All my U.S. East Coasters, you don’t wanna miss this!
The Modern Sky Festival is the biggest in China, and it’s finally coming stateside! If you’re in the New York area I urge you to come out because seeing Chinese bands play in the U.S. is such a rare opportunity. The Rock scene there is still fresh and always growing- we’re literally witnessing the beginnings of a very powerful music movement! FEV will see you there and we’re hyped!

The Music of William Onyeabor (featuring an all-star lineup of musicians), Cat Power, The Blood Brothers (original lineup, reuniting for the first time in 8 years), Stars, Liars, The Both (Aimee Mann & Ted Leo), Lenka + Chinese artists Zhang Xuan, Re-TROS (Rebuilding The Rights of Statues), Queen Sea Big Shark, Tongue, Second Hand Rose, Omnipotent Youth Society and more.
The Modern Sky Festival was first produced in Beijing in 2007. Today, the Modern Sky Festival is one of 20+ large-scale music festivals produced in cities throughout mainland China by Modern Sky Entertainment, China’s leading music entertainment company.
Michael LoJudice, General Manager of Modern Sky Intl, comments “We’re excited to bring the festival to the U.S. When I first started at Modern Sky in 2006 we were a struggling record label working out of a cramped office on the west side of Beijing. Now Modern Sky is a music entertainment powerhouse in China. The 2007 Beijing Festival, our first, was a major turning point for the company – the Yeah Yeah Yeahs headlined and the ascendant independent music scene in Beijing was very supportive. Amazing that a short 8 years later we’re producing the festival in New York’s Central Park.”
