JMW is Tokyo's biggest grassroots style annual international music showcase festival and convention, covering all kinds of music genres, industry sectors and regions. Last year JMW involved over 300 artists from 20 countries at 40 venues, with over 10,000 attendees, and this year it will be even better.
JMW is now inviting artists, DJs and music industry people based overseas to apply for this event and join our convention. * If you are an artist or DJ, you'll need to pay your own way, find supporting income from another source, or we can send you an official invitation to use in trying to get a grant from your national or local government. * If you're music industry, you'll be able to join JMW convention as a speaker or participant, for networking and learning about how to break into this exciting market.

-- Merits for Artists -- We will try to help each visiting artist perform in at least 3 events at JMW during 9-18 November. It's a showcase festival so you will not be paid to play, but there may be ways to sell merchandise or help sell tickets to generate income. You'll have chances to meet music industry including labels, distribution, event companies and venues who may be able to help fund your future trips or releases in Japan. You will also get exposure to various audiences and media to start creating your own fan-base here. Also playing in Japan - the world's second biggest music market, is a good way to highlight your achievements and gain extra attention back in your home territory, as well as being a lot of fun.
-- Merits for Music Industry -- Meet hundreds of relevant music industry people at various networking industry sector and music genre events, join seminars and find content or partners for deals in each others' territories.
