Rising Japan MusicFest comes to L.A. on July 22 and July 23, featuring Japanese food, music and culture.
With the goal of supporting Japanese and Japanese-American artists and spreading the love for Japanese music in the United States, Rising Japan MusicFest is an event organized and hosted by the creators of the OC JAPAN FAIR. Two outdoor stages will showcase Japanese, Japanese-American, and American musical artists.
This year’s lineup includes legendary pop duo Def Tech, Shanice (the American singer-songwriter behind the hit song “I Love Your Smile,”), Los Angeles-based reggae artist Iakopo, and Minami, a TikTok hit singer produced by Naoki Wada, who also produced End of the World.
In addition, attendees can enjoy stand-up comedy, meet the maids from Arcane Maid Cafe, and watch a dance performance, along with shopping and a variety of Japanese food.
Tickets are available at RJM’s website (https://risingjapan-musicfest.com/tickets/) and at the door. VIP tickets are also available.
