Boasting a current tally of an astonishing 45 events across 17 days (Mar 7-23), JUE is set to be one of the biggest festivals in the Beijing calendar this year. We at the Beijinger have scoured the immense event listings and compiled our favorite's together to assist you in tackling this festival head-on. Below are our top three music picks:
PICTUREPLANE MAR 8
The Colorado native is ice cold when he hits the decks with his heady techno tracks. This is our generation’s equivalent to Juan Atkins or Richard James, and it’s all live, baby. Pictureplane.
PAUL COLLINS’ BEAT MAR 15
With over 30 years experience in the music biz, proto-punk icon Paul Collins will be dishing out the jams with the verve of a true master. Stop by to see what all of the fuss is about. You won’t be disappointed. Yugong Yishan.
LEE RANALDO TALK MAR 16
Known for being the chief axeman in Sonic Youth, Lee Ranaldo knows how to wield a guitar. Luckily for us he’s willing to share some of that knowledge in an open workshop. Ullens Center for Contemporary Art.
You can also find our top picks for Interactive, Film, and Eco-Friendly events listed on our blog.
These events were first listed in our March 2014 issue.
