Concrete & Grass MUSIC FESTIVAL 2016

In the spirit of that videogame everyone’s been playing: We caught them all.
Noise-meisters, Party-starters, Legends. Hit-makers, Hip-shakers, Renegades of Funk. Beasties and humanoids alike. 60 artists across 4 stages.

The full lineup for Concrete & Grass 2016 has everything from flamboyant J-rock and Cantonese hip-hop to big-bass Bollywood and American slacker rock. It’s the best of China and the world, compressed into two remarkable days of music.

We’re hugely excited, and pretty proud of this one. We’ve been working round-the-clock for 9 months now, putting this all together. So we’re pretty sure you could come to the festival without knowing a single song by a single band, and still spend a magical couple of days hanging out, discovering new music and real fans. We’ve got you covered!

This one goes deep. A true post-headliner bill with a few headliners thrown in anyway. =)
Tickets for Concrete & Grass are available at Damai (CN):

Pricing details are at the end of this release.

And don’t forget that music is just the beginning. There’s plenty of action beyond the stages, and this year, The Garage zone – with its outsider art and freewheeling installations – is generously supported by SHANGPIN.COM/TOPSHOP/TOPMAN.  There’ll also be craft cocktails from the dark side, objects of wonder and delight, food (so much food), sports, games, bad puns, ice cream and a few other surprises we’ve thrown in.

But let’s get to the names.
So who wanders our Place Less Ordinary, playing the sounds of the future?
