Hip Asian collective 88rising teams up with LiveMNL for the first time
88rising’s globally recognized Head In The Clouds Music & Arts Festival is set to debut in Manila, The Philippines December 9-10, 2022 at SM Festival Grounds Parañaque City.
With the LA flagship boasting over 60,000 attendees at the iconic Rose Bowl and having been dubbed "Asian Coachella", 88rising's Head in the Clouds Music & Arts Festival is the first festival of its kind devoted to celebrating Asian artists from around the world.
Selected by Fast Company as one of the top 10 most innovative live events companies in 2022, the first editions of Head In The Clouds Jakarta and Head In The Clouds Manila will feature top charting & trailblazing artists from around the world, unique and immersive live production plus culturally-inspired art & food experiences.
“We're incredibly proud to bring Head in the Clouds to Manila and the Philippines, a city and country so close to so many of our hearts and families. We're excited to build an unforgettable experience for our fans at Head in the Clouds Manila, because for us, that means everything" says 88rising CEO Sean Miyashiro.
Promoted by LiveMNL, the event and activation agency of Philippine media company KROMA Entertainment whose mission is to bring world-class talents to greater heights through multimedia mediums, the forthcoming collaboration of the two teams will be one to watch with homegrown creatives at the helm of creating a must-experience music event. LiveMNL head, Denise Seva shares that “Head In The Clouds Festival is a unique cultural celebration in itself, and not just another music event. LiveMNL believes that bringing HITC to Southeast Asia seals 88rising’s reputation as a top-notch curator and supporter of growing Asian youth influence worldwide.”
