Ordos World Music Carnival

Ordos World Music Carnival

As over 100 musical acts from a dozen countries played every weekend for 3 weeks (7/18 to 8/3), over 100,000 concert goers stood under the blue sky and starry nights on grassland and through Mongolian rain storms to immerse themselves in this music carnival of historical proportions. Musicians from the U.S., Russia, France, Indonesia, Austria, Malaysia, Mongolia and many more brought a taste of their country to the fest while Chinese folk, pop, punk, metal, DJ and dance acts set the grassland on fire (not literally) night after night.

CAMAC brought Domonique Jackson, Jeremy Thurber, Lavender Diamond and Emily Wells to OWMC

As the hottest performing new generation Jackson from the Jackson family, Domonique is hard at work preparing for the release of his first EP.  It’s one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2015. With Jackson’s heavy influences from artists like Zedd, Justin Timberlake and Elton John, along with a world class production team, he is able to craft a unique sound of his own: soulful electro-pop music you can dance to!

Jeremy is a prolific songwriter, singer, dancer and charismatic live performer. He has opened for teen idols like Jennifer Hudson and Jake Miller, and has written for many top Asian artists. He’s recently had top 40 radio success writing for international and domestic acts such as Sarah DeBono “Oasis”, The Common Kings “Thunder & Lightning”, and most recent and notable Jake Miller”Collide”. He’s also penned international platinum selling songs like TVXQ’s “Champion” off their latest album TREE (No.1 in many countries).

Since OWMC and KCon, Jeremy has also done an interview and a live acoustic set on the Lance Bass show and is now confirmed to open for Midnight Red at the Social Slam Awards!

Lavender Diamond’s performance started in pouring rain and ended in screaming applause. For three times the crowd mysteriously disappeared into the downpour and came back when the water became bearable (where do you hide where there’s no structure in sight anyways?). Though the band did have to start in the rain, a couple songs into the set the rain tapered off, then stage lights came on, then the jumbo tron, then full back wall lights. The crowd resurfaced from the darkness and gathered around the stage and found themselves intoxicated in Becky’s signature angelic voice. It was MAGICAL!
