When it comes to Western anime conventions, especially those in the United States, there’s perhaps none more dedicated to scratching the itches of the ever-steady J-core music community than Anime Central. For years now, in collaboration with the team at Attack the Music, they’ve been bringing out some of the biggest artists in the scene for their annual Synergy party, and this year is no exception. Perhaps one of their most stacked lineups of all-time, Synergy 2018 collides the talents of EDP and Attack the Music’s roster for a party unlike any other.
Calling on the insane talents of EDP and Bemani legends Kors K, Ryu , and BlackY, as well as the Attack the Music Japanese all-stars KO3 and Relect, you’re absolutely not going to want to miss Synergy 2018. Additionally, just as the cherry on this cake, Attack the Music is calling on the talents of the incredible murAta Yuzi to VJ the whole event. Having seen all of these artists a number of times here in Japan, I’m still envious that they’ll all be together at an event that I’ll be missing, with every show proving a party of its own.
Taking place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, just 30 minutes from Chicago, Anime Central 2018 will be running from May 18 until May 20. More specifically, however, Synergy 2018 will be operating on May 18 (Friday) in the Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.
