Anisong World Matsuri

Back again with an amazing line up, Anisong World Matsuri returns to Anime Expo with a slew of singers on July 4. The event begins with the idols from Love Live’s Aqours and marks their full-length concert United States debut.

The festival started at Anime Expo, Los Angeles in 2016 and had an East Coast encore at Otakon in 2017. For its third anniversary, this year will once again take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center during the July 4th week, from July 4th to July 7th. Similar to previous years, Anisong will have three different shows: Love Live! Aquors concert, Japan Super Live, and Japan Kawaii Live.

Ticket costs range from $60 for normal seats, $85 for orchestra, and $150 for VIP packages. What’s included in the VIP tickets are priority entrance, front row seating, and a “special goodbye” with the artists after the concert. Tickets can be purchased on Anime Expo’s website.
