Great Wall Music Festival Posted by on Jun 7, 2013 in Culture

A few days ago, I taught everyone how to sleep on the Great Wall of China with a recap of my recent camping trip there. Well, that wasn’t the only recent trip I made out to this new Wonder of the World. Last month, myself along with a few thousand other people headed out to the Great Wall for a whole different reason – a huge electronic music festival.

What happens when a group of both international and local DJs throw a party for thousands of people next to the Great Wall of China? See for yourself in this highlight video from the 2013 installment of the Great Wall Music Festival, headlined by David Guetta.

    Hahaha… I see Lamar and Chris in your video around 0:27. Looks like you guys enjoyed the festival.

  3. Chris:

    Heya – I’m considering going to this year’s ‘Run and Rave’ festival, at the end of the month. In your opinion, is it worth going to? Also, do you know of anyone else who’s going, as I’d love to connect with some other people beforehand. Cheers.

      @Chris I’m not in China anymore so I hadn’t heard of that. Just looked it up and it sounds pretty cool! I’d say it’s worth checking out and I’m sure a lot of people will be going. -Sasha

        @sasha Ah, no worries – thanks! Yeah, looks pretty sweet. Thanks anyway.
