avex to hold annual summer event 'a-nation' for 2012


The details of the annual summer event 'a-nation' by entertainment company avex have been revealed. This year marks the event's 11th anniversary, and Fuji TV is reported to be co-sponsoring it. With the theme "artist and audience all across asia",  they will hold two stadium festival events, 'studium fes', in the east and west side of Japan, but they are also holding 'music week' at Shibuya and Yoyogi first gymnasiums in Tokyo from August 3rd to the 12th.

'music week' is a new project from a-nation, and according to avex, they created this new event to challenge new styles after they celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. During those days, a-nation will hijack Shibuya with decorated buses and a-nation flags hung on streetlights around Shibuya. They will also sell goods and collaborate with fashion, food, and amusement industries at the  "trendsetting area in Japan". The project company stated with confidence, "It will be a never-seen enjoyable event to involve Shibuya in."

The main event for this 'music week' are live performances at Yoyogi first gymnasium. Based on themes such as 'Band', 'Anime songs', 'Idol', 'Rock' and more, AKB48, VAMPS, m-flo, E-Girls, AAA and other artists will appear and perform daily.

'stadium fes' will be held at Nagai Stadium in Osaka on August 18th and 19th, and at Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo on August 25th and 26th. They will announce artists for this event sometime around the beginning of June.

Check out the performance list of 'music week' below. (The list might be changed in the future.)
