Music streaming platform Spotify will hold the third edition of its live concert series, Spotify on Stage, at JIExpo Kemayoran in Central Jakarta on October 4. Headlining the show will be none other than Jakarta’s very own Rich Brian.
Rich Brian, the Indonesian rapper who’s now based in the US, is leading the festival’s lineup along with K-pop girl group (G)I-DLE and boyband ATEEZ.
This concert will be a homecoming performance of sorts for the the 20-year-old rapper, who last performed in the capital back in 2016 and 2017 under his former controversial stage name, Rich Chigga. In a statement, Spotify said Rich Brian — real name Brian Imanuel Soewarno — is the most-streamed hip-hop artist in Indonesia, making him one of the biggest international acts hailing from Asia.
Brian previously partnered with Spotify for an interactive showcase in Jakarta to commemorate the launch of his new album The Sailor, which features hits such as Kids, Drive Safe, and 100 Degrees. He’s currently on a world tour, also named The Sailor, that’s coming to numerous cities across the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Local musicians Arsy Widianto, Brisia Jodie, Marion Jola, and RIzky Febian will also perform on the Spotify stage. All of the concert’s performers are said to have a combined 15 million monthly listeners on the platform.
