Free Music Event “exPoP!!!!! 【Project Results】


This is a free monthly event started in 2007 by NiEW Inc. representative Mansaku Kashiwai at CINRA, Inc. and NiEW took over the planning, production, and management of the event as the organizer in December 2022. As a web media, we do not only introduce artists’ words and information in text, but we continue to hold events with free admission in the hope of “creating opportunities for people to experience their expressions firsthand as an experience. The event is known among music fans and the music industry as a gateway to encountering new talent, and we have collaborated with a number of sponsors.
