The season of online concerts rages on as Japanese summer concert series a-nation goes online.
Previously featuring top artists from the region like BLACKPINK, Hitomi, AAA, BoA, SHINee, Kumi Koda, and TVXQ, a-nation is an annual concert series organised by Japan's biggest independent label, Avex Group. Held in various cities all throughout the country, the concert usually takes place every weekend of August. However, in the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, a-nation is taking their summer fun and performances online.
