London’s Largest Japanese Music Label Teams Up With the UK’s Biggest Japanese Pop Culture Event for the Ultimate J-pop Party

JPU Records is proud to announce that it will be organising the official HYPER JAPAN after party on Saturday 26 July 2014. The event, celebrating all things J-pop, will take place at Namco Funscape in County Hall, Westminster, from 7pm and will be entirely free entry for all.

Four performance artists will be joining the event. Coming all the way from Japan will be cute punk rockers Broken Doll and ‘KimiCos’ duo YANAKIKU, plus British talents Kero Kero Bonito and Kelsey Ellison. There will also be popular tracks from Japan spun by JPU Records to keep the party atmosphere buzzing, as well as arcade machines, a licensed bar, snacks, dodgems, bowling and more available at additional costs.

JPU Records will also be exhibiting at HYPER JAPAN in Earls Court between 25-27 July, selling a wide range of CDs and merchandise from Japanese rock, pop and metal artists. The label will also be collecting ‘get well soon’ messages from fans of its artist SPYAIR. The pop-rock band, which has music in The Amazing Spider-Man and anime series Bleach and Gundam, recently had to postpone tour dates due to vocalist IKE suffering from acute bronchitis.
