YG Entertainment labelmates Big Bang and 2NE1 will be guesting at one of Japan’s biggest R&B and hip hop festivals, the “SPRINGROOVE!”
The festival recently released their stunning line-up of top hip hop artists, revealing that 2NE1 and Big Bang would also be making attendances.
The festival was first launched in 2006, so this is its fifth year running. Not only does the festival showcase local artists, but also artists from overseas. Since 2006, famous figures like Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Keyshia Cole, Akon, T-Pain, and TLC have performed at the prestigious events.
This year will be the first time Big Bang and 2NE1 perform shoulder to shoulder with LMFAO and David Guetta. Officials of the festival praised Big Bang as “one of the groups that showcased explosive movement in the worldwide music market” and 2NE1 as an “up and coming pop icon popular in not only Asia but all over the world.”
GD&TOP and 2NE1 were actually meant to perform last year with M-Flo but due to the natural disasters that occurred in the country, all plans were put on hold.
The “2012 SPRINGROOVE Festival” will be held on March 31st at the Kobe World Memorial Hall and on April 1st at the Chiba Makuhari Messe Hall.
