PERFORMING ARTIST GUEST OF HONOR
 

ACME_MAIN_202308-1-Small.jpg

JAPANESE PERFORMING ARTIST
ACME is a visual kei band that formed in 2017 consisting of DIV vocalist CHISA and guitarist SHOGO, former ARTEMA drummer HAL, and bassist RIKITO.

The name of the band means “the vertex of evolution” and the band concept is “Delinquent boys from another world”. Well known for their post-hardcore and metalcore sound, ACME are a staple in the visual kei scene.

JAPANESE PERFORMING ARTIST
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.

BLACK ROS3 PERFORMING ARTIST
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."

DJ GUEST OF HONOR

DJ SHAUK
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. 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.
