Boutique Hong Kong events company Omni aims to create experiences that bring people together through the power of music - their new collab with Central lifestyle venue Carbon is the latest manifestation of that ambition.
The Omni x Carbon sessions will see the rooftop of the sleek venue on the top floor of the H Code complex at the top of Pottinger Street transformed into an outdoor day club for a throwdown that extends from the afternoon into the evening, helping you end your Saturday night on a truly high note.
A rotating roster of top Hong Kong underground DJs will be gracing the decks at the events, all focusing on the deeper side of electronic dance music. Our DJs will be broadcasting positive vibes from the 2,500-square-foot Carbon rooftop all over the Hong Kong cityscape that unfolds around this new complex in the historic beating heart of the city.
The Omni x Carbon events make their debut on Saturday October 22 and we are going all out with the DJ lineup, with rising local DJ/producer Xiaolin, David from the legendary Hong Kong trio Small & Tall, the legendary Arthur Yeti of the Yeti Out posse, and downtempo DJ Chingyi returning from her appearance at Omni presents Glade.
Early bird and advance tickets are both extremely limited, and only limited entry will be available on the door. Please follow all current government coronavirus restrictions such as showing proof of vaccination upon entry along with a photo of a negative RAT test taken that day.
About the artist: Dong Kingman (1911-2000) was a Chinese-American artist and watercolour master. Born in California, Kingman travelled back to his ancestral home of Hong Kong at the age of five and excelled at calligraphy and watercolour painting. His breakthrough came in 1936 with a solo exhibition at the San Francisco Art Association, but to us Kingman is best remembered for his dreamlike watercolours of Hong Kong commissioned by the colonial government to promote Hong Kong in the 1970s (such as this ‘70s watercolour of Carbon’s location on Pottinger Street). His work is represented in the permanent collections of 50 museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum and Museum of Modern Art.
