The new Festival Hall building opened in spring 2013. Visitors are impressed by the red carpet extending from Nakanoshima Festival Tower's main entrance to Festival Hall's foyer with its grand staircase. The concert hall's acoustics have been described as "sound pouring on you from the ceiling." The much-improved hall, which is decorated in red tones, maintains the integrity of the old hall with its 30-metre wide stage and 2,700-person capacity, but has more comfortable seating.
