As darkness fell over 798 on Saturday evening, crowds began to gather in front of First Factory, drawn by the muffled beats already emanating from the brick-walled warehouse. Beginning in the afternoon, some of China’s best young musicians had been working the stage, ranging from electronic pioneers like B6, Sulumi, and Dead J, to experimentalists White+, to power-rockers Queen Sea Big Shark (aka Houhai Sharks). The day also saw a slew of film screenings and workshop talks over at Beijing House, as well as the steady blinking, beeping and bopping of the installations all across the gallery district. But then it was time to party.
