China has of late been overflowing with music festivals being organized throughout the country. By far, the one that garners the most respect is the one that has been at this game the longest – MIDI. It went from a one time a year event to now several events a year throughout the country.
They have just announced this year’s Shenzhen festival lineup which you can see from the lineup above…the theme for this year’s festival is also anti-drugs. The festival organizers MIDI recently got into trouble because a number of students who were part of their music institute were busted for drug possession on their premises. Making this festival a major stance against drug use is a great way to clear their name.
MIDI continues to be a name synonymous with an organization that tries their best to promote and support authentic and REAL rock music in China.
