Meet ALYS.

Born on 10 March, 2014 – this blue-braided virtual singer is already a veteran of over ten musical festivals across Europe. ALYS will make her UK debut at HYPER JAPAN Festival 2016, where she will take to the stage screen at the HYPER Theatre to perform a selection of songs from her debut album ‘Éveil’ and more!

Her performance lineup will feature numerous popular songs such as Sous cette pluie or Hajime Ni, both in French and Japanese. As a surprise to her fans in the UK, a new song will also be introduced for the first time! As a further surprise, guitarist Lightning will accompany ALYS on stage!
