In some of the most exciting news we’ve heard lately, Live Nation, and Twenty Eight Group, (a full-service Chinese entertainment company focusing on C-pop), have announced the launch of the world’s first multi-city contemporary Chinese music and arts festival, CCURRENTT.

Scheduled to take place in London, Los Angeles, and Sydney in October and November this year, CCURRENTT will transcend borders to unite music fans across the globe over a dynamic showcase of China’s best acts from its vibrant and energetic music and arts community.

The festival will feature an impressive spectrum of Chinese music genres, including C-Pop, Chinese Hip-hop and Chinese Rock, and will be headlined by some of China’s best talents, including Jolin Tsai, BEAUZ, Digi Ghetto (Mac Ova Seas, Mula Sakee, Thomeboydontkill), DXX, GALI, and The Life Journey.

The festival is the brainchild of Jim Wong, Managing Director of Twenty Eight Group and Live Nation Electronic Asia and will first stop at London’s OVO Arena Wembley, before heading to Los Angeles’ The Torch and wrapping up at Sydney Showground in Olympic Park.
