Dates are announced for Hyper Japan 2015! There will be two Hyper Japan shows during 2015: Hyper Japan Festival in July and Hyper Japan Christmas Market in November.
Hyper Japan Festival 2015
Hyper Japan Festival will be 10-12 July 2015 at the O2 – a brand new venue for Hyper Japan! The event will feature Japanese food, J-pop and J-rock bands from Japan, Harajuku fashion, cosplay, anime, manga, traditional culture, martial arts, video games and workshops on stage.
A great new feature of the show for 2015 is a 3,000 capacity music venue in Building Six at the O2! The line-up’s not announced yet, but one of the best things about Hyper Japan is the programme of genuine live acts from Japan. Last year we enjoyed seeing Broken Doll, Koike Miyu and Joe Inoue with Diana Garnet.
The O2’s a great venue, so we’re really excited about Hyper Japan this year! Tickets will be available from March 2015.
Hyper Japan Christmas Market
The Christmas Market will be on 27-29 November 2015 at another new venue, Tobacco Dock in East London (one tube stop from Bank). Last year the Christmas Market was much smaller than the summer show, but this year they’ll be a similar size. We’ve never been to Tobacco Dock, but it looks like an atmospheric venue!
Watch our Videos!
To see what it’s like at Hyper Japan, watch our videos from the Christmas Market last year! There are two parts: Part 1 is a montage from the show, and the story of our weekend as exhibitors, and in Part 2 we asked people at the show: What’s the best thing from Japan? A difficult question!
We also have a YouTube series called All the Best Stuff is from Japan, about funny and interesting stories from Japan. Subscribe to our channel to catch the next episode!
