88Rising Music & Arts Festival at Los Angeles State Historic Park

This year marks the very first ever 88Rising Music Festival: “Head in the Clouds”. With an attendance of 2,500 or so, 88Rising does not match up with the big dogs such as Coachella or Lollapalooza whose attendance ranges in the hundreds of thousands; but this is not to say that it was not filled with as much talent and passion. More importantly, this is the very first Asian-American music festival in North America EVER.
