According to uproxx.com 88rising CEO and founder Sean Miyashiro describes his thought about the upcoming festival.
“88rising started in New York City, from a parking garage in the Bronx to where the first employees came together where we sat in a room in a shared space in Brooklyn to lay the foundation of what 88rising is.”
Miyashiro adds: “It was the most magical time of my life — the whole experience of building and things starting to happen, is the best part of all this. All of this happened in New York City, winter, spring, summer fall — through the seasons it’s where 88rising took shape, and I’m beyond proud and to me it’s only fitting that this was all born there. It’s especially meaningful to be able to do it at an iconic venue like Forest Hills Stadium during its 100th anniversary!”
Ticket registration is open now along with pre-sale opening this Friday at 10am, and general sale on Monday, March 20, at 10am.
