The 4th annual KPOP Night Out at SXSW has been officially announced. This year’s lineup was anticipated particularly after last year’s showcase that featured Crayon Pop, Hitchhiker and Epik High. This year’s lineup includes MAMAMOO, Dean and Zion.T with The Session.
MAMAMOO was announced late last year as a SXSW artist alongside Illionaire Records. MAMAMOO are a 4-member girl group whose vocal talents have brought them much attention worldwide. Their song “Piano Man” reached 41 on Gaon’s digital chart in 2014 despite their status as rookies.
Zion. T with The Session and Dean were both recently announced by SXSW and fans are very excited. Zion. T is a well-known R&B artist who is sure to pull in a large crowd. Zion. T charted many times last year both solo and for his collaboration with artist Crush. His solo song, Eat, won Best Vocal Performance by a Male at the Mnet MAMA awards.
Dean has been making waves the last year after releasing music of his own. Dean, also known as Deanfluenza, is responsible for writing and helping produce many popular KPOP hits like EXO’s “Black Pearl” and “Unfair” and the song VIXX got their first win with, “Voodoo Doll.” His first release as Dean, “I Love It” feat. Dok2 was well received and his follow up song “Pour Up” feat. Zico charted in the Top 30 on the MelOn’s digital charts.
Alongside these performances will be Rock and Metal groups Bye Bye Badman and Victim Mentality, the latter of which is a SXSW veteran. Electronic groups Love X Stereo and Haihm are also bringing more variety to the event.
