Fresh off her seven-night stand to close out NYC’s legendary Roseland Ballroom, Lady Gaga has been announced as a headliner at this summer’s AIA Real Life: Now Festival in Seoul, South Korea. She’ll top the bill on the second of two nights, in a move that makes sense considering Mother Monster’s interest in K-Pop, the genre’s influence on ARTPOP and the fact that she enlisted Korea’s Crayon Pop as her opener on the ARTPOP Ball tour.
Other headliners announced include PSY, 2NE1 and Winner. And we would go bananas if Gaga collaborated live with 2NE1 or even PSY, to be honest.
Gaga last performed in Seoul in 2012, where her show was deemed unsuitable for attendees under 18. If any of the censors saw her SXSW show, then it won’t be surprising if the same restriction is placed on this performance, even though her most recent shows were pretty tame in that respect.
The Real Life: Now fest takes place at Jamsil Sports Complex on August 15-16.
