Purpose: to connect music artists with the audience.
Created as a network of bars/ cafes that are customer and artist friendly. This means that they want to be able to have live music performed for their customers.
*Meaning: the meaning of that term is kinda interesting. to “horu” means “to throw away”. “mon” is short for “mono” which means “stuff”. so, “horumon” literally means, “the stuff you throw away” (like chitlins). working class people in japan learned how to make that stuff tasty.” (thanks Ryan)

The size of the circuit location: enough space for there to be artists and customers.

Artist requirement: Artists need to willing to perform in non-standard environments, be creative and respectful.

Locations may be anywhere. People don’t only live at major stations. Music shouldn’t be held to that limitation either.

Need: Locations to support the circuit.
