The new event “Social Musician Festival in the Spring of 2015” will be held on April 19th, it’s a “Presentation + Live Performance” style which aims to think about society, at the same time to enjoy the music. Musicians perform “Presentation” about their own social contribution activities such as feelings, aspirations and visions for the society, and play “Live Performance of Social Song” based it as theme, each 5 minutes.

Musicians with high aspirations that “I want to change better the society”, in order to continuously activity, also need monetary reward. Especially young musicians don’t have enough money for activities, and sometimes they pay the ticket quota out of their own pocket. So, as a new attempt from this time, the whole ticket sales will be paid directly to artist. It is aiming to support the ongoing social contribution activities and musical activities of artists, with participating in the festival and supporting directly artists financially.

The following musicians are sakura, Ayaka Fukui, Rei Muramoto, Mai Ujiie, Yuuka, cocoro, Nohoko Miyazaki, ottsue, Ami Haldeman, LiLya, Emmy, Maria, Marino Ueda and Shizuka Kazami.
