Well, I’m excited! The acts haven’t all been announced yet, but one pair I do know will be performing there are the wonderful Hibiki Ichikawa and Akari Mochizuki. No Asian event would be complete without some traditional Japanese folk music!

This event sounds really interesting, not just for the Japanese parts but also for all of the other aspects of Asian culture that will be on offer. Of course, the food will be a big attraction, and I’m sure I’ll be heading straight for the sushi!

    • Absolutely! I’m still trying to decide if I’ll be there on one day or for the whole weekend (Sat and Sun). Depends if I can find somewhere cheap to stay! 🙂
