JAM Project is the first of several featured artists to appear as part of the Anisong World Matsuri at Otakon!
This is JAM Project’s fourth collaboration with Otakorp, Inc. JAM Project made its US debut at Otakon 2008. They returned for Otakon Music Fest in 2012, and made a brief appearance at Otakon Vegas 2015 in conjunction with the Anisong World Tour Lantis Festival in Las Vegas held nearby. This will mark their first return to Otakon proper.
We are incredibly excited for the opportunity to host the Anisong World Matsuri and to have JAM Project as the anchor for the show. 2017 will be our first year in DC and it's always nice to have old friends at a house warming party. We can't wait to show you everything we have in store.
- John Gluth, Convention Chairman, Otakon 2017.
