Tokyo International Music Market (TIMM) is launching a showcase of 15 artists through three days of free livestream concerts on YouTube, between November 4–6. The annual convention which normally serves as a marketplace for overseas buyers to get together with the artists is now taking steps to move the event online this year.
You can expect some of the rising artists from Japan to join the line-up, such as the rock bands FOUR GET ME A NOTS, and GOOD BYE APRIL, or the soul unit FAITH. There are also some prestigious anime acts like Yoko Takahashi (Evangelion), and MADKID (Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari), MindaRyn (Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko), and more.

Tokyo International Music Market (TIMM) is the one and only music market in Japan that offers Japanese music a platform for overseas expansion and international exchange in the rapidly changing global music industry.
The main components of TIMM are the Marketplace/Business Matching with overseas buyers, the Business Seminars, which are very popular every year, and the Live Music Showcase offering an opportunity for musicians to appeal directly to overseas buyers.
This year’s 17th TIMM will be held online only.
