5th Annual J-Pop Summit Festival in San Francisco

First off, a couple of questions: Do you like Japanese culture and music? Do you enjoy spending time with other people who share the same interests as you do for a couple of days? Do you enjoy buying unique trinkets and items imported directly from Japan that you can’t get anywhere else (except for Japan)? Do you enjoy seeing cosplayers, or dressing up yourself? Finally, do you live within driving/muni distance of San Francisco and want to spend the best weekend of your summer in SF Japantown, hanging with friends both old and new?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any/all of those, especially the last question (that one’s important), then you should get your tail on down to San Francisco Japantown for the J-Pop Summit Festival, happening on July 27th-28th!

The previous years have been chock-full of awesome attractions and displays, such as Danceroid, the AKB48 documentary ‘To be continued…’ premiere, a holographic 3D Hatsune Miku concert, fashion shows, artistic graffiti, outdoor raves, you name it. Well, this year will be the year to beat them all, featuring such attractions as:

Now for the main attraction…

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will be performing live in Union Square on July 28th to what will most certainly be a sold-out audience.
