Preview: 2015 Tuborg Greenfest Music Festival

By in Features on

Tuborg has hosted events in Kunming in the past, but the 2015 Tuborg Greenfest Music Festival looks to be bigger and louder than its predecessors. Featuring more than 20 acts from seemingly every conceivable musical genre, the two-day concert-party offers a large selection of disparate but popular bands coming from all corners of China and beyond.

The Greenfest Music Festival will be held September 19 and 20 at Kunming's enormous Hongta Athletic Center (昆明红塔体育中心) in the city's south. In addition to the usual heavy dose of metal, bands scheduled to perform will play punk, new wave, rap, psychedelia, rock, 50s-inspired pop and more.

Additional activities

In addition to three stages and dozens of performers, the 2015 Tuborg Greenfest Music Festival will feature a wacky photo studio equipped with make-up, wigs and masks, a graffiti wall and street art exhibit and what have been dubbed "eco-friendly games" by event organizers. There has also been talk of a hot air balloon, but details are so far lacking. As this event is hosted by Tuborg Beer, cold libations will of course be available in enormous quantities.

Ticketing and transportation

Advanced tickets for the 2015 Tuborg Greenfest Music Festival cost 120 yuan for a one-day pass and 190 yuan for the full weekend. You can currently purchase tickets online at three sites, Modern Sky, Damai and Weicifang. Tickets bought at the gate will cost 150 yuan for one day and 260 yuan for both. Brick and mortar ticket outlets accepting cash include Camel Bar, The Elephant Books, Vervo Club & Bar, and the Yunnan Art Theater.

Five buses will run at different intervals to and from the festival. The first leaves from Jiamei Plaza, near the Chenggong University Village at 11am and 1pm, and costs 25 yuan. The second departs from in front of the Hailifang Spa Holiday Hotel at noon only and costs 20 yuan. The third bus departs from Nanya Fengqing Mall at 12:30pm only and costs 20 yuan.

what about buses back to the city?

Hopefully some of these musicians will have something to "say".

I'm sure Seth Green above will.
