Island Music Festival 2018

10:00am – 9:00pm
Free

Island Music Festival, a celebration of island music, dance, food and culture! This year’s festival will feature representatives from Hawaii, Okinawa and the Pacific Islands with its Polynesian culture. We will bring the islands to Odaiba for two special days. Bonus: Former Sumo Ozeki Konishiki will help coordinate the festival!

The events aims to showcase the many Pacific islands, along with its traditional and new music—a combination of popular Hawaiian and Okinawan music, dance along with Polynesian culture. Fiji, Tonga, Tahiti and Maori culture from New Zealand will be among those featured.

There will be food and drinks from these many island nations, as well as from Okinawa. Take a short trip to Odaiba to witness and enjoy this unique festival. Entrance is free and it should be a great time for the whole family.
