Looking for the Ota Factor (formerly Otafest Idol)? Click here.

The Idol Festival is a multi-day event that showcases Idol J-pop and K-pop dance cover groups. This is a fun and professional platform to perform, and is a fantastic opportunity for exposure!

Idol Festival


This is a group event. Due to time constraints we will not be able to cater to performances by individuals, however, a group may spare some of their allotted time for a solo performance at the group’s discretion.

Groups may be matched with one or more other groups to fill a one-hour time slot, with content length being 20 – 30 minutes.

Allotted content length is subject to change at the discretion of Otafest Staff.

Audio equipment will be supplied with a 1/4″ (headphone) jack. You must supply your own music and device. Tech staff will take care of the sound equipment and stage, but are not responsible to play music.

Any questions can be directed to Launa Delisle at Launa.Delisle@otafest.com.


Applications are closed.

At this time, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone Otafest until May 21-23, 2021. Please see our official announcement here.
