Colombo Night Races Map.
I normally avoid such things, but this weekend should be cool. There’s the Electric Peacock Festival OR Avicii on Friday and the Colombo Night Races on Saturday. The preceding links all go to ticket sales. The gigs are like Rs. 2,000 apiece but you can get race tickets for Rs. 250.
Drove around Galle Face and they’ve sandbagged and tired the curves for the races. That should be interesting. I’m going to Peacock to see Chicane and Basement Jaxx, though I’ve been listening to Avicii. They’re having it at the Galle Buck Lighthouse (beyond Ceylon Continental) which is an awesome venue. I hear they’re 3D mapping the World Trade Center or other such madness. It’s certainly ambitious, and I’m all for retaking the city center.
Both events are young people getting permits and stuff through the President’s sons, which is actually fine by me. Fun is what the city needs, and God knows we’ve waited for it.
