Summer Sonic 2018 welcomed Chinese hip hop group Higher Brothers, which turned out to be one of the highlights of the festival. Although the Asian music scene has been gaining more traction over the last few years, it hasn’t reached its peak – just yet. Chinese Football, who owe a lot to legendary emo band american football, is a post punk/indie rock band from Wuhan, China. The band is returning to Japan for its third tour of the country alongside Owen (frontman) from american football acting as support act for the final date of the tour. This is the very first time that American Football and Chinese Football will play together. For music lovers into Yo La Tengo, toe and Ghost and Vodka, this is an unmissable event.
