ANIME MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014
UPDATE: 20 MAY 2014 – THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED BY THE ORGANIZER. This is their official statement.
It is with much regret that ZI Communication hereby informs fans of anime and cosplay that the Anime Music Festival scheduled for 24 and 25 May 2014 at Istana Budaya has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.
We ask ticket holders to please hold on to your tickets until further notice. A new schedule of dates is presently being worked on and will be advised as soon as possible. Information will be made available via www.ezitix.net, www.ticketpro.com.my as well as on this page as soon as the same is made available.
We deeply apologise for any inconvenience.
Well with this announcement I know many will be sad. I myself am very disappointed and also very tired after putting so much time & effort into this. But recently to my surprise I’ve discovered that there might be a few people who are actually happy because of this come. Anyways, in the bigger perspective, I think this is a lost for Malaysia (as a country) & the community, regardless of which individual side you are on.
So now the counter for the number of Japanese music concerts to attend in Malaysia is back to ZERO for rest of 2014. Our best hope is probably still the annual JROCK no Tamashi! More news on that in the days to come 🙂 *Goes to watch X-Men: Days of the Future to recuperate*
Out of the ashes emerges the recently announced Anime Music Festival 2014 for Malaysia . It seems kind of short time frame… but by no means is the effort behind this production short work. For those of you who don’t organize events – a short time frame basically means “double time”, if you’re a musician 😛 but the work load is never a joking matter.
Istana Budaya once again opens its door to the younger generation, this time to the fans of anime, anime music and cosplay!
Appealing to fast-growing fans of the Japanese entertainment culture, ZI Communication Sdn. Bhd. will be presenting the ANIME MUSIC FESTIVAL at Istana Budaya on 24 and 25 May 2014 which aims to expose the vibrant genre to the public.
The ANIME MUSIC FESTIVAL will consist of 3 segments which include two concerts and a cosplay competition over the two days.
The two concerts will be featuring the world’s leading anime music and composers from Japan, they are Norihiko Hibino, Motsu, DJ Kaya, Eir Aoi, Hachioji-P and Yuyoyuppe which will be the major attraction of the Festival.
While the cosplay competition is open to all, and it will be held on the morning of 25 May culminating in the finals at the concert, managed with assistance from Cosplay Fun Malaysia, a local cosplay community. Participation for this cosplay competition is free!
Mr. Md Isham Ishak, the general manager of ZI Communications Sdn Bhd says that they are seeking to improve the key performance indicator in Budaya Istana, and this ANIME MUSIC FESTIVAL would help to open a new space to transform Istana Budaya’s stage to an international stage.
