Really looking forward to seeing DJ Shadow! I've been listening to him since the late 90's and he really peaked my interest in "trip-hop" back in the day. I've seen him perform once in probably 2005 with the "Soulsides" crew and it was a performance to remember!

I've been listening to electronic music one way or another for 30 years, and have loved almost everything DJ Shadow has done since even before 'Entroducing'. In all that time, I've never once seen him play. It feels fateful that I fins myself in Chengdu when he's about to headline this show, so of course I have no choice but to be there!

well i know i am alone here, but I am really looking forward to Dj JustCharles. I have heard so much about his groovy style and I cannot WAIT to get my narrow butt onto the dance floor when he drops his funky beats.

I've seen a lot of the local DJs and like their stuff but I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm most looking forward to DJ Shadow.

Looking forward to seeing the new Panda club open in the East! Dj Shadow is always a nice act to see specially because he's been in the game for quiet some time now, Efdemin is also a very nice dj who I saw a couple of times back home (once in a club and on a big festival).. The local dj, foreign as well as local, will be able to pump the beats out of the speakerz and show their talent again. This all said "looks like It's gonna be a great electronic festival" !

2nd would have to be Liman. Seen him a couple of times, both in Chengdu and Chongqing, and the least I can say is that he fucking rocks!

3rd choice is Chengdu's own Geezer. Was the first quality DJ I saw when I came to China 4 years ago, and if I'm not mistaken he's Chongqing ren which gives him bonus points.

4th is Salumi. Seen him once in Chongqing in a small venue, and at the time couldn't help but think how much better his sound would translate on a bigger stage.

and 5th is Yang Bing, who's style isn't what I normally get down to, but he's been to Chongqing a few times over the past couple years, and can defo throw down.

I'm most looking forward to seeing DJ Shadow. I saw him in 2007 and he was awesome!

Like everybody else I'm looking forward to DJ Shadow, as well. I was looking through the Panda Festival line-up hoping to see a familiar name, and then I found just the right thing, just the right thing.

I don't have a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th even because I've never heard of any of these bands... First time in China so it'll be good to get familiar with the Chinese music scene!

Actually I'll say that I'm looking forward to hearing Charlie since I randomly met him at the gym once. Nice guy, hopefully good music!

oh yeah those crazy guys from Grammaphonetics (sic) I would go along and see them too...cos I am a groupie and it wouldn't be right to miss them after seeing them at zebra, hemp, then hemp...then I think it was hemp again? 3 times at Hemp is that right? I dunno. Seems like whenever they are playing things get crazy and my memory gets hazy...
