It’s been 10 years since the birth of the 330 music festival to celebrate the birthday of Kou (the guitarist of Suffocated and Spring/Autumn fame) and the festival has grown to become one of the biggest indoor metal festivals in China. For musicians and fans alike this event promises a great feast of metal as repeated metal miracles intoxicate all your senses. This year’s event pushes the boundaries of Chinese metal festivals in terms of stage design, audio equipment and, of course, all twelve carefully selected bands, to ensure Chinese heavy metal perfection. Ten years of gathering, ten years of memories, ten years of classics and ten years of metal will melt together on the 19th of March. The sponsors, Suffocated, will draw on all their experience to give a festival to remember. Heavy metal soldiers, hold high your horns, let`s mosh!
