NEO JAPONISM - Performing guest
NEO JAPONISM is a five-member idol group whose concept is "to fight - to win and live together”. Instead of running away from difficulties, Neo Japonism has the strength to win against themselves. The current group began in November 2019. They have achieved rapid growth with their quick distribution and unique shows during the Corona pandemic. Their eccentric activities, such as live performances on the famous Noh stage in Kamakura, have attracted a lot of attention. With catchy songs that move freely between rock, dance music, and pop, and a strong and formidable skill set that allows all members to play the main role, they overwhelm the audience with their unrivaled live performances. In 2021, the group released one mini-album and eight singles, and their nationwide tour started in August, selling out all seven shows, including the final show at Spotify O-EAST. In March 2022, the group made its nationwide debut with the novel release of "M-card with Kintaro candy". In August, the group held its largest solo performance "Ittou Ryoudan" at Zepp DiverCity (TOKYO). Now they are making their US debut this fall with appearances on the East and West Coast, including Las Vegas!

DJ Shauk - DJ performing guest
Picture this: a cosmic traveler, a maestro of melodies, and a wizard of rhythm. Shauk, known by many as a musical mage, emerged from the north like an enigmatic warrior, armed with a vinyl sword and a burning obsession for music. Like a character straight out of a Studio Ghibli masterpiece, Shauk embarked on an odyssey through treacherous mountains and ancient ruins, mastering the mystical arts of musical manipulation.
In the shadows of the Pacific Northwest, where forest spirits whisper secrets to those who listen, Shauk harnessed the very power of the mountain itself. With each twist of a knob and every drop of the bass, they summoned pulsating beats that shook Terra's very foundations, as if channeling the awe-inspiring abilities of a Dragonborn commanding respect from mighty dragons. So, mortals of this realm, prepare to be enchanted, for Shauk is not just a DJ; they are a musical sorcerer, a sonic alchemist, and a guardian of dancefloor realms.
As the beats drop and melodies flow, let Shauk be your guide on a journey through the mystical soundscape of euphoria and wonder.
Black Ros3 - Jrock performing guest
The band explain where Black Ros3 comes from, they really embody the anime love that unites us all.
"BLACKROS3 means a lot of things to us. This ranges from card games, to memorable songs, to some general coolness. A major connection is our love of the Yu-Gi-Oh card game. This interest of ours stems back to our childhoods where Michael competed competitively and Vanessa focused her plant deck around the Black Rose Dragon card. In a more musical connection, Rose by Anna Tsuchiya (from the anime Nana) was a staple song in both of our previous band’s set, and became something we quickly identified to. Lastly, domain names are just hard to find. The 3 in our name doesn’t have much hidden meaning, but we like to think that our special guest performers or our audience can be that special 3rd member that makes each event special."
Sazan Yosakoi - Japanese performing guest
"Konnichiwa! The Sazan Yosakoi Team was established in Las Vegas in Dec 2021. Nozomi Takahashi is the group leader.
Yosakoi is a Japanese dance style that combines elements of traditional Japanese dance with wooden Naruko in our hands and music with many modern influences. We are excited to be the guest of the Sin City Anime Convention 2023! We appreciate the Anime fans. Let's have fun together! Please come see us at the Opening ceremony on 11/3 and the Closing ceremony on 11/5."
