Shalanaya festival was a trip out of the Golden Week chaos. It took place on the relaxing shores of Dianshan lake on October 3 to 5, and brought together dance music with yoga classes, workshops, fire performances, and a market. The sounds took on a psychedelic bent, with two stages playing psytrance, techno, and chill-out tunes from over 60 local and international DJs and bands. At the same time, partyers took part in Japanese bondage workshop, hula hoop contests, Tibetan and Moroccan singing, and more. Take a dose of the photos of the festival, and then climb down the rabbit hole that is Shanghaiist Life’s Facebook page for a look at everything that went on.
