88RISING - FEAT. RICH BRIAN & AUGUST 08 (ONLY AUS SHOWS)US
Something a little different and extremely cool for this year’s festival comes in the form of Asian hip-hop collective 88rising. Established as a label with the intention of championing Asian artists across America and Europe, they have recently crystallised and dropped their debut album Head In The Clouds – a release that features their entire roster. Bringing the whole thing together for the stage, 88rising will be showcasing (among others) the considerable talents of Rich Brian, an 18-year-old Chinese Indonesian prodigy who managed to teach himself English just by listening to popular hip-hop.
