Otafest Idol


  1. There is a maximum of 18 entries for Otafest Idol.
  2. There is a list of songs available at http://www.otafest.com/idolsongs.htm.  This is the list of instrumental tracks that will be provided by Otafest.  If you choose one of these, then you do not have to provide lyrics or music of your own.
  3. If you want to perform a song not on the list, then you must provide your own lyrics & music.  You must have an actual karaoke/instrumental track.  Singing a cappella (without accompaniment) will be allowed.
  4. The song must be related to anime, video games, or anything that fits with these genres of music (J-Pop, J-Rock, etc.).
  5. There is no restriction with regards to language.  You will not be penalized (or rewarded) for choosing a song in a certain language.
  6. There will be two microphones, so you can perform either solo or in a group of two.  No larger groups will be allowed.

 When you decide on a song, please include the following information:

 Submit this information to shansen@otafest.com (make sure that the word “Karaoke” is in the subject line).

 We will attempt to give everyone their first choice.  If two (or more) people choose the same song, then we will look at their #2 (and possibly #3) songs.  You will be informed if we have to change your song.  Preference will be given to those who entered first.

We will have a cut-off date of Sunday, May 13th.  No entries will be accepted after this date.  Emails will be sent out to everyone at this point to confirm the song that they have selected.  Once confirmed, no changes will be allowed.

 The ordering of competitors will be randomized, so the first entrant will not necessarily be the first performer.

 If you’re unsure if the song you want to perform will be permissible, or if you have any other questions, feel free to email me at shansen@otafest.com.
