About  "The Bands Of Japan" Contest

Following on the success of our annual Gaijin Sounds contest we are proud to announce that this year we are producing a special free iPad version of this special issue to showcase the best music Japan has to offer.

Now more than ever the world needs to see a positive face of Japan. Towards that end we are opening up our competition to include "Japanese" bands as well as "Gaijin" bands. No matter what language you make music in or what nationality you are – we encourage all musicians in all genres to enter.

"The Bands of Japan" will be the culmination of our search for the very best bands that are active in the Japan music scene today. Music, videos, profiles and photos of the winning bands will be featured in the iPad edition along with information about the special "Bands of Japan LIVE" event to be held in late 2011.
