features a host of local DJs, good food, craft workshops and art installations. Taking place all over Dashilar's hutongs, 30RMB gets you entry and a meal, so get organized and pre-purchase your tickets now.
We're also buzzing for Saturday, when Café Zarah is teaming up with Back2Basics to host their latest installment of Hutong Sessions
. Head on down for good booze, chilled vibes and slick beats. For those who can't get enough of the Back2Basics DJs, the party keeps going at Lantern
with Belgian producer Locked Groove
, while DJ Mag Top 100 DJ (for four years running) Dannic
heads to Sir Teen
to play a killer set.
