Last year Anime Expo debuted to their attendees Anisong World Matsuri, which was a concert event celebrating anime music. During this event, eight bands were performing at Anime Expo last year including:
This event was such a huge success, and was well received from attendees that Anime Expo has announced Anisong World Matsuri will indeed return for 2017. As far as who will be performing at next year's Anime Expo is yet to be announced. Also Prices for the tickets for the concert are also yet to be announced. This past year, fans were able to attend the concert only by purchasing tickets for the concert, and must have an Anime Expo badge. The badge had to be either a four day, and or a one day badge to attend the concert event.
I was rather surprised how Anime Expo was able to pull this event off, as well as the amount of bands to Anime Expo this past year. I only wonder how Anime Expo will be able to top this event for next year, since they are already set the bar so high for themselves. The other big question is the money this must of costs to bring the talent here, but with the recent VIP packages that Anime Expo has set up, this may help Anime Expo levitate the costs.
