“a-nation” is a concert held by Avex Entertainment, who annually holds this music festival concert with several well-known artists. Since 2002, Ayumi Hamasaki has been known to perform the closing of the concert. However last year, TVXQ performed the ending performances for the first time in her place, greatly surprising the music industry.
Other K-Pop acts who will be participating in this year’s a-nation include SHU-I, A-JAX and 2NE1, who will all participate in a-nation’s “Music Week.”
