Asia Rising Together attracted 5 million viewers and was recognised with a Gold Shorty Award
The live stream follows the success of the group’s 2021 virtual event Asia Rising Together which attracted 5 million viewers and was recognised with a Gold Shorty Award.
The year before, 88rising held the Asia Rising Forever livestream which became the #1 trending topic on both YouTube and Twitter and drew 8.5 million viewers.
It was recently announced that 88rising will be presenting Head in the Clouds Forever at this year’s Coachella in what has been touted as “a historic, live experience culmination of what 88rising represents”.
88rising worked with Coachella promoter Goldenvoice last November to produce the group’s LA-based music festival, Head in the Clouds.
