Every year, the ACen guest team works hard to invite exciting, talented people to be part of our event, and music is an integral part of that to us. 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.
