Yunnan's annual festival season has undoubtedly arrived, and after a two-year absence the organizers of 500KM Music Festival have arranged another weekend event and found a beer sponsor. The newest festival to hit the province is scheduled to be held at Kunming's sprawling World Horticultural Expo Garden (世博园).
The 2013 Tuborg Greenfest Music Festival (2013乐堡绿放音乐节) will be take place September 28 and 29 and perhaps differs from similar events because it lacks a pop icon like 2011 500KM headliner Cui Jian (崔健).
Instead, the festival line-up features a large selection of disparate but popular bands coming from all corners of China. Kunming will be represented by Yellow Barcode and DJ Maxi, as well as Shanren and AK-47 — the latter two having relocated from the Spring City to Beijing.
As with many Yunnan festivals the schedule is divided between two stages. Bands will perform on either the Greenfest or the Tuborg stages. Hopefully they will not be facing each other, as they were two years ago ago at 500KM. Tickets for the event can be purchased online or at Wheatfield Bookstore. Single day passes are 100 yuan and two-day tickets cost 160 yuan.
