Pelle Carlberg

Born in Sweden in 1969, singer-songwriter Pelle Carlberg pleases crowds with his feel-good indie tunes. Relying very little on artificial editing, Carlberg is all about good old-fashioned guitar and vocals. From playing his very first official concert in Uppsala to successfully recording three solo studio albums, Carlberg has truly come a long way in his music career and will be bringing his talents to China.

Ataraxia

Founded in the late 1980s, Italian neoclassical band Ataraxia will be spreading their music across Asia via their Purity Movement tour. Other than being known to incorporate the dark wave-style into their work, Ataxaria has also experimented with the combination of modern technology and archaic instrumentation. Accessorized with haunting vocals in exotic ancient languages, the band produces a sound that is truly one of a kind. They have described their style as an intriguing mix “between sacred and profane, ethereal and neo-classical, contemporary and early music.”

Daylight

Spanish punk band Daylight rose to fame after releasing their second album, 2 Cool 4 School, in 2011, which was praised as “the most exciting pop punk album in Europe” by critics. In the summer of 2012, the band made their debut tour in 17 cities in China, receiving a warm welcome by mainland punk lovers. Their second China tour starts this summer.
