This year we will be accepting applications from Japanese style idols and cosplay dance groups. Idols and Dancers may apply to do original and/or cover performances. Solo and Group performers are welcome.
In the past we focused on bringing 2D to real life as close as possible. That is still a -main- focus for our event but as the needs of the community continue to grow and change we would like to welcome more types of idols to our stage. The current goal for HolMat IdolFest is to become an unforgettable event where those in the idol community bring out their biggest and flashiest, from costumes to performances, as EXTRA as possible!
If chosen, performers will receive one guest pass per member to Holiday Matsuri 2019.
Our staff intend to work closely with the chosen performers to create custom stage lighting and background videos for your performance. You may also choose to create your own Background Video.
