春节快乐!! JUE | Music + Art Festival goes large

Dear Friends, once more into the breech, once more.

It is that time of the year again, the time when dragons turn to snakes. We apologize profusely for our inconsistency over the last 6 weeks, but Christmas and Chinese New Year in quick succession always make for posting light. January is also the month of finalizing everything for our JUE | Music + Art festival, which is going into year 5 in March 2013. And it’s looking like a bit of a monster, even if we do say so ourselves. Come and join the party:

Gang of Four playing with AV Okubo? Grimes bringing her Pitchfork endorsed weirdness to the Mao’s? Frank Turner, How to Dress Well or Marshall Allen of Sun Ra Arkestra playing in China for the first time aged 89? Or wanna watch a world premiere of a documentary about UK bands going to the furthest reaches of China, or an expose of Mongolian hip hop, or a cookery class with a dyed in the wool Beijing oi-punk? Markets, workshops, readings, improv. JUE has the lot.

We’re back on the 15th February. Until then, we love you all very much!
