival called “Electrograss” that’s featuring three kinds of electronic music.
In room one we have: Hip-hop/breaks/funk
Behind door two there is: Electro/house
And outside in the grass arena you’ve got: Beats/jazz
But strangely for something billing itself as a “festival,” we can’t seem to find much more information about the event. Besides the contact number of the flyer for The Source (158 Xinle Lu near Donghu Lu), which said that pre-sale tickets are 60RMB, details are surprisingly scarce.
Based on a lack of solid details and the strong likelihood of a thunderstorm on Saturday night, PLUS the fact that Donghu Hotel (the venue) seemed to have no idea that it was going on (though that could’ve been because of a clueless receptionist), it might be best to wait this one out and pay the 90RMB on the door.
Where’s the door? At 70 Donghu Lu near HuaiHai Lu.
