Currently in its sophomore year, MetaMoon is produced by Live Nation and founded by Graceful Media to give Asian artists a consistent and prominent stage in the U.S. The festival serves as a platform for music fans to discover established and up-and-coming API artists from around the world. With MetaMoon Block Party and upcoming MetaMoon Presents tours, artists from Asia and music fans across the U.S. will be able to connect and share in ways they may not have had before.

“It was great to see Asian artists and music fans come together last year to celebrate our culture at the inaugural MetaMoon. This year, I'm excited to be back as a special guest performer,” said MC Jin, the first solo Asian American rapper signed to a major record label and host of last year's festival. “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,” said 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.”


MetaMoon Music Festival was founded in 2022 as a platform for Asian artists to have a consistent and prominent stage in the U.S., and for fans to connect with their favorite artist while also discovering new music. MetaMoon is an annual series of shows throughout the year that empowers Asian artists, connects them with fans, influencers and prominent brands with a confluence that celebrates their diverse culture.
