The 12th annual Tokyo International Music Market (TIMM) was held October 20-22 at Grand Pacific le Daiba in Tokyo, boasting record attendance from international music labels, journalists, promoters, and industry professionals.

Special market showcases were held with mini-performances from up-and-coming acts Charisma.com, The SxPlay, and Akamaru Dash, along with seminars on export strategies for Japanese music, the future of streaming music content in Japan and abroad, and the role of sync licensing in promoting artist awareness.

Three nights of packed-house concerts were held at nearby Zepp DiverCity. The first night, October 20, featured a two-part concert by SEKAI NO OWARI, who decorated the entire live house in spooky, Halloween-themed imagery. The band presented such hits as “Dragon Night”, “Death Disco”, and “Starlight Parade”, adding a funny but frightening Nightmare Before Christmas-style animated short film where the members candidly discuss their true monster identities and their struggles to resist eating all the humans in their audience. The band also presented an array of amazing stage effects, including lasers, optical illusions, floating chandeliers, and English lyrics projected near the stage for the benefit of international fans.

On TIMM’s second night of concerts, the event presented a triple-header of rock bands, led by international favorites SCANDAL, supported by androp and FLiP. Closing the three-night series, rock band OLDCODEX performed a one-man show including their popular anime themes for Free!, God Eater, and Kuroko’s Basketball.
