Dash Berlin & Hardwell in Beijing

When I heard that Far East Movement, Dash Berlin and Hardwell is coming to Beijing I could not believe it! 2 of my favourite artists right here! It got a lot better when I knew I was gonna work at the festival, getting a staff pass to enter anywhere! In the daytime I handed out flyers and sold burgers for 3 Sums which was a lot of fun. It's been 12 years since I worked in a burger joint and now again! When Dash Berlin started playing it felt like nothing could be better right here, right now! The gig was amazing and all the best songs were played! When Hardwell went on we got on backstage to see him and also in front of the crowd to give out flyers, water bottles and burgers that were "leftovers". This night was by far the best night in my life so far! Never had this much fun and amazing time with great artists like this!!

Worker pass, good enough to walk freely everywhere in the area! Awesome! 
 Stadium around 11 am, still very quiet
 Plreparing the burger stand for 3 Sums. This is the only venue in the whole concert area where you can get food!! 

Was really a lot of work to put everything up and it took us 5 hours before the first burger was done. Biggest problem was that there was not enough electricity to run the kitchen. We needed to fix a lot of electricians on the spot to wire it up. HOW CHINA can you be so unorganised and unprepared for huge festivals like this in the center of the city??
 Interview room for Dash Berlin and Hardwell. Why do I know it? Because 2 hours before I took this picture 4000 of our burgers and ingredients were here making it stinky, greasy on the floor and really messy 

 Would you like to buy a VIP set of burgers? 16 burgers for 1000 rmb which equals to about 130 Euros
 Spray art by the main gate and an amazing day
 Handing out flyers for 3 hours, the most white guy working in the while stadium. We gave out a total of 4000 of these! In the end of the night we just threw them into the crowd from the stage area
 Burger stand almost done
 The banner broke so we had to do like McGyver would have done :D :D
 The first burgers and fries done! Nom nom
 First artist up, Far East Movement like a G 6!!!
 Backstage with Far East Movement
 Darkness approaches and so does the mega artists! 
 The VVIP area, to get a table here you pay a small fee of 10.000 rmb
 Not much crowd in from of the stage around 4-5pm 
Possibly the best "photobomb" ever!!! Kim Jong-Un Junior
This is how the picture SHOULD look like :D:D Hahahahaha, I laughed so much when I saw these next morning
Got to go and play with the lights for a bit too, sorry Dash 

In front of the stage when Hardwell is playing, this was the most amazing part of the evening
 We were giving these thirsty and hungry people in the audience water and burgers :) REALLY love this picture, thank you iPhone!!

 On backstage with Hardwell, bad picture quality but I ran out of battery of my pocket camera...
Crowd was awesome!!
