We lived through Y2K and the start-up of the Large Hadron Collider. Now the end of the world is once again upon us. What better place to spend the Mayan apocalypse than in a bomb shelter designed for a nuclear holocaust? This Friday, December 21, the Meishi (没事) End of the World Party will take place in the air raid shelter under Yuantong Mountain.
The event will start at noon in the underground complex next to Shelter Bar. The event aims to "celebrate the dawning of a new era with a flourishing of our hopes and dreams; a feast of art, music and culture."
A creative market with food stalls will be held in the tunnels that lead to the bomb shelter. The former bunker, which lies underneath the city zoo, will be transformed into a live music venue and can accommodate hundreds of people. In addition to the market, a cash bar will be available with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Schedule of events
Afternoon: Creative market with food stalls and folk, blues, rock and improvised music performances
Evening: Band performances
Late night: DJs until the early morning
