Innovative music producer Yung Bae has unveiled an extensive tour of his acclaimed album Groove Continental across North America, which will begin on September 9.
With no fewer than 23 dates, the tour kicks off at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on September 9, where Yung Bae will bring together some of the most prominent producers from the Vaporwave and Future Funk scene, including; famed vaporwave producer Saint Pepsi, Brooklyn-based indie-electronic band Flamingosis, and nostalgic electronic-pop producer George Clanton.
Mexican vaporwave musician Macross 82-99 will take on Japanese producer Vantage, while Moe Shop will bring fans into their Tokyo-influenced creative world. Also announced is ’80s retro culture creator Night Tempo.
Other stops on the tour include San Francisco (September 10), Miami (October 7), Toronto (October 20) and Detroit (October 21), before things wrap up in Chicago on October 22 (full tour list below). The aforementioned supporting acts will feature on select other legs of the tour, as will Neon Indian, Roosevelt and Washed Out.
The Groove Continental (Side A) LP has already won over many fans, including BTS’ RM backing lead single “LOVE” ft EARTHGANG, Jon Batiste and Sherwyn on social media. A landmark release, it elevates Yung Bae to the upper echelons of contemporary music and this event will further establish him as a conservative master. Alongside the announced tour, Yung Bae will continue her festival circuit by playing Splash House, A-Track & Friends Block Party, Electric Forest, Breakaway Music Festival, and Firefly Music Festival this summer.
