The picnic should include strawberries of course. I recommend jelly shots of vodka strawberry, strawberries in red wine, special strawberry brownies, and plain sweet delicious strawberries.
Now the festival goes from Sunday to Tuesday. Tickets on pre-sale are 100rmb per day or 240rmb for the three days, or 120 at the door. Music starts at 1pm and the last shows at 9.30pm, so if you stay there all day you might be back to home or your next stop around midnight.
Read and print. The plan.
