Just as every other year, Japanese music and entertainment label Avex will be organizing "A-Nation" with its artists. This year, however, the label is set to organize "musicweek", spreading various artists across themed days.
Earlier this year, U-Kiss was already noted to have been added to the line-up but more recently another three Korean groups were revealed. SHU-I, a group which originally debuted in Korea in 2009 with "Bomb Bomb Bomb", is set to release its first Japanese full length album in July. A-Jax, on the other hand, has yet to release their Korean and Japanese debut, but were added nonetheless. Joining these boy groups, YG Entertainment's 2NE1 is set to perform on the concert as well.
2NE1 is set to appear on August 3rd, on "Verbal presents... 'Oto Matsuri'". The girl group already worked together with rapper Verbal (m-flo) before, assuming they'll be doing a collaboration stage on the said day.
On August 9th, U-Kiss, SHU-I and A-Jax will be joining the "Asia Progress M" stage with various other Japanese artists including co-ed group AAA, male solo singer Daichi Miura, male group Deep and many more.
