Rexxam Hall (Kagawa Prefectural Hall)・Grand


The Asian Cup A Cappella Competition marks the beginning of the annual Vocal Asia Festival (VAF). This competition encourages A Cappella teams in Asian regions to be more polished and sophisticated, making a chance for the teams to observe and admire each other.


The 2019 VAF will invite five international masters of A Cappella to serve as judges, and will also invite the champion from the 2019 VoiceJam A Cappella Competition (USA) as the demonstration team. Hopefully, this competition will ignite the flame of enthusiasm for the professional A Cappella teams in Asian regions, and also show the audience the professional music of A Cappella performances to create a better art environment for the music of A Cappella.

A Cappella is about singing wherever we go!


Like every year in the past, VAF's most popular event "Aca Day" will bring us tons of joy again in Kagawa Prefecture and Setouchi Triennle. This time, we will sing on the land, on the sea, and on the island! In different venues such as the Marugamemachi Green in Takamatsu City and on the islands like Shodoshima, Teshima, and Takamijima, groups from all over the world will use their own voices to show their own cultural characteristics and unique charm, accompanying with the installation art exhibits!


Let's follow the wonderful sound of pure vocal music and enjoy the cheerful summer in Setouchi!
