Neko Nation Adelaide

Neko Nation will be kicking off 2016 in Adelaide, the mega anime party is set to rock out for it’s 5th year in what’s considered as one of the anime and gaming capital cities of Australia.  Neko Nation is an event inspired by the like of Mogra, Alchemist and other anime nightclubs of Akihabara, you don’t need a plane ticket to Japan, as it’s happening right here in Adelaide!  (Although if you do have a plane ticket to Japan, have lots of fun, Japan is pretty awesome!)  ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

Neko Nation Adelaide is the only Neko event to feature DJ’s across two rooms on two floors, downstairs we’ve got the world of anime music and remixes, modern gaming remixes, J-Pop, K-Pop, Bubblegum Pop and more!  While upstairs, we’ll be teaming up with Adelaide’s leading Gaming party event, Joypad, featuring a wide variety of awesome gaming and chiptunes (more details on Joypad below!).  Dance your heart out on two floors and if you need a break or energy, inspired by the maid cafes of Akihabara we’ve got delicious free sushi from Sushi Train served by our amazing catgirls and catboys!  Chill out with anime and gaming cocktails, plus we’ve also got video games and card games such as Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens, it’s the ultimate anime party in Adelaide!  (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

Featuring Joypad

We will be combining forces with the mega Adelaide gaming event JoyPad in association with retrospekt.com.au.  Joypad has run many events over the last four years, initially running events solely focusing on chiptunes and retrogames, Joypad has continually experimented and broadened it’s scope to including live music acts, themed videogame nights, gaming tournaments, and a variety of DJs playing music across a variety of genres. At any given event you might hear a mix of chiptune, synthwave, electro, mashups, anime/J-pop, dance, breakbeat, and gaming tunes…and of course music just to make you LOL.

JoyPad recently were involved in coordinating AVCon After Dark with a number of renowned interstate live acts, as well as hosting our semi-regular events showcasing some of Adelaide’s up and coming nerdy, synth, chiptune, and dance live acts and DJs. JoyPad looks forward to again showcasing some of our favourite local geeky music talent, as well as consoles for you all to play on the night (it’ll be SEGA this time around).”

Neko Nation has been a huge part of the Adelaide anime and cosplay community with it’s first event taking place in 2011 and Joypad has been a big part of Adelaide’s gaming and chiptune community since 2012 and it’s the first time that two mega forces have combined together for one spectacular event.  Neko Nation Adelaide will be kicking off what’s looking to be an exciting and awesome year for the 2016 anime and cosplay community and Neko Nation definitely won’t disappoint with an absolutely incredible show in store!   ☆~~ヾ(>▽<)ノ。・☆
