 Anime Expo is the largest anime and Japanese pop culture event in North America. The larger it grows, the more world famous talent they can book straight from Japan. 2018 promised to be no exception, with Anime Expo’s social media pages posting teasers the entire week leading up to their announcement.
Every year they host “Anisong World Matsuri”. Anisong World Matsuri is a company that is in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO Arts, Inc., Amuse Inc., Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc., and other companies. Anisong World Matsuri’s mission is to bring anisong concerts to the world. This is their third year being invited to Anime Expo.

 

    Anime Expo released a statement early this morning saying, “Anime Expo (AX) is excited to present Anisong World Matsuri (AWM) at Anime Expo 2018 to be held during Anime Expo on July 4, 6, and 7. AWM is created in association with BANDAI NAMCO Arts, Inc., Amuse Inc., Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc., and other leading Japanese entertainment companies.” (Ticket Sales Date TBA) All tickets will be between $60-$150.
