Animelo Summer Live is the biggest annual anime music festival, and this year, they’re ready to do it justice as they add three more big names to the artist lineup.

Animelo Summer Live 2013 will take place on August 23, 24, and 25. We already know 28 of the artists who will be featured this year, but now that AniSummer is stretching across three days, 28 isn’t enough, so the producers have revealed three more artists who will join the party.

Sachika Misawa

Sachika Misawa is a rising star who debuted as a voice actress with her role as Yuri in the anime Shangri-La. However, that’s nothing compared to her biggest job, the role of Kuroyukihime, the heroine of the hit action anime Accel World. She went on to voice the idol Arisa from the movie Toaru Majutsu no Index: Endymion no Kiseki and has sung the second ending theme of Accel World and a song from the Toaru movie

μ’s

μ’s (pronounced “muse”) is the fictional idol unit from Dengeki G’s Magazine’s idol project Love Live. The group has been releasing singles and animated music videos since 2010, but because of the anime series that aired this year, their popularity has skyrocketed, so you can look forward to seeing their real life counterparts performing at AniSummer this summer. Which songs do you want to hear?

The members of μ’s are Honoka Kousaka (CV: Emi Nitta), Umi Sonoda (Suzuko Mimori), Kotori Minami (Aya Uchida), Hanayo Koizumi (Yurika Kubo), Rin Hoshizora (Riho Iida), Maki Nishikino (Pile), Niko Yazawa (Sora Tokui), Eri Ayase (Yoshino Nanjou), and Nozomi Toujou (Aina Kusuda).

Last but not least, fripSide is a pop/trance duo consisting of the composer Satoshi Yaginuma (sat) and vocalist Yoshino Nanjou (who also voices Eri from μ’s). After Nanjou replaced the past vocalist in 2009, they released their first single together, only my railgun, which peaked at no. 3 on the Oricon Weekly charts. Last year, they celebrated their 10th anniversary with their album Decade and two solo lives in Tokyo and Osaka.

Furthermore, they performed the opening theme of the first and second seasons of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun, so fans can look forward to seeing fripSide perform songs from the anime live.
