Do you have to be 18 or older to enter?
Unless stated, all Neko Nation events are 18+. All our events take place in licensed premises and you will be required to have photo ID for entry.
What sort of ID do you accept?
– Passport (any nationality)
– Australian drivers license
– Proof of Age (state or territory of the event only)
ID must be current and not expired. There are no exceptions to these three forms of ID, student ID’s, birth certificate and mecha licenses do not count, as per Australia liquor licensing laws.
Are there any all ages events?
We do not currently do all ages events at this stage, we have done all ages events in the past and we are looking into the possibility in the future.
What does +bf mean?
This refers to a booking fee charged by the ticket seller. Wherever possible Neko Nation aims to use ticket sellers that eliminate the use of booking fees to be more upfront with our ticket fees, however this can not be done in cities where the venue has the ticketing rights (Brisbane and Sydney).
What do I wear to Neko Nation events? Do I have to cosplay? Do I have to wear cat ears?
Neko Nation encourages all our guests to cosplay (we’re the only club in Australia where it’s encouraged!) and to dress up if possible to help create a unique atmosphere at our events. It is not mandatory but we do encourage it with prizes up for grabs. Our dress policy is highly open minded and is similar to that of an anime convention. Please keep in mind that this is not a cosplay competition at a convention and as such fragile cosplays, those that are difficult to move around in or ones that can be quite warm are not recommended and should only be worn at your own risk!.
Are we able to bring weapons as part of a cosplay?
Generally no weapons are allowed, generally Neko Nation has similar rules to cosplaying at convention centres, it is however better to leave weapons at home since the lower lighting and people dancing around does make weapons even more hazardous than they would at a con. If you must, if it is made of weaker materials (no metal or wood, plastic and cardboard would be acceptable), it doesn’t look to threatening (guns and swords are unlikely, wands and death notes are acceptable) and can be holstered while moving.
How can I apply to work for Neko Nation?
Whenever we’re hiring we put the call out on our Facebook groups for every city, so joining there is a great way to stay in regular contact as we post things relevant to those cities. Once the applications are open, please read the requirements and send your application to us through the contact page on our website. Please read the instructions carefully before applying to ensure that you can be considered for a role
Can I apply to be a catboy?
Of course! We’ve had catboys before and it’s always had a great reception, so don’t feel like you can’t apply with everyone else!
What genres of music do your DJs play?
All kinds! Each show depends on what DJs are available, but we generally stick to Japanese music, K-pop, anime, gaming and EDM, though we can have plenty of others as well! If you’d like to know what genres will be played at a show you’re attending it will be on the Facebook event page. We do generally aim to cater to a large variety to keep everyone happy and to reward those who are open minded with their music tastes.
Where can I buy tickets?
Tickets sales are usually sold in different places depending on what city, but we always say on the Facebook event page and our Facebook page where they’re available. Generally tickets are sold online and sometimes we will have physical outlets for some shows, while other’s it online. It is recommended that you buy tickets to an event, while Neko Nation aims to get venues big enough to accommodate everyone, events do sell out on the odd occasion.
How often do you come to my city?
We generally put shows on 3 shows a year in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, 2 shows a year in Adelaide and one show a year in Melbourne
How quickly do you respond to messages or e-mails?
Generally e-mail responses are replied to within 24-48 hours. Please do not expect replies on show weekend due to working at the event, please try asking on Facebook events or groups to get a last minute answer.
