ANIBeat Idol Stage

Attention idol fans!

We’re excited to have Idolspace return for Otakon 2022!  We have so much planned for this programming this year that we can hardly believe it ourselves!

This year we are bringing back the ANIBeat Idol Festival and adding an exciting new “Now Presenting!” festival. Throughout the convention our seasoned Idols will not only be performing but helping to teach new or aspiring Idols to put their best foot forward (or backward depending on your performance). 

If you’re an experienced 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! We also hope you’ll consider hosting an Idol “How to” Workshop or Talk. There’s no better way to take part in the idol community than by sharing your knowledge.

Performance slots are also coming back this year! If you’re focused on growing your own idol image, sign up for the performance slots as well as the festival slots to allow your talent to really shine. We’re also accepting cosplay idols and dance groups for this special programming this year. We will have performance available slots for 15, 30, and 60 minutes. Please let us know in your submission how long a slot you would like in your description of your event.

If you’ve always wanted to see what the Idol life was like or become an Idol yourself, take the leap and sign up to be an “Now Presenting!” Idol. Or if you just want a peek into this wonderful world consider attending some of our informative sessions about what it means to be an Idol. 

Please also 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 in the Idolspace. Submissions without at least one accompanying video will be declined.

If accepted, you will be contacted to provide more information about your performance and work out all the details.
