Following the hugely successful 2014 U.S. launch of The Modern Sky Festival in New York—as well as eight years of explosive growth across mainland China—Modern Sky’s namesake music festival expands to two U.S cities in 2015, bringing a wide-ranging musical and arts gathering to Central Park's Rumsey Playfield in NY on October 4th and Seattle's Mural Amphitheatre October 11th
Today Modern Sky announces the addition of YOKO ONO PLASTIC ONO BAND to the New York version of the festival.
In 1966, Yoko Ono created a conceptual band with four plastic stands with tape recorders in them instead of human musicians. Through the years, human members were added to Plastic Ono Band, each time a different lineup with Yoko Ono always at its core.
In 2009, Ono revived PLASTIC ONO BAND. Since then she has recorded 2 critically acclaimed albums, and performed a number of spectacular concerts worldwide.
Yoko’s current art and music exhibition at MoMA, Yoko Ono: One Woman Show: 1960-71,(through September 7) features a special PLASTIC ONO BAND music room.
On October 4, Ono will be joined in Central Park by some very special New York guests, performing songs from throughout her career.
States Ono: "I am so glad that I have been asked to do the Modern Sky Music Festival in Central Park. Central Park was where John, Sean and I always went for a walk. I still do. It’s the most lovely park in the world, I think."
The Modern Sky Festival was first produced in Beijing in 2007. Today, that event is one of 20+ large-scale music festivals, boasting a cumulative attendance of over 710,000, produced in cities throughout mainland China by Modern Sky Entertainment, China’s leading music entertainment company. In 2014 Modern Sky brought their unique vision to New York for the first time with a festival that featured Cat Power, Atomic Bomb! A Tribute To William Onyeabor, Liars, The Blood Brothers, Aimee Mann + Ted Leo, and Chinese stars Queen Sea Big Shark, Re-TROS and more.
