Every year, the ACen guest team works hard to invite exciting, talented people to be part of our event, and musical concerts are an integral part of that. We aim to inform, surprise, excite, and entertain by bringing a variety of music acts to the convention. From the well-known, to the up and coming, we hope you’ll not only find a new favorite band, (or get the chance to see your current favorite live), but learn about current anime and Japanese pop culture as well.
Unless otherwise noted, all concerts are included as part of your ACen membership purchase. Each year thousands of attendees look forward to an amazing show from our international and domestic musical guests on our main stage as a part of our annual convention.
Each concert will have a maximum capacity limit to them and once that capacity is reached no more attendees will be able to enter. Be prepared to arrive early if you plan on attending one of the concerts at Anime Central. Anime Central does not guarantee the entry to any of the concerts held over the course of the convention.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will be ending the North American leg of her POPPP world tour at Anime Central. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s performances are a visual treat with their eccentric themes, vibrant colors, and energetic choreography. Her music is a fusion of J-pop, electro-pop, and techno, and she has collaborated with several renowned artists, including Yasutaka Nakata and Charli XCX. Anime Central attendees can look forward to a live performance by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, as well as a meet-and-greet session.
Also joining Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Moe Shop will be the opening act for this concert.
