Guests I Want For MusicFest 2017!!!

(1/13) > >>

This thread is for MusicFest guest requests! For general guest requests, please use this thread in order for those requests to reach the correct department.

Remember: the sooner you request, the better chance you have of staff being able to fulfill that request! These acquisitions can take months of planning/talking, so request early! All requests placed here are monitored by official staff, so no other steps (aside from posting here) are necessary to make sure your suggestion is heard.

For 2017, I'd like to see (copied and pasted from my 2016 request):

* The Pillows (forever first on my list). They perform the whole soundtrack for FLCL and are just a great group all around.
* ClariS. Featured in Madoka Magica, Nisekoi, OreImo, Nise/Tsukimonogatari.
* Tommy Heavenly6. Featured in Soul Eater, Paradise Kiss, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Gintama, Bakuman, and Pokemon.
* Crystal Kay. Featured in Nodame Cantablie, Fullmetal Alchemist, and several J-dramas.
* Kalafina. Featured in Madoka Magica, Black Butler, and Fate/Zero.
* Etsuko Yakushimaru. Featured in Arakawa Under the Bridge, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, Space Dandy, Mawaru Penguindrum, Natsu no Arashi, Tatami Galaxy.
* Kana Nishino. Featured in Soul Eater, Naruto.
* Maaya Sakamoto. Featured in too many anime to name, but probably mostly famous for Wolf's Rain's Gravity.
* OreSkaBand. Featured in Bleach and Naruto.
* Supercell. Featured in the Monogatari series, Guilty Crown, Black Rock Shooter, Naruto, Magi.

All of them.  ;D

Best attempt to organize a list with band name in bold, followed by genre and how they might be related to Fanime (or best known)

* Pillows - Alt/rock - FLCL soundtrack
* One ok Rock - Rock/metal - Ruroni Kenshin (live action) and Captain Harlock
* Baby Metal - Rock/metal - No anime relation, but would be awesome
* Perfume - J-pop electronic - No anime relation
* Uverworld - Alt/rock - Blue Exorcist soundtrack + more
* Utada Hikaru - J-pop - Kingdom Hearts + more
* Rip Slyme - Hip-hop/rap - Gantz OP
* Dragon Ash - Rock/Hip-hop/Reggae - Battle Royale movie song
* Base Ball Bear - Rock/pop - Bakuman, Gintama + more
* Boom Boom Satelites - Electronic/pop - Kiznaiver OP + more
* Porter Robinson - Electronic/dj - Anime and video game inspired show
* Asian Kung Fu Generation - Alt/punk - Full Metal Alchemist song
* Distant Worlds Symphony - Orchestra - Final Fantasy music performed with a full orchestra
* Kreva - Hip-hop/rap - I just like him haha
* M-flo - Hip-hop/pop - Appleseed: ex-machina
A lot of these are pretty unrealistic, but I would do everything in my power to attend Fanime if any one of these artists were performing.

A few of the more 'unique' ones are highlighted in red because they might bring a different feel to Fanime and broaden the fan base.

It really warms my heart to see so many people (on twitter) asking for them to come to Fanime. I was worried that people wouldn't know who they were in this newer generation of anime-watchers. I think that the announcement of FLCL 2 coming out next year might have revived some interest? The good news is that what may have been holding them back from touring in the US for years seems to have been resolved last year (a certain former guest bassist supposedly had some visa issues), meaning there might actually be a shot at getting them! They haven't been able to come here since 2011, so it'd be great to have them make their US comeback at Fanime.

Definitely second Perfume, Baby Metal, Porter Robinson, and Utada Hikaru!
