Concept of the International Music Festival NIPPON
Four major pillars of the festival
The music festival is held in cities and not in resorts.
The reason is that we want the pleasure of listening to classical music to be part of people’s daily lives.
The festival concept consists of “four pillars” listed below, as the event for people with various experience levels in classical music.
Concept of the logo
To express a feeling of tradition and high formality, we arranged the four pillars around the center of the logo. At the same time, there is a forward-thinking attitude; the logo shows the modernity of the festival.
