Head in the Clouds festival is headed back to New York. For its second year, the music and arts festival will see headlining performances from Joji, (G)I-DLE, BIBI and ILLENIUM B2B DABIN.
Head in the Clouds New York, put on by music and media company 88rising and concert promoter The Bowery Presents, will return to Forest Hills Stadium in Queens from May 11-12. The two-day festival will see additional sets from Balming Tiger, SPENCE LEE, Deb Never, Juliet Ivy, Young Posse, Wave to Earth, Wang OK, Awich, eyedress, dhruv, ATARASHII GAKKO!, thuy, Warren Hue, Lyn Lapid and Masiwei.
Producers promise to once again transform the stadium “into a beacon of Asian-centric music, art, and cuisine.” The event has renewed its partnership with non-profit organization Heart of Dinner, an organization directly addressing food insecurity, social isolation, and loneliness among Asian American older adults living in under-resourced communities. The festival will be donating a portion of ticket sales to Heart of Dinner and work with them on activating on-site.
The New York edition of the festival is the second iteration in North America after the event’s Los Angeles festival in partnership with Coachella promoter Goldenvoice. Head in the Clouds has also hosted festivals in Jakarta, Manila and China in recent years.
In 2023, the inaugural Head in the Clouds New York Music & Arts Festival marked a homecoming of sorts for 88rising, which was founded in New York City back in 2015. The New York debut welcomed NIKI, Rich Brian, Beabadoobee and more.
