Aurora will re-open in the Gongti area of Sanlitun, Beijing this Friday, June 11. 

Three nights of partying will take place at the venue over Dragon Boat festival weekend from Friday until Sunday, with what Aurora boss DJ Pancakelee described as “Beijing’s best techno team” – the lineup of DJs includes 鱼头泡饼, Jackson Lee, Huang Weiwei, Bass Guo, Sunk and Lindy.

The new Gongti venue will feature a slightly different layout to the old Sanlitun venue. On the first floor, there will be a Mexican restaurant and hip-hop music. Meanwhile, on the second floor, there will be techno music. 

Pancakelee also stressed that the new venue will include “updated sound and lighting systems.” 

Furthermore, he gave a hint as to where Aurora may open in the future. There are already Aurora venues in Beijing, Xiamen and Sanya’s Houhai Bay. 

Plans are in the pipeline for a second beach club in Sanya’s Yalong Bay. However, nothing has been confirmed yet. Watch this space!
