Second Hand Rose 二手玫瑰
Moxizishi X Jikehabu X 3He 莫西子诗X吉克哈布
Ruby Fatale 鹿比 ∞ 吠陀
2016 Taiwan Golden Indie Music Award Winner – Best Electronic Album
Drenched in the unique atmosphere of stoner/doom/glitch music and violent aesthetics, Ruby grabs ideas from literature, geometric figures, and her own experiences. She likes to tell a story when she performs with an industrial and cold sound, that creates an anxious atmosphere with incidental beautiful instrumental sounds. Ruby always arranges her sets to dramatically to lead audiences through both contrasts within dynamic/static situations and ancient/modern ages.
FAZI (formerly The Fuzz) is a Chinese post-punk indie rock band formed in Xi’an in 2010. Their music brims with abundant vitality, moves its audience from the inside, stirring anger in their calm. On stage they’re like a perpetual motion machine, relentlessly generating captivating noise. Their music points directly to your heart, simply but powerfully.
MTA Festival creatively fuses diverse and radical emerging music, technology and art at their events. From 2016 to 2017, more than 80,000 people attended their events at Sky Desert, a magical, famous landscape located in Northeast Beijing, China.
Since it’s beginning, MTA has been working towards an international vision of becoming a recognized brand beyond China’s music marketplace. Director of Programming Warren Chien brings his experience, along with Festival Founder Hongjie Li (aka CheiZak) to that effort, from their choice in line-ups and content programming, to launching their Sky Desert series. The first-ever MTA LA will take place in Pasadena, CA in the fall of 2019.
The newly launched Chinese music festival, MTA Festival, is stepping into the league of SXSW and Coachella, making a unique Chinese cultural symbol and emerging global music festival brand under the desert stars 90km from Beijing at Sky Desert. The Festival is a collection of trending music, the experience of emerging technology, multimedia art performances, installation art exhibitions and much more. With their amazing spirit, artists will transform the desert into a new galaxy, creating a dreamy experience of antigravity, surrounded by nine “planets”.
