Head In The Clouds Festival 2021 Recap
This past weekend the Rose Bowl hosted Head In the Clouds Festival. It was a great location for this festival, which featured multiple genres of music, art, food, and pop-up experiences.
This year’s lineup included all genres of music; ranging from EDM to hip hop to pop stars and everything in between. There was something for everyone to enjoy listening to. Some artists included Illenium, Rich Brian, Joji, Beabadoobee, Japanese Breakfast, Umi, Niki, and many others.
Stages & Production
There were two stages; the 88 Stage and the Double Happiness Stage. The 88 Stage had a fluffy cloud on the top middle that would make different faces depending on the artist performing at that time. It would smile or sometimes be crying or yelling. It was a nice touch for the main stage.
Each stage catered to a wide variety of music. They were close to one another, but not too close that the sound bled over.
The sound system at both stages sounded great. The music was crisp and clean sounding. The set times were scheduled in a way that had little overlap between artists. That meant you could see all the artists without worrying about scheduling conflicts
Walking throughout the venue were many restaurants, food trucks, and pop-up food stands. There was something for everyone to enjoy. Panda Express was even there. If you wanted better quality food Bang Bang Noodles was making fresh noodles on site.
Covid Safety Precautions
When you first arrived there was a line was to check for your vaccination card, as you are required to be fully vaccinated or have a negative Covid test 72 hours prior to this event.
This was a great event to welcome back live music from Asian artists. We are definitely coming back in the future and are excited to see what upcoming events are being put on by Head In The Clouds.
