Continuing its rise since 2015, 88Rising prevails as a globally respected movement curating the finest Asian culture and artistry. Returning to Los Angeles State Historic Park, 88Rising’s second annual Head In The Clouds Festival will take place on August 17th. Known for their diversified Asian-centric acts, the lineup will feature artists like Rich Brian, Joji, Dumbfounded, Higher Brothers, Jackson Wang, August 08, and more. In addition, this year’s festival will showcase its first-ever electronic music stage that will house acts like K?D, Josh Pan, Manila Killa, Qrion, and more.

Rising is the right word to use when it comes to this 88Rising’s ethos and movement. 88Rising prevails in its mission to cultivate underrepresented artists, introducing them to the mainstream limelight. CEO and founder, Sean Miyashiro who’s also a Korean-Japanese American, is the mastermind behind 88Rising who strives to push Asian-music into the next big thing.

“We want to plant the flag that this is the definitive Asian-music festival in the world.”

Sean Miyashiro to Billboard

This year’s festival will feature food vendors from Southern California’s biggest Asian food festival, 626 Night Market. Head In The Clouds will celebrate a single-day, all-ages event at the Los Angeles State Historic Park. Praised by Billboard as “The Asian Hip-Hop Festival You Need To Know,” Head In The Clouds has made a groundbreaking impact since its first inaugural show in 2018. With VIP tickets already sold out months before the event, Limited GA tickets are still available on www.88rising.com.
