Wonder Girls and Akon to perform
“The two acts will join forces to perform on one stage,” said a spokesperson from the event.
Other big names to take part in the music festival, which promotes “Green Culture,” are 10cm, Delispice and Infected Mushroom.
While Wonder Girls is a Hallyu group that is popular in Asia and gaining force in the United States, Akon is best known as a hip-hop and R&B singer, as well as the producer who launched Lady Gaga’s career.
The Korean girl group and the American musician also share a special bond as the latter took part as a featured artist in the group’s new song, “Like Money.”
As the group looks to promote itself in the States again, Akon will support the group there.
