Animasia Festival 2017
On 7th and 8th October 2017, Bordeaux Events will be welcoming the 13th Animasia Festival in Bordeaux Exhibition Centre.
Animasia, a festival dedicated to culture and Asian pop culture, is returning to Bordeaux this year and it’s even bigger than before! Over the years, this community project has become a major event in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and attracts more and more visitors every year, including the simply curious as well as enthusiasts of video games and manga culture. The highlights of the 2 days will include K-POP, J-POP, Yosakoi, Korean drumming and, of course, the cosplay competition.
There will also be themed spaces including a bookshop, board games, matsuri and autograph area, not forgetting the return of the Indie Game Factory for its 5th edition. This meeting place for international personalities from the independent video game and animation world will, this year, be hosting 20 development studios and their latest productions.
After hosting the event in Hangar 14 for three consecutive years, the Bordeaux Events team is delighted to support Animasia Festival’s move to a new location which is better suited to its current size. The event will be held in Hall 1 of the Bordeaux Exhibition Centre, where a surface area of 9,000m² will be transformed to transport visitors to the very heart of Asia.
The move promises an exceptional experience for the 22,000 expected participants, with the return of DOJO for martial arts and the presence of numerous big names in the world of manga.
