Beijing’s First Techno Festival Posted by on May 24, 2009 in Culture, News, Vocabulary

Yesterday I wen to a huge 音乐会 (concert) where the only music was 电子音乐 (electronic music).  It was held at a 广场 (plaza) in the 798 area, a place known for its new-age 艺术 (art).  Notably during the festival, there were very few 垃圾桶 (trash cans) near the areas where people were 跳舞 (dancing), leaving cups strewn all over the place.  Some people tried to jump up on stage, but a group of 保安 (guards) rushed over to move them away.  The afterparty was canceled owing to 考虑 (considerations) about security.  It’s not like this is the first time that Beijing has hosted an event with a large 观众 (audience).  Oh well, 下次吧. (next time)
