AnimeCon 22nd Edition


We know we've kept some of you waiting and we'd like to thank you all for your patience and understanding. Organising a con with all of us volunteers remains a challenge no matter how big the convention gets. Not only do we have to deal with our day jobs, but we also have been struggling with people falling seriously ill. We ask of you to be patient once more as organising and announcing are indeed taking a bit longer than usual.
Despite our attempt to try and fit AnimeCon's 56-hour festival in Rotterdam, we felt that the venue and our format did not match. Furthermore, the feedback of our visitors also weighed heavily into the decision to change venues once more.
Therefore, the 22nd edition of AnimeCon will be postponed until 2021, because not only do we need the time to adjust and prepare for an amazing 22nd edition, we also feel that this free time could be a valuable period after some of us have fallen seriously ill. We’d rather postpone and organise an amazing convention.
So what about the difference between AnimeCon and AnimeCon Classic? 
AnimeCon is aimed at any and all (Japanese) pop-culture fans with lots of vendors, extensive game room, a huge variety of food and drinks, concerts, lectures and competitions of all kinds. AnimeCon Classic is our 56-hours continuous convention with more exclusive events, selected vendors, cozy bars and a richer experience all together.  
You already know that AnimeCon Classic is to be held on 5-7 june in Almelo 2020 (though we are keeping an eye on the Covid-19 news) and the date for AnimeCon Classic 2021 will be announced at the Closing Ceremony of Classic 2020. 

But now, finally the J-POP Foundation can announce: 
AnimeCon 2021 at De Broodfabriek in Rijswijk, 11-13 June 2021. 
De Broodfabriek (The Bread Factory) is in easy reach of public transport, has several hotels at walking distance (or public transport distance), has shops and restaurants nearby, has a lot of atmosphere and most importantly, we can host all of the day and night programming that AnimeCon should have. 

Do you have questions, or want more details about the new festival and venue? We will be online on Discord tonight at 20:00 / 8PM GMT+1!
