The pioneering and internationally renowned music and media company amplifying Asian talent and culture – has wrapped its one-of-a-kind “88rising Futures” performance in Coachella’s Mojave Tent. The 63-minute ensemble performance marked 88rising’s tremendous return to Coachella after its historic Head In The Clouds Forever set in 2022.

Spotlighting the incredible artistry emerging from China, Japan, South Korea, the “88rising Futures” performance presented a new crop of electrifying Asian artists, showcased unexpected collaborations, and premiered new music on-stage. Festival goers were also treated to surprise appearances from marquee 88rising talent – the Chinese superstar Jackson Wang (in his third Coachella appearance in a row) and chart-topping Korean singer BIBI.

Unexpected on-stage collaborations and appearances were the theme of the night, starting with YOASOBI & ATARASHII GAKKO’s euphoric performance of the hit song “Idol.” Japanese hip-hop royalty graced the stage throughout Awich’s electrifying set, with special guests JP THE WAVYNENELANAMaRI, and YURIYAN RETRIEVER. The distinctly curated lineup is 88rising’s latest instance of globalizing Asian talent by exporting artists from their home countries onto U.S. and other international stages.
