Yesterday in Shanghai Yan’an west road no. 1262, SHFT. X Adidas attempted to organize a stellar party. The event had high goals, which included bringing some top talent ranging from Pusha T, TOKiMONSTA, Kirs all the way up to Alesso in addition to four artists performing live.
As expected, the turnout was lit, the anticipate crowd exceeded security’s expectations as close to 500 poured into the streets to catch one of their beloved artists. Kids, for instance, made a brief appearance and was swiftly escorted back to his hotel as advised by security. Many fans still stuck in the rain were instructed to go home as the event was to be cancelled.
A portion of the electronic dance music fans were lucky enough to skip through after waiting a wet 45 mins until about 8pm; they were greeted with the sounds of Pusha T. Although the journey to this point was strenuous and irritating, the crowd responded as if it was well worth it! The vibe and crowd was positive and danced in their damp clothes for the duration of the set.
At last, the moment most were waiting for, Alesso finally was able to jump on the decks at about 9pm. Many fans were nervously waiting, full of anxiety worrying that he also shared the same fate as Kirs. However short his set was, it was also well worth the wait. Everyone knows how positive and epic Alessos’ sets can be, and this was no different. Thirty minutes was enough to keep the fans at ease until they catch his full set at Storm Shanghai on Saturday the 1st of October from 7:30 to 8:30!
