Billie Eilish, Post Malone and A$AP Rocky will headline New York’s 2021 Governors Ball festival, with Megan Thee Stallion and J Balvin also slated to perform, organisers announced. The music festival normally held in late spring is set for September 24 to 26, with organisers hopeful widespread vaccinations will allow for festival-scale live performances.

Carlyle & Co.: Everything we know so far about Rosewood’s private members’ club

The Carlyle hotel-inspired bolthole — slated to open on the uppermost floors of Rosewood Hong Kong later this year — will offer a blueprint for the eponymous group’s vision of “a new kind of international members’ club”. We venture north of the harbour to discover just what that entails. Hitherto, the Hong Kong ecosystem of private members’ clubs has been split broadly between two camps: at one end, you have venerable institutions catered to the needs of the city’s professionals (the FCC) and those who surround them (the KCC); at the other, a burgeoning array of social haunts meant to profit...

Want to spruce up your home with art? Carré d’artistes has just the thing

If Instagram were a place, it would probably look like Carré d’artistes. At the art gallery, which has just opened on the fourth floor of Paragon, artworks are offered in fixed, mostly square sizes, much like on an Instagram grid. The largest is over a metre wide, enough to make a statement on a wall in your home. The smallest would fit nicely on your bedside table. For the most part, though, the artworks are comparable to vinyl record sleeves. In fact, you’ll have to do a little crate digging to look at them. Yes, you read that right: at Carré d’artistes, the “Please Do Not Touch The Art”...

Will taking the plane for a business trip soon become a thing of the past? The need for business flights, which are increasingly criticised for their negative environmental impact, is now being re-evaluated. At the same time the advent of widespread video-conferencing during the health crisis has led to the adoption of new habits. It appears that many business travellers are more than willing to give up flying. In the wake of stormy debates on March 29 and April 17, the French parliament finally voted to outlaw domestic flights of less than two and a half hours in cases where a direct train...

The Six: Documentary tells ‘unknown’ story of Titanic’s Chinese survivors

A new documentary film has revealed the “completely unknown” story of six Chinese men who survived the sinking of the Titanic and adds a new chapter to the history of the world’s most famous ship. With Oscar-winning director James Cameron as executive producer, The Six has earned glowing reviews in China and at one point trended on the country’s Twitter-like Weibo after its release on Friday.
