By Michael May 1, 2024

Gold House revealed its annual A100 list on Wednesday (May 1), honoring the 100 Asian Pacific leaders who have most significantly impacted American culture and society in the last year, and some of today’s biggest music stars have made the list.

Stray Kids, Charli XCX, Steve Aoki, Jung Kook, Keanu Reeves, Hayao Mayazaki, Dev Patel, Bella Poarch and many more are all honored this year under the list’s Entertainment and Media category. Olivia Rodrigo and Jason Momoa are among the entertainers in this year’s A100 Hall of Fame inductees, while HYBE Chairman Bang Si-Hyuk will be honored as a Gold Legend. Up-and-coming New Gold honorees include ATEEZ, Laufey and more.

The third annual Gold Gala event will take place at the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles on May 11 and, as previously announced, the night will feature a performance from 2023 A100 honoree Saweetie, who will receive the first-ever Billboard Gold Music Honor at the event, recognizing her boundary-pushing musical accomplishments. In addition, the cast and creators of Emmy-winning Beef will receive the Gold Icon Honor for their groundbreaking representation of the Asian American experience, while Wicked star Cynthia Erivo will be given the Gold Ally Honor for her work to advance inclusive representation in front of and behind the camera. HYBE founder Bang Si-Hyuk will be bestowed with the lifetime achievement Gold Legend Honor and Hello Kitty’s 50th anniversary will be celebrated with the Gold Generation Award.

“This year was special: Asian Pacific leaders had a record number of records broken while building a more inclusive tomorrow for all, particularly in new avenues like AI. Gold House is honored to celebrate so many new and established leaders who are committed to both equity and excellence,” said Bing Chen and Jeremy Tran, CEO and COO of Gold House.

The Gold Gala will be followed by the inaugural Billboard x Gold House Founders Party, which will feature a headlining set from producer/DJ Steve Aoki, as well as a performance from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 16 winner Nymphia Wind, a karaoke room presented by Rakuten Viki and an additional set from DJ Hu Dat.
