      East Meets West Music Festival welcomes you to a historical coming together of some of America's finest indie and metal music groups and Japanese American artists with Japanese idol goups straight from Tokyo, Japan! The two day event, being held on August 18th and 19th of 2018 at the legendary Chain Reaction in Anaheim, California, is poised to be THE cultural music sharing event in southern California for 2018!  Acts from Japan include: NECRONOMIDOL (HEADLINING), who previously visited the US on a successful tour run in December of 2017. NECRONOMIDOL is an ultradark Tokyo-based Japanese idol unit. Playing black metal, darkwave, NWOBHM and other eclectic genres of music NECRONOMIDOL's ultradimensionalchoreography and performance have blackened stages all across Japan.  W/SPECIAL GUESTS THE NECRONOMIDOL LIVE BAND! YANAKOTO SOTTO MUTE, who showcase some of the best guitar driven alt-rock idol coming out of Tokyo today. Lose yourself in their emotion laced performance as they glide across the stage in a beautifuly choreographed performance. This is their long awaited debut in America.  14TH GENERATION TOILET HANAKOSAN, a solo artist whose music can only be described as insane. She blends death metal and grind with her intense, bloodcurdling screams, all set to a visual display of her as the 14th incarnation of the ghost hanakosan, who is dressed like a school girl, covered in blood, wearing an eye patch, and a giant red children's backpack. Her live set is totally undpredictable, but in the past has included her throwing a variety of food and toys at people, spitting milk in people's faces, and picking one lucky fan in the audience to be covered in whatever food she has at her disposal. You will not want to miss out on her debut in America! Ticket sales are Advance $40 per day/$70 for both days. There are also VIP tickets available for a special meet and greet, which will take place from 2PM to 4PM on Saturday, August 19th. During the VIP meet and greet, you will have a chance to do CHEKIS with the idols as well as receive your special VIP merchandise. VIP TICKET SALES INFORMATION:  PURCHASING A VIP TICKET WILL ALLOW YOU ENTRANCE TO BOTH days of the festival, plus entrance into the Special VIP event, which is being held at the CHAIN REACTION from 2 to 4pm on Sunday, August 19th. Ticket levels are $100, $250, $500, and $1000 USD (see ticket descriptions for specifics of what each ticket offers). Only the three musical acts from Tokyo (Necronomidol/Yanakoto Sotto Mute/Hanako San) will be present during the VIP meet and greet. Furthermore, the order and level of the ticket you purchase will determine your entrance position in the VIP event. For example, if you are the very first person to purchase the $1,000 VIP ticket, you will be the very first person admitted into the event and will get everything first at the event that is being offered. If you are the 60th person to purchase a $100 VIP ticket, then you will be 60th in line at the $100 level, admitted after all the others who are above you in rank and in purchase order. So the faster you order your VIP ticket, the better your position will be when lining up to do chekis and receive all your items, some of which include very personalized, one of a kind items from the groups themselves.  Please note: We have limited quantities available of the $500 and $1000 ticket levels. Also, a word about behavior during the meet and greet: It goes without saying, but please understand that if anyone at the VIP event acts inappropriately towards the Japanese idols or their staff, including being sexually suggestive or overt in nature with their actions, words, and behavior, or aggressive in any fashion, or insulting in any way, you will immediately be ejected from the VIP event without a refund and possibly subject to criminal prosecution.  As such, security will be present, so please, use common sense when meeting the idols. ALSO, NO photographs are allowed at the VIP event unless being taken via Cheki system (if you don't know what this is, please ask one of our event organizers. They'll be happy to explain this to you). Please do not ask any of the idols for a selfie, or a two-shot, or try to snap a picture of them as they walk by you. Also, do not approach the idols in any way unless a staff is present and permission is given. This is standard practice in Japan. So if you see an idol outside the venue getting a breath of fresh air or walking to a convenience store, DO NOT talk to her or try to approach her in any way. You will be asked to leave the venue and the venue premises if you do.  Thank you so much for understanding and supporting our wanting to keep the idols safe and happy during their stay in America! ABOUT GIFTS:  Gifts will be happily accepted by the girls in each group. All of them would be extremely grateful, although none of them certainly expect anything from anyone attending the show. However, should you decide to be awesome and bring gifts, please consult with me personally (Derek) before your purchase so I can approve of the gift being given. If you are making a gift, please send me a picture of the gift at my email so I can approve it. Small to medium sized gifts ONLY will be accepted, as the girls can not take the gifts back on the plane with them when they leave America. And it should go without saying, but use common sense here as well when thinking about what to buy for the girls or what to make them. Absolutely nothing at all that is even remotely sexual or offensive in nature. Flowers and food are always okay, and if you want to do something special for the girls, it is totally fine, but please let me know beforehand what you plan to do.  Thank you so much for having an interest in Japanese idols! We hope that you will sincerely enjoy East Meets West Music Fest! Any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with me!
