Adelaide, Australia- June 12th, 2013- The largest of its kind in Australia, the Adelaide Anime and Video Game Convention (AVCon) is taking place from the 12th of July to the 14th 2013. Over the three days, AVCon is ready to take on the expected 20,000 attendees by having every square inch of The Adelaide Convention Centre dedicated to its performance. However, AVCon would be nowhere without its passionate fans; by catering for its legion of Anime, Video Games and Costumed fans, AVCon’s success draws on an extraordinary fandom. This is a fandom that dedicates themselves to a year of video game practice, costume creation and pop culture watching to show off their skills at AVCon.

To help entertain the fans, AVCon has employed the expertise of its guest line up.
