J-Pop Summit Festival in San Francisco This July!

The 2014 J-POP SUMMIT Festival, San Francisco’s annual celebration of Japanese pop culture, music, fashion and film, is fast approaching! This year’s theme is “POP Is Our Tradition,” and denizens of the Bay Area will be treated to some of the best J-Pop acts out there.

If you head over to Japantown on Saturday and Sunday, July 19th and 20th, you can catch acts like pop/rock/anime singer May’n, Tokyo Girls’ Style (in their first-ever U.S. appearance), beatboxer DAICHI, Harajuku fashion model/singer Una, the U.S. debut of the kimono cosplay duo YANAKIKU, and J-rock bands Pinky Doodle Poodle & The Akabane Vulgars on Strong Bypass.

 

There are also plans for an open air performance in Union Square on Saturday night, in case you can’t make it over to Peace Plaza. More acts will be announced soon, so fingers crossed for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu or my favorite: Capsule.

For details and set times keep your eye on the J-Pop Summit website!
