The festival organiser has previously noted that more foreign acts will be joining the two-day fest headlined Boy Pablo.
Boy Pablo – who will be playing on the first day of the event – was announced in the first wave of performers for the festival alongside Malaysian acts No Good and Lunadira. The Chilean-Norwegian indie-pop artist will be making stops in the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia on his 2022 Asia tour, which includes an appearance at Thailand’s Very Festival in November, alongside a line-up including Keshi, ADOY and pH-1.
Indonesian rapper Ramengvrl recently teamed up with Singapore’s Yung Raja for an “ode to Asia” titled ‘Ming Ling’. “There’s a lot of Asian references lyrically and Yung Raja brings so much spice to the track,” Ramengvrl said in a press statement, adding that “while the mission of “Asian representation” might seem like it’s been done before, there are still areas that have received less exposure than the others.”
The Sunbear Festival 2022 lineup so far is:
