Boy group “Infinite” will participate in “Summer Sonic Festival 2012,” Asia‘s largest music festival slated for Aug. 18-19 in Japan, as the representative Korean idol group. Infinite was included in the line-up of Summer Sonic along with actor Jang Keun-suk and rock band Jaurim.
Previous Korean groups to have participated in the music festival were Big Bang in 2010 and Girls’ Generation in 2011. In an official press release, Summer Sonic organizers announced Infinite’s participation in the festival and introduced them as a vocal and dance group enjoying great popularity in Japan.
Summer Sonic have invited artists and groups representing K-POP since 2010. Infinite have quickly gained popularity in Japan, and their second album “Be Mine” ranked second in the Oricon weekly chart. As tickets for their independent concert twice sold out in ten minutes, they are emerging as a new generation “hallyu (Korean wave)” icon.
The Summer Sonic Festival is the largest music festival in Asia and is being held simultaneously in Osaka and Chiba. The line-up includes top Japanese singers and world-famous international acts. From Korea, Seo Taiji was invited to the festival for the first time in 2001, followed by Nell, Big Bang, BoA, Girls’ Generation.
This year Green Day, Rihanna, Jamiroquai and other artists have been invited to perform. Infinite will perform on mountain stage in Tokyo in August 18 and Osaka in August 19. Infinite, who completed local activities with “Chaser”, are now preparing to meet Japanese fans on the occasion of the Summer Sonic Festival.
