Are you ready, Brooklyn? Prepare yourselves for a night to remember on November 26, 2022, when New York City’s Barclays Center will host the inaugural MetaMoon Music Festival — a celebration bridging the cultures of Asia and America.

Hosted by Chinese-American rapper and comedian MC Jin, the festival will feature an array of Asian American and Asian artists and be headlined by wildly-popular former Exo member Lay Zhang.

Other high-profile participants will include Taiwanese musician 9m88, Chinese-American singer Karencici, and Chinese singer, dancer, and rapper Sury.

Many participating artists will be performing in the United States for the first time.


Co-hosted by Hong Kong-based advertising agency Graceful Media and Live Nation, the one-day event promises to be an epic celebration of Asian talent from the realms of pop culture and entertainment.

Grace Chen, the founder of Graceful Media and creator of MetaMoon, has acknowledged the power of pop culture and the ways it can bridge communities — particularly during such difficult and polarizing times.

“Now more than ever, music is truly a global language, and talent, no matter where they come from, will resonate with fans across cultures if given the opportunity to share their passion and creativity,” said Chen in a press release. “The mission of MetaMoon Music Festival is to give [these] artists the ability to shine from a prominent stage.”

According to Laurie Jacoby, the executive vice president and chief entertainment officer at Barclays Center’s parent company, BSE Global, the music festival is also intended to celebrate the incredible diversity and the exciting culture of ‘The Big Apple.’

So, RADII readers, save the date for Saturday, November 26, and be sure to snap up your tickets fast — before they sell out!
