Aqours and The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls join Anisong World Matsuri at Anime Expo 2017!

The organizers of the Anime Expo convention announced on Thursday that it will host the full Aqours idol group and six members of The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls idol group as part of the convention's Anisong World Matsuri music festival event. The two acts will perform on June 30 at 7 pm at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.

Aqours (pronounced “aqua”) is the school idol group formed in Uchiura, Shizuoka, for the multimedia project “Love Live! Sunshine!!”. The project started in April 2015 and spread across various media including CDs, live events, magazines, and mobile apps. The first single “Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai?” was released in October 2015. The TV anime aired in summer 2016, and they had their first live shows at Yokohama Arena on February 25 and 26, 2017, which attracted 12,000 fans each day. Their future project “”Aqours Next Step! Project”” includes a second anime season, tour, and CD releases.






Anisong World Matsuri will hold concerts on Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1 during the convention. The festival event ran at last year's Anime Expo 2016 as a collaboration between Lantis, Sony Music Entertainment Japan Inc., Amuse, Bandai Visual, Bandai Namco Live Creative, and Anime Consortium Japan. Otakon will also host the event in August for its East Coast debut.

This year's Anime Expo convention will run from July 1 to July 4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. In addition, the convention will formally include a preview night a day before on June 30.
