Enthusiastic fans singing along to the tunes by the guest DJs and Utaites.

aniSONIC Countdown x J-Festival 2017-2018, a unique countdown event for followers and fans of anime, anikura (Anisong Club), cosplay and Japanese pop-culture, took place on 31 December 2017 at D’Marquee.

aniSONIC Countdown’s DJs and Utaites.

Artistes and Utaites – DJ Caesar, utaite duo CLEANERO, utaite Matsushita, utaite Underbar, cosplayer/DJ Kuroneko – were flown straight down from Japan to whip up the excitement at the aniSONIC Countdown. Singapore’s very own DJ Dano also graced the stage with her heart-pumping spins.

Fans were also given the opportunity to get autographs from their favourite DJs and Utaites prior to the Countdown event.

The event was partnered by ANILOVE!!, a monthly cosplay-friendly DJ-Party in Shibuya. Helmed by the popular DJ Caesar, ANILOVE!! Features DJs that specialise in anime, seiyuu and vocaloid music and attracts an estimated crowd of 300-400 every month.

For those that weren’t the partying type, aniSONIC Countdown had something for them as well. The J-Festival, which takes inspiration from the typical Japanese matsuri (festival), is a free access area right next to the aniSONIC Countdown that is catered to foodies and Japanese culture fans.
