The "exPoP!!!!!" is a free admission monthly event started by CINRA in 2007 and taken over by NiEW in December 2022. With the desire to "create an opportunity for people to experience firsthand the expression of artists, rather than just introducing their words and information in text as web media," we have continued to hold events with free admission with the help of sponsors, event venues, artists, and related parties. We are always looking for new talents to be the first to meet and be introduced to them. The event is known among music fans and the music industry as a gateway to encountering new talent, and to date, more than 600 musicians have performed at the event. Please come and feel the dynamism of raw sound and emotion, which is different from the music you hear in your headphones.
