American rap metal supergroup, Prophets of Rage, will grace the main stage of today's Hodgepodge Superfest 2019 in Allianz Ecopark Ancol, North Jakarta.

The band is manned by Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk from Rage Against the Machine, DJ Lord and Chuck D from Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill.

Formed in 2016 as an angry response to Trump's presidency, the band released The Party's Over EP in 2016 and a self-titled album in 2017.

The band's first performance in Indonesia has been awaited by the Indonesian fans of the three original groups.

Besides Prophets of Rage, today's event will star international acts such as art pop group Superorganism and New York pop-punk band State Champs.

Indonesian acts to perform today include Danilla, Barasuara and Reality Club.

The first day of Hodgepodge Superfest 2019 was graced by performances by English indie pop act The Japanese House and Brooklyn-based hip hop group Phony Ppl. American emo band The Used, which is widely popular in the country and last performed in Jakarta in 2008, was the headliner.

Tickets for the festival's second day are still available for purchase at the venue. (wng)
