[K-CONCERT REVIEW] Asian Music Festival 2014


On May 25, 2014 ShowkAAse covered the first Asian Music Festival at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, CA. The event featured some of South Korea’s hottest hip-hop stars from Verbal Jint, Bumkey to Beenzino.

The event started with the openers, DanAKADan as well as IAMMEDIC who performed a short set each before rapper Beenzino came on stage to mesmerize the crowd with his great looks and amazing rap skills. Right before his set was finished, he gave out a few of his albums to the present audience.

Next to grace the AMF 2014 stage is singer Bumkey who brought along his fellow TROY bandmate, Kanto. The singer and rapper took the stage with great covers and originals. They also remembered to interact with their fans by giving awesome fan service throughout their set. Bumkey and Kanto also gave out TROY sweaters to a few lucky fans in the crowd. Bumkey also told the audience how happy he was to finally be back in Los Angeles, his hometown as he performed a special stage, “Happy” by Pharrell.

Once the singer and rapper exited the stage, legendary rapper Verbal Jint came up to start his stage as he featured almost all the present artists. He had some solo stages before singing one song with Kanto, a few with singer Hwayoung as well as Bumkey.

They ended the fantastic night by taking a group photo with everyone present in the venue. Many girls left with smiles on their faces as well as guys who were happy to see an awesome hip-hop set in Los Angeles.
