We’re getting closer to the Head In The Clouds music and arts festival in Jakarta — which will be held on Mar. 7 by American label 88rising at JIExpo Kemayoran — and with less than two weeks to go, the organizers yesterday announced the last batch of Indonesian and international performers to complete the festival’s lineup.
As expected, Stephanie Poetri — the Indonesian singer behind the viral hit I Love You 3000 — will be performing at the festival along with notable international acts including K-pop singer Chungha (who collaborated with Rich Brian on a single titled These Nights), Thai singer-songwriter Phum Viphurit, South Korean singer-songwriter Yerin Baek, American singer-songwriter Zhu, and Korean-American rapper Dumbfoundead, among others.
Other Indonesian artists, including indie pop band Reality Club, pop/R&B/hip hop trio RAN, DJ Dipha Barus and friends, three-piece all-girl metal band Voice of Baceprot, and indie rock band Elephant Kind are also set to perform at Head In The Clouds’ first international expansion, following the original LA edition which was held in August last year.
Prior to this latest announcement, the lineup had already boasted US-based hometown heroes in rapper Rich Brian and R&B singer/songwriter NIKI. Other performers included in the first phase of headliners were their label mates, former internet personality-turned R&B and trip-hop Japanese singer Joji and American singer-songwriter August 08.
It appears that Chinese rap quartet Higher Brothers had to pull out, however, due to the travel ban imposed by Indonesia on flights from and to Mainland China amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Head in the Clouds LA was hailed as the “Asian Coachella” for featuring 88rising’s mostly Asian acts, and the Jakarta edition is likely to follow the same format.
More information regarding the festival is available on the official website of Head in the Clouds Indonesia. Tickets are available online on Blibli, starting from IDR1,4 million (US$100) for the regular general admission. If you’re from outside Indonesia and want to go to the festival, click here.
