I think local bands would be cool so long as they maintain that relation to anime and japanese culture/influences (if anyone happens to know of appropriate bands post them, I'd love to check them out as I can't actually think of any myself). However, it has always been very exciting for me in the past to see an actual band/artist from Japan. Personally I wouldn't sacrifice that entirely even if it meant a much larger program.

My 2 cents--just like I'm not really interested in seeing dub actors, I'm not really interested in seeing local bands, although I totally get that there are people who may want it. I always make an effort to go see all the Japanese bands you guys get to play every year even when they're not a genre I'm particularly into because I know the amount of work it takes to get somebody from overseas, and I appreciate the rare opportunity to get to see bands I wouldn't otherwise without going to Japan.  :D It's one of the big highlights of Fanime for me, so I'd be pretty disappointed if you went for local cover bands instead. If it's a numbers thing, I'd much rather see one or two artists from Japan instead of a bunch of local bands. And I agree with all of Ecchi ja Nai's comments/alternatives!

Yeah... the last time we had a state side artist playing. Not well received? Try having a crowd member boo so loud you can hear them! Fanime is always known to get a very big name to play. If you MUST have a local band. Make sure they have an actual reputation and people would know fairly well before having them perform in Musicfest.

I'm gonna be honest. If it wasn't for the headliner, Fanime would have NOTHING for me to return back to the convention. If we don't get a big name Japanese band or have a good reputation. I'd rather just skip the convention and save up for a convention that KNOWS what they are doing.

Oh and also? You guys want feedback since you always so call welcome it? Here's something you can work on  COMMUNICATION FOR EVERYTHING. GETTING INFORMATION OUT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. NO COOKIE CUT ANSWERS OR EXCUSES.

The fact that you're asking this makes me wonder if one (or both) of the following things have occurred for Fanime 2016.

1) The big name group you thought was going to show up has canceled.  You know you can find local acts to fit the bill, but in order to justify it, you're going to ask attendees so you can later claim that you're catering to what (a small percentage) of your attendees want.  In other words, a Fanime 2012 repeat.

2) You're looking for ways to cut costs to fund the money into....'better' and/or more guests? Free water for all attendees?  Staff that can announce things in a timely fashion?

Fanime's one saving grace was their ability to get a solid Japanese group to perform.  Even when the rest of the guest list was (largely) disastrous, MusicFest would always round things out.  I even contemplated missing Animazement, despite them landing Nobuteru Yuuki, because of Home Made Kazoku in 2014.  For someone who has little interest in musical guests and goes to conventions solely for the animation guests, that was quite notable.

I hate seeing topics like these because I've seen similar request threads ignored in lieu of whatever Fanime management was already planning to do.  I guess it's great that you're the only large convention that I know of that still has a forum and allows people to post their thoughts, but I often wonder if that's just a meaningless gesture when our voiced concerns are rarely addressed.

I would be very disappointed if the only musical guests were local garage bands. Fanime just isn't the proper audience for that.

As I've mentioned in my previous post, my asking the question has absolutely no reflection on what is happening for 2016 (and things ARE happening. I'm not at liberty to say what until it's all 'official.' And a repeat of 2012 is NOT happening.)

Let's just say I received feedback that said I was doing a disservice to FanimeCon attendees by not having a local band play, and this isn't the first time I've been told that I should strongly consider local bands. My attempt was to see if that feeling was felt by others who actually go to MusicFest. The survey was a tool for me to see if there was something that was really wanted apart from what we were already doing in focusing mostly on Japanese acquisitions.

Meanwhile, MusicFest's twitter has been dropping hints of who's coming this year... So I think we'll get the announcement soon!

(I already figured it out based on the hints, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for others! I wasn't familiar with them before, but looked them up and they look like they'll put on a fun show. Congrats on getting that group, MF staff!)

Well, I was getting stumped, and just went to google in plans of going through 5-member groups to find out who fit the hints. XDD I went to images, saw "them", went to their wiki page in a Jpop Wiki, I think it was?? And it said the youngest was 22, then I saw their song "Hush Hush", and that's when I knew......... XDDD


I was actually way off before, cause I was trying to find Jpop/Jrock songs with "monkeys" in the title. XDDD Cause I thought the monkeys had to do with the song in some way.

Figured it out as well and I'm actually surprised. Although, correct me if I'm wrong, they haven't done any anime related work, huh? While I'm slightly disappointed, it's nice to see this group after all the genres we've been hearing the past couple years. Hopefully they put on a great show.

I probably won't receive an answer on this, but will there be a second act? :P

Yeah, I saw that they haven't done any stuff for anime, but I'm sure their performance will still be good!! ^^ (And yes, it's nice to see a jpop band for a change!! <3 )

I'm hoping there's a second one!! I mean, Back-On did great last year, but the concert felt so short with just one act. :( Hoping that getting just one act isn't a permanent thing!!

Reposting this here as an offhand suggestion since it popped into my head while posting in the main guests thread, and since we've been having discussions here on non-Japanese guests. ^^

Quote
I've gotten into watching Youtube playthroughs with my boyfriend, and one comedy gaming channel we're both huge fans of is Game Grumps. The main players are Arin and Danny who reside in LA, I believe. They're really personable and entertaining so panels featuring them would be great, they'd add even more variety into the lineup, and maybe could play against fans + do live playthroughs (is this a thing?) with the Gaming Hall. :)

Danny is also in a comedy band called Ninja Sex Party which would be a hilarious act at MusicFest or Stage Zero, though some songs are NSFW, and I don't actually know if that's allowed.. They're really popular too, so I wonder about the expense.

NSP isn't anime-related or meant to be a serious band, it's just appealingly nerdy, and would fit the Fanime crowd well. I agree in that it'd be even better to add in an indie Japanese group, but if not possible, a local group would be great too. My recommended hierarchy would be something like.. second Japanese headliner > indie Japanese group > American group with large following > indie American group > no additional groups. It'd be good to add in one more act as an opening, and for variety.

Some JP ones I'd like:
JAM Project (Think everyone would love hearing the One Punch Man theme in person)
Akino from bless4
Aoi Eir
Linked Horizon
The Oral Cigarettes
Man with a Mission
Any subdivision of E-Girls
....... Arashi... XD (Or Jun alone, he could just stand on stage and smile at the audience and everyone would be happy :3)

LOL JoAnnwashere!!  I WISH we could get Arashi XD You can probably put me completely on record when I say that the probability of that happening is close to zero :(

Anyway, today should be really interesting :) Like in the afternoon around 5 pm lol  ;)

I would love some Kpop bands like BTS or VIXX to come one day but I'd also love to have SID or AKB48 as well!

I'm open to J-pop groups like these... I've seen Momoiro Clover Z at AX and I did enjoy it. I can't exactly say it was my cup of tea though. I'm not really into the whole boy band or group thing. I just only hope they are not the only one playing this year. If anything, I hope they perform as an opening act or play for 2 whole hours.

Also... PLEASE tell me there is going to be more then just one artist...
