What is AVO?

AVO Magazine (since 2012) can be seen as an online magazine with regular updates about events in the Netherlands and Belgium, and publishes reports, interviews, reviews and fun informative articles. The focus for AVO is on Japanese music, which might be easy to see when you look at the website. The website publishes mostly in Dutch, but wants to become bilingual to reach a bigger audience.

In the past AVO has worked together with artists as HITT, Ryo Fujimura, Loverin Tamburin, BACK-ON, REMNANT, Haruka, X Made Alcoholic Santaclaus, GanglioN, ZWEI, Satsuki, ADAMS, Chii Sakurabi, LOKA, KAMIJO, heidi., Kaya, Calmando Qual, OROCHI and more. These collaborations resulted in reports, interviews, but also concerts organised under the name AVO Events & Promotion.

AVO has good contacts with conventions in the Netherlands and outside, cosplayers, and other creative people. These connections give AVO the opportunity to share a lot of news, interesting interviews, reviews and reports for the readers of AVO Magazine. Promoting less known artists has always been important for AVO as well as artists who got their breakthrough, to expand the world of the readers of AVO Magazine more and more.

In order to maintain the presence of the name AVO in the music world, it is necessary to grow and look for serious candidates who want to work for us and proudly publish articles on AVO Magazine. Writing for AVO Magazine gives you experience in how to write creatively, how to look for information and promotion. You will be welcomed in a team of enthusiastic writers and photographers who inspire each other!

Did you know that it all started out with AVO Forum on May 16, 2003? AVO also organise concerts and festivals for Japanese musicians, for example AVO J-Rock Festival (2013) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of AVO and AVO J-Music Festival (2018) to celebrate the 15th anniversary of AVO.
