草民音乐节-自由野2013

Back this year at Freespace Fest 2013, Grassfest offers lawn space for anyone who wants to take part, be it a music performance or a public art display. If you would like to promote your music, there is also a dedicated stall to sell your CDs.

Thickest Choi
Born in 1983, Hong Kong. He finished his bachelor (Journalism and Communication) and master (Visual Culture Studies) degrees in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and worked in HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, The Hong Kong Institute of Education and The University of Hong Kong. He was one of the co-ordinators of the Complaints Choir of Hong Kong, and launched the Lawnmap Hong Kong project in 2011.

In his early stage, Photography and Video was his medium of creation. Now he concentrates his effort to revive and reveal the beauty of the city.

 

It's such a pleasure to bring Grassfest back in the West Kowloon. The coordinators of Lawnmap have always had the idea of having music festivals but it was hard to believe that despite the abundance of big and small lawns in Hong Kong, there has been next to nothing until 2011 when MaD invited us to organise a public event in West Kowloon. Without much thought about resources and experience, we decided to go ahead with our first Grassfest in January 2012 and it was unexpectedly successful. The second Grassfest held at the Freespace Fest last year was even more popular, where lawns were packed with festival-goers enjoying the beautiful nature of music!

Learning from past experiences, this year's Grassfest will uphold the principles of being "local", "free" and "open" to allow even more local creative talents to participate and opportunities for Hong Kong citizens to learn about local music and arts alternatively. We hope to open the possibilities of lawns as cultural spaces, and that its value is no less than any permanent art gallery and venue.

See you then pal!
