    October 2-4 Featuring 80+ artists from around the world performing on four stages, China's biggest music event - the Modern Sky Festival - will be held in Beijing Haidian Park from October 2-4. This year's class of international artists sets a new standard for Chinese music festivals. Former Suede front man Brett Anderson returns to Beijing to perform songs new and old; American indie stalwarts Blonde Redhead make their first trip to China; two of the most talked about new bands in the UK and America, The Big Pink and Free Energy, are set to perform; Glasgow's indie pop darlings Camera Obscura play October 2; the Taiwanese music scene will be represented well by Zhangxuan, Joanna Wang, Go Chic, 88 Guava Seed, and MATZKA & 13BAND; and Latvia's top rock band BrainStorm, who have previously toured with REM and The Rolling Stones, and French bands Housse De Racket and P.U.S.S. round out the international artists lineup. The Modern Sky Festival 2010 features the strongest contingent of Chinese bands performing in one place in recent memory. The Mainland's Top Bands: Xie Tianxiao, New Pants, Re-TROS, Queensea Big Shark, Second-Hand Rose, Sound Fragment, Distorted Machine, Hedgehog, SUBS, Dragon Road, Oxygen Cans, Tours, Flight Plans, AV Okubo, Hua Lun, and many others are all set to perform! Re-TROS, Queensea Big Shark, and Hedgehog will all be performing new material from upcoming albums, while New Pants performs their first Modern Sky-produced festival after pulling out of the Strawberry Festival earlier this year. The Old Guard: Legendary bands Induced Community, CHENJIN and Red Forces, Evening News, Self-Education, Mr. Zhou, and Hang On The Box will all be performing their classic hits from the 80's and 90's. The 80's/90's rock revival begins at the Modern Sky Festival 2010! The Next Generation: The Modern Sky Festival 2010 will provide opportunities for new bands to perform in front of a large audience. Street Killing Strange Animals, GLGB, Day and Night Selling Ice, Crazy Doctor, Ducks Beat Geese, Wanderlust, Pairs, MIK, Liang Xiaoxue - see the best of China's new class performing on the Badhead Stage at the Modern Sky Festival 2010!

    Modern Sky has a lot of redeeming to do after botching the Strawberry Festival in May and failing to supply beer at the 2009 festival. I notice the lineup is mostly the usual suspects, but I'd probably go if I was there. XTX, SUBS, Second Hand Rose and Hedgehog are always worth seeing.
