The former punk rocker Song Yuhze formed Dawanggang after his travels in western China. The ensemble is rich in insight and ideas and has its musical foundation in the wailing tones of Chinese folk music. Yuhze combines these notes with something uniquely western – and quite disturbing. The narratives as well as the vast expanses of the countryside of the gargantuan nation is present in the music, but the experimenting, almost avant-garde, approach to the traditional sound is an equal mix between Scott Walker and The Beijing Opera.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
