I'm off the week after next to attend Australia's largest anime and Japanese Pop Culture Event - SMASH! which will be held at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney on the 8 - 9th of August - ticketing info here.
It's my first time visiting Australia and I'm very much looking forward to meeting our comrades over there.
This years SMASH! guests include violin virtuoso Hiroaki Yura, cosplayer KANAME and REIKA, Japanese band LOVERIN TAMBURIN, voice actor Noriaki Sugiyama, and as part of the AFA's I Love Anisong X SMASH! collaboration, GARNiDELiA, DJ Hello Kitty, kz (livetune) and yanaginagi will be performing too.
My panel times are as follows.

How many of you going?
