Shows You Can’t Miss – Strawberry Music Festival

Article by Tim King

It’s May and that can only mean one thing: the Strawberry Music Festival, the biggest music festival in Xi’an, is back! With two main stages and more than 30 bands, it promises to be another great weekend filled with some of China’s top musical talent. If you’re not really into the Chinese music scene, this is a great place to discover new bands and just generally enjoy a nice outing outside, but just in case you’d like some stuff to look forward to, we’ve gone through the lineup and picked out some of the best bands attending. So, if you decide to venture out to Da Ming Gong on the 13th and 14th to see what all the fuss is about, keep an eye out for these great bands.
