Korean reggae band Windy City, headed by Kim Ban-jang, has been invited to perform at the South by Southwest festival in the US. The band is slated to perform at the Flamingo Cantina in Austin, Texas, marking the third year the band will participate in the annual event.
Other Korea-based artists who will take part include Glen Check, Luna Lee, Neon Bunny and XXX. The Korea Creative Content Agency has also revealed the lineup for its “K-Pop Night Out,” co-hosted with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, which will take place at SXSW.
Girl group Red Velvet, rappers Tiger JK and Yoon Mi-rae will perform with Hyolyn of girl group Sistar, bands No Brain and Galaxy Express and singer Big Phony at the K-pop showcase.
It was confirmed last month that Tiger JK and Yoon, a couple in the Korean hip-hop scene, will take part in the event.
The five-member Red Velvet released its fourth mini album, “Rookie,” earlier this month.
According to KOCCA, the K-pop event will also be held at the Great Escape slated for May in Brighton, England, which will feature four K-pop groups.
SXSW is an annual festival showcasing film, interactive media, music and conferences that takes place in Austin. This year’s event will be held from March 10 to 19.
