The Electone Festival was first held in Japan in 1964 and was originally named “All Japan Electone Concours”. In 1974, a new division “International Electone Festival” became part of the Festival. Hosted and held annually in many different countries, the Festival was renamed and today, the formal name of “Asia-Pacific Electone Festival” is established
