Sunshine and blue skies over our all-grass playpen. 4 stages of amazing music, from the pogo-happy Stage Left to the dark allure of the Yurt. The weirdness of the Garage. The most ultimate of Frisbee. Unicycle riding, poi spinning, great drinks and food. High-fives and hugs.
Concrete & Grass is China’s grooviest music festival. It happens in September each year, when the weather is warm and frequently perfect. It’s Shanghai’s own #APlaceLessOrdinary – chock-full of great bands, weird art, strange creatures and fun distractions. Our venue, the wonderful Shanghai Rugby Football Club, is a lovingly intimate space with lush fields of real grass.
We’re a little bit different from the average Chinese festival.
Our music lineup goes deep and wide, with a forensically assembled post-headliner bill in this cruel, headliner world. We’ve got something for everyone at the ‘Grass – from pop and emo to punk and metal, from shoegaze and hip hop, to the widest selection of electronic goodness this side of Tokyo, plus a liberal sprinkling of the unusual and unexpected. In short, the best of China and the world.
There’s also plenty of action beyond the stages. China’s young and restless, let loose in our wonderland. There’s outsider art, produced live. Installations to excite and (sometimes) provoke. Craft cocktails from the dark side. Objects of wonder and delight.
And let’s not forget food (so much food), sports, games, bad puns, ice cream and a few other surprises we like to throw every year.
It’s always exciting. Emotionally charged. The happiest weekend of the year. The perfect escape from the urban grind.
So join us in September. Take in the sights and sounds. The tastes and smells. Lose yourself to the music. Dance. It’s the sound of something extraordinary.
We can’t wait to see you here.
