I know there are 100% electronicon from ESPRIT and there was one around LA back in October but I never actually been to one. Have any of yall been to one and would you fly out to one if it did occur?

Haven't been to a vaporwave concert (I live in America, in general there isn't a lot of independent electronic music being played live), but I would go see Auragraph if I could, but that's just not close enough to me to justify it. Once I'm done with school, I would go to stuff like 100% Electronicon if there are enough artists I like and the event has production value. The one Vaporwave artist I would fly anywhere to see live when I'm older is Blank Banshee:

The closest I've been to was Neon Retrofest back in 2018. More synthwave but imo taps into the same spirit what with with its carefully crafted aesthetic and lineup. It was dope.

100% Electronicon looks sick af though. I would've gone had I known about it sooner fml

アメリカにはエレクトロニックコンサートはあまりありませんか?数年前に行ったときは、毎週エレクトロニックコンサートがあったようです。それ以来人気がなくなってきたと思います

Young Americans are not fond of electronic music. Rap music and moodier pop is what's in style at the moment here, and that audience gets many concerts since (besides vinyl) no one is interested in purchasing music licenses (just about everyone streams with a subscription now).

As for the mainstream era of Electronic in America, that has been fading since young people aren't so into it. Yes, there is the occasionally big artist/s that will play here, such as Justice and Deadmouse, but they need to be popular enough to make it worthwhile here. Most electronic can't achieve this though, so the rest usually happens as the occasional club/bar performance in the densely populated and progressive cities.

I don't live in those types of areas though, so the best I can get without boarding a plane is one of the more mainstream DJ acts playing at a festival a few hours away. Not all of these are my thing either, and here the title of a 'DJ' is too broad in my opinion (I would be quite lucky to see someone actually mixing and playing live House music for instance).

I'm so fundamentally different from people who listen to that which causes fear from attending those events

While I understand the sentiment, I don't think vaporwave is homogeneous enough to think it's rational. Sure you will encounter stereotypes but it's not like metal or punk where the audience is way more defined both internally and externally.

Vaporwave does not seem appropriate for concert music
