Hundreds of Asian artists and performers are gathering this weekend for the start of a 10-day global livestream festival, bringing together both established acts and up-and-coming stars.
Joy Ruckus Club 4 (“JRC4”) is being hailed as the largest global Asian music festival, with more than 250 artists of Asian descent performing across 14 stages around the world. The festival, running August 27 to September 5, kicks off with a two-day “K-Pop SuperFest,” with headliners including KARD, AleXa, pH-1, Everglow (pictured below), A.C.E, ONF, YOURS (pictured at bottom of article), Yubin and others. The event will include both native Korean acts and Asian Americans in K-pop, including San E and AleXa, who will be hosting the August 28 festivities.
Subsequent days include performers from Europe, Australia, Canada, the Philippines, Vietnam and others, with stages set up in their native countries, along with artists streaming live from stages in Seattle, and a joint DC/Maryland/Virginia setup. JRC4 concludes on September 5 with a day-long hip-hop concert hosted by Korean-American rapper Eddie Supa, LA-based producer Micah Street, the multi-ethnic (Filipino/Chinese/Spanish) multi-hyphenate C-Tru, and rising K-pop star, Sloanic.

This year’s event comes just a year after the inaugural Joy Ruckus Club festival, which launched with headliners such as Eric Nam, Jessi, The Boyz, Rain, Luna, Hyolyn, and Kevin Woo.
This global event marks the sixth virtual concert for the Joy Ruckus Club since August 2020, and is expected to be the largest Joy Ruckus Club festival to date.
