Please check out the official statement for JAPAN NIGHT.
We believe music has the power to move people and help them move forward. We also believe that Japanese popular music has touched numerous people’s hearts in various generations, and it has been and will be deeply rooted in the culture, society and the future of Japan.
Japan has walked through a long hardship and now it’s trying to start over for the big break through of 2020’s Tokyo Olympic.
Japan has overcome the aftermath of the earthquake and has been positively moving forward to create a bright future.
We would like to cheer up Japan through the power of music.
We’d also like the people in the world to know our country and the power that lives in our music.
This hope brought together the newborn Japanese event “JAPAN NIGHT”, and has gathered all the musicians who has been cheering up the country and performing internationally.
The first “JAPAN NIGHT” will be held during the final week of the legendary sport and music event place “National Olympic Stadium” which will end its long history on May 31st 2014.
Hoping that the reborn National Olympic Stadium will bring back the excitement and movement of sports and entertainment back to Japan and to the world in 2019, and also in order to support Japan’s new start for 2020, when the world will witness the new Japan including the new National Olympic Stadium, everything starts here at National Olympic Stadium.
Music goes beyond words.
