The best gigs in Beijing this December

Featuring Blastfemme, Safia and so many more

Safia plays Dec 16
Beijing's music scene frequently attracts some of the best names in music, both locally and from abroad, and December is no different. Don't miss the chance to rock out with a bunch of brilliant artists, right in your own backyard.

Events disappear from this page as they pass, so if you're looking at a sparse page you missed the boat [sad face]. But come back next month for another glut of gigs to keep you entertained.

They jokingly describe their sound as 'Skrillex and James Blake making sweet, tender love'.
