This weekend saw 88rising’s first New York-based edition of their annual Head In The Clouds Festival arrive at Forest Hills Stadium. The festival highlights and celebrates Asian talent, just in time for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, while also benefiting Heart Of Dinner – a nonprofit that works to fight food insecurity experienced by Asian American elderly.

Day 1 of the festival featured rainy weather, but it still brought out plenty of smiling fans and artists, featuring headlining performances by Rich Brian, ITZY, and Beabadoobee.

Our photographer Emily Tan was there to capture all of the Day 1 action. You can find her photos of all the performances she caught posted in the gallery below.
