Starting in 2009 as a unique type of music festival in a culture where one has never existed, KMC has established itself as an annual event and a destination for international musicians looking to perform in Japan, as well as a model for other internationally minded music festivals in Japan.
Since 2009 KMC has attracted artists of various genres from all over the world to come to the unique city of Osaka and share their culture & art and join an ever growing community of talented artists.
KMC 2020 (Sept. 18-20) will continue that tradition and also continue to provide opportunities for artists to expand their reach around the globe.
Introducing both Japanese and non-Japanese artists performing in the Kansai area.
