In 2021, 88rising executive produced and curated the soundtrack to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – Marvel Studios’ first Asian-American superhero.

Very Special Guest
Time for take 2! Coachella has been postponed cancelled the last couple years because of the pandemic, but third time’s the charm. The music and arts festival is set for 2 weekends in April starting April 15 until April 24. So it’s time to celebrate in the desert once again because the lineup is good
With a line up that accommodates all music genres, there’s something for everyone. The headliners include Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and Ye aka Kanye West. While my inner directioner is screaming, there’s so many artists to look forward to like Filipino-Brit beabadoobee, Manila based singer Eyedress, and 88Rising artists.
beabadoobee who took TikTok/radio by storm with the remix “death bed (coffee for your head)” with Powfu for her track “Coffee.” She’s been blazing in the indie-pop scene blazing her own path with the dreamy vocals and recently going on a US Tour. We can’t wait to catch her on stage.
You may not be familiar with Eyedress, but Idris Vicuña is making a mark in the Philippines with his shoegaze and bedroom pop sound. Born and raised in the Philippines, Eyedress moved to the U.S. where he was introduced to punk music, which influenced his current vibe. He’s come a long way from making beats on his laptop to now performing at the biggest festival.
To top it off, catch 88Rising artists throughout the festival. Part of the lineup are Rich Brian, Niki, Joji, and Japanese Breakfast so it’s going to be a good time! It’s about time we get to see Asian artists take the stage and share their music at the most popular festival. They’ll be taking the stage at the Head in the Clouds Forever along with beabadoobee and Eyedress.
Make sure to grab your tickets as presale for Weekend 2 starts Friday, 1/14 at 10am PT, but you’ll have to register first at Coachella.com.
