YACHT isn't just music, it's a way of life. For anyone at Clockenflap 2009, you'll know first hand what that means, as the duo of Jonas Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans took to the main stage and stole the show with their irresistibly infectious dance-friendly anthems and crowd reparte. May 15th 2013 marks their welcome return to the territory, and this time we've got their full band along for the ride, adding a whole new dimension of brilliance to proceedings.

Having toured with everyone from label mates LCD Soundsystem to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend and Dirty Projectors; and remixing the likes of: Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon, Phoenix, Ratatat, Neon Indian and many others, YACHT ride the crest of the musical wave where the very edge meets an all-engaging dance party.

A Band, Belief System, and Business, YACHT make it abundantly clear that all people are welcome to become members of YACHT. It's all about connection and shared experience. So come join team YACHT as they triumphantly return to Hong Kong on May 15th at Grappa's Cellar for their first ever full band show. It is an irresistible live experience not to be missed. Get your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
