Visas: Free for Singaporean, Japanese and Brunei(!?) passport holders, otherwise you will have to arrange one beforehand (please double-check this with your embassy; rules change often and without warning). There is also a loophole for a 72-hour visa for foreigners if you’re transiting through Shanghai–meaning that you must have a ticket going from home -> SH -> another country. More detailed research is here but all information provided on this site this is unofficial so please do your own research before deciding what course to take with your visa.
Hotels: Check out tourney hotels here. It’s also possible to camp out on the fields for free (but please email ahead). Buses will take players from the tourney hotels to the fields.
Party: On the field, some booze will be provided Sat night, lots more will flow on Sunday afternoon. Stay tuned for party theme.
