The HYPER Live! Stage is the home of big performances at every HYPER JAPAN.
From bubblegum pop to Japanese hip hop, ultradark Tokyo idols to traditional instruments played in surprising new ways, the HYPER Live! Stage really does welcome everyone and we try to represent as many different genres as possible each year.
This year’s HYPER Live! Stage is proud to welcome three exceptional artists to London and we are all very much looking forward to their very different performances.
Japanese Shamisen Rock Band KUNI-KEN are making their UK debut at HYPER JAPAN Festival 2019 and we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome them.
Brothers Kuniaki and Kenji from Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture have been performing their unique blend of rock music and Japanese shamisen for over 15 years.
Their incredible mix of the traditional and the modern creates a fascinating sound and we can’t wait to see their show!
choco is an exciting young musician and radio personality from Karatsu in Saga prefecture. She loves manga, anime and cosplay and she is a trained voice actor as well as a singer.
choco is really excited about coming to HYPER JAPAN Festival 2019 and she hopes to meet and communicate with UK anime and manga fans and cosplayers and share her passion.
IJEN KAI are the most mysterious musician we will be welcoming to the HYPER Live! Stage this summer. Their origins and genre are unidentified and HYPER JAPAN will be their first ever performance in Europe.
That’s about all we know of IJEN KAI so far, but we hope you will join us at the HYPER Live! Stage to find out more about them.
