at J-Pop Summit
For 2015, the events will be spread out in four different areas of the City: Fort Mason Center, Union Square, New People Cinema and the Castro Theatre. The festival consists of music, art, fashion, food, games, anime, and film, so you will find something interesting!
The main events at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion take place on the weekend of August 8 and 9, 2015 and runs from 11am to 6pm each day. There are also featured Festival events on Friday night as well. The full schedule is available on the website.
AOD has partnered with J-Pop Summit to create Anime Lane. Anime Lane is a special section of the Festival dedicated just for anime and manga vendors and artists. Essentially, it's a combined Dealer's Room/Artist Alley, all in one place.
All attendees for Anime Lane will need a tickets to the Festival Pavilion itself. Tickets are currently $25 for 1-day, and $40 for the weekend. These are available through the J-Pop Summit website.
In 2014, over 120,000 people attended last year's event, making it one of the largest street fairs in the City.
This year, with events in four locations, we are expecting a wonderful crowd enjoying Live Music, Shows, Contests, Movie Premieres, and a wide array of some of the best vendors in the area. Attendees enjoyed the Food Festival, Craft Booths, Anime Vendors, Live Bands, a Film Festival, and further performances at Union Square.
