Idolspace at Otakon

Calling all idol fans- Idolspace is the place for you!!
Wotagei (Cheer!) your heart out while you watch independent idols, cosplay idols, and related music and dance acts take the stage!

If you're an idol or related act we invite you to apply for one of our Idolspace Stage Performance Slots. This is your own 30-60 minute show where you're the star! We love to see a variety of acts, from independent idols and anisong coverists, to cosplay idols and dance groups. If you have an interactive music act-we want to see it!

But the spotlight doesn't stop at the Idolspace Stage-
We are very excited to present THREE Idol Festivals this year: The ANIBeat Idol Festival, Now Presenting...Idol Festival, and COSPlaylist Idol Festival!

The "ANIBeat Idol Festival" is our flagship event for experienced independent/original idol acts to take the stage. It's the event that started it all, and we're bringing it back- bigger and better than ever!
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!"
And if you're a Cosplay/2.5 D idol act, we welcome you to bring your favorite characters to life at our newest festival, the "COSPlaylist Idol Festival".

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 13th, 2024
