This event has now passed.

New York indie-rockers Beach Fossils are undertaking their first China tour, touting their 2017 album Somersault as they do so. This appearance in Beijing won't be their first on these shores however, the band played at the 2015 Echo Park (now Concrete & Grass) Festival. The group have undergone a number of line-up changes since forming in 2009, with Zachary Cole Smith departing to form DIIV (another act to have played at Concrete & Grass) and drummer Tommy Gardner moving to Shanghai last year.

Somersault, which features guest appearances from Slowdive's Rachel Goswell and Cities Aviv, was described as 'an acrobatic leap' for the band by Pitchfork, with orchestration and powerful rhythm sections replacing their previous dream-pop sound and resulting in 'some of [co-founder Dustin Payseur's] best songs to date'.
