While many of you are probably as heartbroken as us about the cancellation of Boris, there are still loads of opportunities to thrash to some live music during this year's JUE Fest. Here's everything live, loud, and lush going on over the next ten days.

You will get absolutely creamed by this epic line up of local and international acts. The Temple line up includes local punks Gum Bleed, interstellar psych from Solaris, wall of fuzz from Death Narcissus, and new waves from DiD. Make sure to catch HVAD from Denmark (next level stuff!), along with a lengthy list of cool cats doing mental electronics till it’s time to break your fast come morning. 10pm.

Trained in the art of banjo, fiddle, upright base, and finger picking good guitar, they will also be schooling the crowd in some traditional dances to complete the experience. 9.30pm. RMB 100 (includes the new album)
