'We want to plant the flag that this is the definitive Asian-music festival in the world,' says 88rising founder Sean Miyashiro.
88rising's second-annual Head in the Clouds festival is adding a slew of globally adored names in the second artist lineup reveal for their second-annual, Asian-music festival.
Billboard can exclusively reveal that Jackson Wang, iKON, DPR Live and Dumbfoundead are all joining the fest when it hits Los Angeles in mid-August. The four acts join the previously announced Joji, Higher Brothers, Rich Brian, NIKI and August 08 -- all on 88rising's artist roster -- who were revealed in the first lineup wave.
While Wang has performed multiple times stateside with his K-pop boy band GOT7, Head in the Clouds 2019 will mark his first-ever performance as a solo artist. "I've been waiting so long to come to America and perform for all my fans here," Wang says in a statement to Billboard. "When 88rising asked if I wanted to do my first ever solo show at Head in the Clouds, I just couldn't say no -- it just feels right and I’m ready to give all my fans a show they'll never forget."
