Watch A Documentary About Raving On The Great Wall Of China

Minimal China tells the story of the first raves to hit the Great Wall in the ’90s.

Even with sufficient time to think about it, it’s hard to imagine a cooler place to throw a rave than on the Great Wall of China. Apparently we’re not the first people to think this, either. Back in the ’90s, rave culture hit China, and a few enterprising DJs and promoters decided to set up and throw a temporary party on the wall. Fortunately, someone decided to document this with video, and that’s where Minimal China comes in. It’s a documentary about the late ’90s rave scene in China that explains how these raves came about. It then goes on to provide a detailed exploration of the scenes in and between the cities of Peking and Chengdu. Watch it below. (International viewers, most of it is in English with German subtitles).
