Sep 7: Free the Robots

LA-based artist Chris Alfaro wants you to free some robots, ostensibly by dancing for their return to the sound of his musical project, Free the Robots. In addition to advocating for the rights of the artificially intelligent, Alfaro bumps a mind-bending mixture of hip-hop beats and electronic music, with moments of jazz and psychedelia. No word yet on whether there will be robots at the show.  

Thu Sep 7; tickets TBD; Dada, see event listing.

Sep 8: Optimo @ Dada

Optimo, or Optimo (Espacio) as they also go by, was founded in 1997 and ran until 2010 as a weekly Sunday-night club playing techno, electronic and rock at the Sub Club in Glasgow. It’s also the collective name for the night’s resident DJ duo JD Twitch and JG Wilkes, who continue to tour and release new music. This year marks the duo’s 20th anniversary. As part of the celebrations, Optimo will play at Dada Beijing on September 8. Support comes Tanner and Juhstynn. And in case you're interested in learning more, you can check out our interview with the duo right here.  

Fri Sep 8, 10pm; tickets TBD; Dada Beijing, see event listing.

Sep 8: Eli Escobar

The NYC-based house and disco DJ will be traveling all the way from the East Coast to Beijing just in time for Migas' Friday night party. Support comes from DJs Watermelon and Nassdak. Get ready to dance.

Fri Sep 8, 10pm-late. The Bar at Migas, see event listing.

Sep 9: Australian Brewery Pop-Up Launch Party

This one’s for all you Aussies. The Australian Brewery Pop-Up will be at Hatchery all month long.

The launch party is being held this Saturday. The AFL Finals will be on and there will be live music, free beer and more.

Sat Sep 9. The games start at 2.20pm and the live music starts at 8.30pm. Hatchery, see event listing.

Sep 9-10: Budweiser Storm Festival

Since starting out in Shanghai 2013, the Budweiser Storm Festival has been busy establishing itself as the Mainland’s version of EDM megafestivals like Tomorrowland and Ultra. The festival has now expanded to six cities, making its Beijing debut last year. Last year proved to be a smashing success and the Storm Electronic Music Festival is back for round two. The 2017 Storm Festival will take place at Beijing Topwin Golf and Country Club this weekend on September 9 and 10. Just like every year, the 2017 lineup is killer. Axwell and Ingrosso, Empire Of The Sun, Dyro, Sidney Samson, Kaku, Junior & Royal and Neobie will be performing on Saturday (2-10pm). On Sunday, Don Diablo, Bassjackers, Alok, Cash Cash, Mike Williams and Sandro Silva will take the stage (2-10pm).
