Japan Expo puts young talents and stars to be in the spotlight. Since 2014, the contest Tokyo Candoll, organised in partnership with the festival, enables the idol band who wins the competition to perform on the Karasu stage, perfect to launch a career! Two more contests featured new bands in 2017: Tokyo Candoll -BOYS- and JAPAN EXPO ROCKs.
And to show you even more artists of varied styles, Japan Expo has launched in 2016 the J-music Springboards, with rock, pop, jazz... musicians, mixing styles to allow you to have a look at the abunding Japanese underground music scene.
