Yaogun refers to Chinese rock, which was born nearly 30 years ago when "The Father of Chinese Rock" Cui Jian performed "Nothing to My Name" at the Concert of Year of International Peace at Beijing Worker's Stadium. That performance not only propelled the rocker to fame, but would also launch a cultural movement the likes of which China had never seen before. In a mere three decades, Yaogun is at the center of China's major music festivals, with a national live touring circuit incorporating over two dozen cities and over 15 livehouses in Beijing alone, that has drawn a growing list of musicians and bands that have attracted a legion of millions of new fans. Today, Chinese Rock is a growing force to reckon with, attracting the attention of brands, TV shows and major internet companies. But it is important to understand its voyage, how a cultural movement developed from ground up, the people that shaped, the sounds that pushed it forward, despite innumerable challenges... basically, how Yaogun beat all the odds to become China's music grassroots movement.
