The word "INSPIRATION" means a person or thing that inspires, stimulates, or ignites the
heart.
Music Town Sound Market, in collaboration with Naha City's live music venue Output, will
host the international event "INSPIRATION OKINAWA 2024".
By gathering the coolest and highest potential music and culture, we will transmit positive
energy from Koza, Okinawa to a new generation.
The first two artists to be announced are H3F, whose outstanding taste in music has made
them popular not only in their native Thailand but throughout Asia, and Kengo Kakudate of
Yogee New Waves, who is currently in a recharging period as a band but continues his
ambitious solo activities. Both artists are performing together in Bangkok in March 2023.
More variety and the best lineups will be announced soon.
