Now into its fifth year, this year’s Hyper Japan is planned to be bigger than ever! Titled the Hyper Japan Festival, this year’s event will be taking over the o2 from July 10 til July 12th. Also marking the first event branded as the Hyper Japan Festival, this summer’s event will feature the regular staples of previous years, such as the “Eat-Japan area”, “HYPER Game & Anime Park”, “HYPER Kawaii area” and “Culture Area”.
The Festival will also feature a greater focus on live performances and musical acts, with the 3,000 capacity ‘Building Six‘ within the o2 being dedicated to hosting a variety of acts and performers over the weekend. As for the rest of the event, such as exhibitor booths, food stalls, and vendors, the large Open Quarter area will be filled with different things to see and do during the event. This year’s event looks to be the largest ever, which just goes to show how far it’s grown since the first event back at the Truman brewery just a few years ago.
Also along with this announcement, more details were revealed about the Hyper Japan Christmas Market, which is being held in London’s Tobacco Dock venue from November 27th to 29th
