ANIBeat Idol Stage

Attention idol fans!

We’re excited to have Idolspace return for Otakon 2023!  We have so much planned for this programming this year that we can hardly believe it ourselves!

This year we are bringing back both our main show, the "ANIBeat Idol Festival", and our special show for new idols, the "Now Presenting...Idol Festival"!

If you're an experienced independent/original idol ready to take the stage, we encourage you to sign up for the ANIBeat Idol Festival. We're bringing it back bigger and better than ever! And if you're just entering the world of idols, and think you're ready to take the stage, then consider making your debut with the next generation of independent idols in the "Now Presenting...! Idol Festival!"

Idolspace Stage Performance slots are also coming back this year! If you’re focused on growing your own idol image, sign up for a performance slot for your own stage. In addition to accepting independent/original idols, we’re accepting cosplay idols and dance groups for this special programming this year.

Please follow the links below to apply to all of our Idolspace programming options!
Make sure to read the form carefully and include links to videos of you performing the skill you will be presenting at Otakon in your application. It does not have to be from a live performance- but must show us what you are wanting to showcase at Idolspace. Submissions without at least one accompanying video will be declined.
All Acceptance, Waitlist, and Rejections letters will go out no later than: May 14, 2023
