The 34th Annual Asian American Expo is happening on January 17-18th in Pomona, CA, and is adding a Saturday night music festival to its long list of events: the first time ever: Lunar Palooza!

Though the Expo is a 2 day event, Lunar Palooza is Saturday, January 17th only, and starts at 7pm! From the looks of it, the Palooza will host 2 stages – an outdoor stage for live performances  and an indoor stage with DJs spinning all night.  The outdoor stage lineup includes local girl Lydia Paek of YG Entertainment fame, and Asian American female rock group Nylon Pink who some will recognize from KCON appearances.

Lunar Palooza has put together a YouTube playlist to help us get revved up for show. And, check out “the official word” below, sent to us by the K-Town Night Market folks, for more info on this new music festival and the history of the AA Expo!
