Anime NYC has announced that they are bringing Lantis Matsuri 2019 to NYC. Lantis Matsuri is a special concert which features popular “anisong” performers. The event will take place on November 15 in the Special Events Hall at the Javits Center in NYC.
Anime NYC describes Lantis as follows:
Lantis is a Japanese music label founded in 1999 focused on anisong music. It has published two decades of hit music, including themes from Azumanga Daioh, Bungo Stray Dogs, Food Wars!, Free!, GIRLS und PANZER, Genshiken, THE iDOLM@STER, Love Live!, Lucky Star, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Rozen Maiden, and Violet Evergarden. Lantis Matsuri 2019 at Anime NYC is a continuation of Lantis’s popular Lantis Matsuri concert series, which has welcomed some of the biggest performers in Japan. The 20th Anniversary Lantis Matsuri was held across three days in June in Tokyo and showcased over 70 musical performers from all over Japan.
Lantis is also the lead organizer of the Anisong World Matsuri concert series, which took place last year at Anime NYC. This year’s Lantis Matsuri is a continuation of this celebration. It is a tribute to Lantis’s storied history and a look ahead into the next evolution of anisong concert.
The following performers will appear at the event:
Guilty Kiss from Love Live! Sunshine!! (Aqours sub-unit featuring Aika Kobayashi, Rikako Aida, and Aina Suzuki)
Anime NYC has hinted that there may be more performers for the anisong event.
Lantis Matsuri 2019 tickets go on sale in August and there will be both standard and VIP tickets. Anime NYC badges will not be required to attend the event. Ticket prices and info will be available at a later time.
Convention attendees will be able to meet the Lantis Matsuri performers at certain panels on November 16, Saturday. Convention badges will be required to attend those panels. Signing information for the performers will come at a later date. Signings will also take place at the convention.
