With a total of 21 performances taking place from a number of idol groups throughout the duration of the three-day event, it’d be fair enough to suggest that this could be a great time to discover a few new groups. The entirety of the event is priced at 1500 yen, with the only exceptions to that price being screenings of your name., as well as the film premiere events. Those interested in making their way over to the event can find further details via the official website.
