“Industrial Art and Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

The Chengdu East Music Park is based on an old TV tube factory! It is now a weirdly wonderful collection of Art Galleries, bars, restaurants and boutique shops. I first went there to help in an Art students' movie - they wanted a foreigner to play the part of a priest in a wedding ceremony. All good fun and was filmed in a mock up Church; there is a big section that has stage settings for amateur movies and wedding photographs.
Also in the Park is an old steam engine, as nearby used to be a locomotive works. The railways first came to Sichuan in 1952. My Chinese guide told me that in the past people couldn't get on and off the trains through the doors as they were so crowded, so people got in and out of windows!
I love the fact that they have used old Industrial pieces such as steel water tanks and coal trucks as pieces of Art. Brilliant place and great for taking a camera.

“Bars Bars Bars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This area has plenty of bars ranging in a very eclectic styles of music but the pleasure of not fighting the crowds as much comes with that price tag.

“Unique concept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Chengdu Eastern Music Park is not a main attraction in Chengdu, but a recommended place to hang out. The location is a bit far from city center.
The park is used to be factories area back in the days, now they still preserved the factories layout and make small shops, cafes, and restaurant (which is kinda unique concept).. A nice place to chill out from the hustle and bustle of the city. They also held some concerts and arts exhibition and performance in the park. I suggest that you visit the park on weekends, it can be very quiet on weekdays.

“More than a park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This is a museum actually with lots of amazing things to see. They display and introduce musical intrusments as well as the documents and organise performance in this park. The thing that impressed us most was the Machinery art right in front of it. A nice place to spend the morning and the steel lion in the main hall.
