If you love Asian music, boy, do we have a festival for you! Graceful Media is hosting its first-ever festival event, MetaMoon Festival, at Barclays Center in New York next week. In celebration of the event, we got the scoop from Grace Chen, the founder of Graceful Media herself!
What Is MetaMoon?
Now you might be asking, what is MetaMoon Festival? MetaMoon is a celebration of Asian music and culture, and it is happening over Thanksgiving weekend in Brooklyn. Grace Chen put it best: “We wanted to create a platform where fans can discover new Asian artists and Asian music.” We think this will be the perfect place to find new artists to love.
The festival is being headlined by Lay Zhang from EXO, but it also has incredible artists coming over to the US to perform for the very first time. You can be one of the first people to see them debut in the US, and you’ll have bragging rights forever! This festival is not just about KPOP but is a celebration of all forms of Asian music and pop culture. Which is right up our alley! The lineup was curated specifically to showcase the incredible music coming from all genres of Asian music. So bring your friends, and you’ll likely all come away with a new favorite artist.
Not only are you getting an incredible curated lineup of Asian music, but you can also experience the Asian market that MetaMoon has put together. MetaMoon Festival is all about the community, which is why securing Barclays Center in Brooklyn was so important to them. Brooklyn is special, and so are the people there. MetaMoon is not only there to showcase some amazing Asian talent but also to bring the community together.
What we’re trying to build out is very much about being part of the neighborhood, being part of the community, and then finding ways to get everybody involved in their own way.

To tie in the community, the festival also has a food crawl happening up until the day of the festival, and for each eatery you visit, you will get a stamp. Once you have the entire stamp card stamped, bring it to the festival with your ticket stub, and you’ll receive a prize! What an incredible way to get more people to show their support for local businesses!
Will you be attending MetaMoon Festival on November 26? Make sure you snag tickets here! You might just see us there in the crowd rocking out to Tyson Yoshi. 😉
