What: Hip-hop group Far East Movement and World of Dance, featuring wildly-popular dance crew JabbaWockeeZ, celebrate the final weekend of Universal CityWalk’s free summer “Music Spotlight Series” at the “5 Towers” stage on Thursday, August 28 and Saturday, August 30.
“5 Towers” stage at Universal CityWalk is Los Angeles’ free premier open-air concert venue which is host to a multitude of performances by some of today’s most influential artists, including Jason DeRulo, CeeLo Green, John Legend, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepson, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz and Good Charlotte.
WHO: Based in Los Angeles, Far East Movement got their big break when their song “Round and Round” was featured in the blockbuster film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.” From there, their smash hit “Like a G6” with Dev took the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 – a first for an Asian-American group. They continue to release new music and have collaborated with Travis Garland, Riff Raff and Sidney Samson, among others.
The winners of the first season of “America’s Best Dance Crew,” the JabbaWockeeZ headline the World of Dance night. With their iconic white masks, this eight-member team impresses audiences with their extraordinary dance style and synchronized routines.
