Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, one of Japan's most popular pop stars, will be performing live at J-POP Summit Festival 2013 in San Francisco's Union Square.
Japanese pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is taking the world by storm with her ultra upbeat and cavity inducing electropop music, quirky personality, cute look, and eye-catching (wild) fashion sense. Hot off her world tour this past spring which consisted of 19 shows in 9 countries including Japan, Singapore, the United States, France, and the UK, Kyary is already coming back to our side of the world this summer for a special performance at J-POP Festival 2013 in San Francisco’s Union Square on July 28th, 2013 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
In high school, Kyary blogged about fashion and eventually became a model herself in Harajuku-style fashion magazines. By 2011, her popularity as a model and fashion personality grew to new levels prompting Warner Music Japan to release her first mini-album, Moshimoshi Harajuku, which included her first hit, PONPONPON – which boasts well over 50-million video views on YouTube. Recently, she won two awards at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards Japan for her song Fashion Monster in the Best Pop Video and Best Karaokee! Song categories.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu headlines an entire concert being held in San Francisco’s historical Union Square that will include other acts direct from Japan including model & singer from Harajuku Kawaii!! UNA, Sony Music Japan star KYLEE, and the human beat box phenomenon DAICHI. Hosted by NEW PEOPLE, the J-POP Festival is the largest event of its kind in the U.S., drawing 60,000 attendees last year. The best part of all this is that admission to the Union Square live concert is FREE! Along with Japanese pop music, there will be plenty of other Japanese pop cultural attractions at the festival to enjoy including art, movies, food, and fashion.
We last saw Kyary on the Los Angeles leg of her world tour and we definitely can’t wait to see her perform again. Again, admission is free for the concert, so if you get the chance, we hope to see you out at the J-POP Festival 2013.
