 (CHINA DAILY/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - With only one month to go until this year's Beijing Burger Festival, the 40 vendors secured to feed the city are sourcing their finest beef, tomatoes, lettuce and buns to keep food lovers full for a long time.

This year's rock 'n' roll-themed event will take place in the warren-like Galaxy Soho on the weekend of June 16 and 17.

There will be entertainment galore, including high-energy bands, DJs and performers to keep the crowd going throughout the weekend. This will include a line-up of Beijing's finest rockers, a rock 'n' roll karaoke contest and even a kids' area for youngsters.

Last year's event attracted close to 20,000 hungry burger fans. This year, the organisers are hoping to outdo themselves by holding the biggest festival the city has ever seen, in honour of that glorious combination of meat and bun.

Early-bird tickets for the festival are now available at 17 yuan (S$3.60). They will also be on sale at the door for 30 yuan.

Advance tickets come with a limited-edition gift. This time around, it is an ultra-chic and multi-purpose bandana - great for wiping away sweat, ketchup and tears of joy while feasting on some of the best burgers Beijing has to offer.
