Calling all Anime fans, Anime Festival Asia 2014 (AFA 2014) is set to invade Singapore next month! The star-studded festival is the region’s most established experiential festival for Japanese Popular Culture and saw more than 80,000 visitors last year.
Besides exhibitions which will showcase original anime merchandise, cosplay lovers will see South-east Asia’s best cosplayers fight it out in the annual AFA Regional Cosplay Competition.
The highlight throughout the three-day long festival (from Dec 5 to 7) is none other than the I Love Anisong Mega Anime Music Festival segments which will be held every day with a different artiste line-up – a total of 13 artistes altogether.
Catch anisong (anime song) artistes Eri Kitamura, DJ Kazu, Yui Horie and angela on Dec 5. Among them, angela returns once again after having last performed at AFA 2013 in Singapore.
So mark your calendars and make your way down to the festival for three full days of fun!
