The 3rd annual Intro festival was held last month. The venue this year was not as good as it’s predecessors, but it was still a good time. This years venue took place at a run down carnival area about an one hour outside of Beijing. The beginning of the music festival was a little slow, but as more and more people arrive the party became quite awesome.
Our day started as made our trek from Dongzhimen to the local April Gourmet so that we could stock up on drinks & food for our journey to the venue. Since we had a pretty large group this year, we had to take a couple of taxis over to the 798 art district and then transfer onto a bus. For some reason the venue was changed at the last minute, which I was kind of bummed about because the original Intro Festival Venue was pretty awesome. After about a 45 minute bus ride, we arrived at the festival. It was pretty empty in the beginning of the party because I think people were kind of confused of the last minutes changes that were made.
At around 5:00pm the venue was packed full of people. It was a pretty awesome party minus the limit on alcohol being served. For some reason it was impossible to buy any beer or drinks. They were limited the consumption that took place this year. Good thing I was prepared!
As the night developed, there was an awesome light show that took place. We ended up leaving early because we ran out of drinks and everybody got kind of bored.
I would highly recommend anyone going to the party next year to be 100% prepared before arriving!
