Singer Guests Announced for Hyper Japan
posted on by Andrew Osmond
The web page of 'Moshi Moshi Nippon,' which has the purpose of 'sending out Japanese pop culture to overseas,' lists several singers who will appear at the Hyper Japan festival in London in July. They include:
Nagi Yanagi (pictured right), who has performed closing songs for Bakemonogatari, Naruto Shippūden (both with the group supercell), Waiting in the Summer, Black Bullet, Nagi no Asukara, Jormungand and Jormungand Perfect Order. She has also performed opening songs for Amnesia and My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU. (Note - Magi Yanagi is listed as a Hyper Japan guest on the 'Moshi Moshi Nippon' page, but she is not currently listed on Hyper Japan's own guest page. ANN has sent a query to Hyper Japan to check.)
Anna Yano (pictured left) who performed the opening songs for Magica Wars and Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3.
There will also be a performance of AOI Project's VOCALOID Bunraku Puppet Opera, a 30-minute performance in which traditional Japanese puppets dance to Vocaloid singing - more details here.
The Hyper Japan festival in London runs from Friday July 25 to Sunday July 27. Advance tickets are here. The ticket page specifies that 'If pre-booked ticket sales reach the venue's maximum capacity, there will be no on the door ticket sales.'
On Saturday, there will be two different sessions to avoid queuing sessions, running from 9:15 a.m. to 2.15 p.m. and from 3.15 p.m. to 8.15 p.m. The venue will be completely closed between 2.15 p.m. and 3.15 p.m.
The festival takes place at Earls Court One (directions).
