This year, I’m excited to be back as a special guest performer,” said MC Jin in a press statement. “I’ve always believed music is the perfect bridge between different cultures and backgrounds. More than ever, Asian representation on stage has shown great influence and importance in a connected world.”
“MetaMoon was born in NYC last year with a talented lineup supported by their incredible fans and followers of Asian pop culture. We are so excited to be expanding upon that this year with MetaMoon Block Party,” added Grace Chen, founder of MetaMoon. “We started MetaMoon with the belief that music is a universal language that can foster stronger understanding between cultures. Bringing the festival back in this new format and being able to tour it next year allows us to continue our mission of providing a platform for creating a genuine connection between Asian artists and global music fans.”
