Summer season is concert season. That means that the Wander Crew is gearing up for a lot of festivals, concerts and tours in the next few months. While one of our editors is heading to Outsidelands in San Francisco, and another is covering San Diego festivals, we are all letting our Sanrio-loving selves get super excited for Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival, launching in Los Angeles on June 11.
For those of you who are unaware, Hello Kitty isn’t just for little girls anymore. We loved getting to know all of Hello Kitty’s universe at Hello Kitty Con earlier this year, and her friends of all ages came together to enjoy the fancy free fun that comes with Hello Kitty and her fantastic friends. Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival will be a great way to dive right back into that world.
Going beyond a traditional live stage show, Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival offers a unique multi-component walk-around festival atmosphere for Sanrio fans of all ages.
If you are looking for a Keroppi purse, a Badtz-Maru blouse, or even some Pochacco, you’ll be able to grab one in between the live interactive shows, photo ops, and a few Sanrio surprises. Fans are invited to put on their finest Hello Kitty gear, and enjoy all of the elements that the Friendship Festival has to offer, such as:
- DJ-driven dance segments with KRU HK dancers.
- Hello Kitty and friends “in concert” with both characters and live singers and KRU HK dancers.
- Larger-than-life Hello Kitty product photo opportunities.
- Hello Kitty temporary tattoos.
- Lounge areas to relax and charge your mobile devices.
- Fashion Lane – view high fashion couture pieces inspired by Hello Kitty and friends.
- Art Gallery featuring works by contemporary artists.
- Hello Kitty retro product and Japanese heritage displays.
- Pop-up Mini Shopping Kiosks.
- Hello Kitty Origami workshops.
There are various ticket options available, including a VIP Platinum Bow experience that lets you take photos with Hello Kitty herself!
