This year’s J-Pop Summit looks to be bigger than ever. The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, August 8 and 9, at the historic Fort Mason Center in San Francisco’s Marina district, and while we’ll have to wait to find out what the second day holds, day 1 programming has been announced.
During the afternoon attendees can look forward to a variety of live performances, including the U.S. debut of 6-member female a cappella group Little Glee Monster. Also debuting will be Japanese idol group FES★TIVE, which is appropriately built around the concept of “festivals”; comedy duo Jaru Jaru; and the U.S. debut of stylish female pop duo Faint★Star.
Saturday night will be taken over courtesy of J-POP LIVE NIGHT, featuring an evening concert by anime music super-group JAM Project, as well as live sets from pop singer Eir Aoi, rock band Gacharin Spin, and returning acts JinnyOops! and the Akabane Vulgars on Strong Bypass.
