Madman Anime Festival 2017

Madman Anime Festival 2016 was an incredible weekend in Melbourne celebrating anime and Japanese culture. Everyone had an amazing time, which is why we’ve decided to bring the festivities to Perth, Brisbane, and Melbourne in 2017!

Get ready for a huge range of spectacular international guests, exclusive exhibits, screenings, cosplay, fan and community events, Japanese food, the Mai-Wish! Maid and Butler Café, our awesome Akiba shopping zone and much more! More information (including tickets sales, volunteer applications, and Creators Zone applications) will be coming very soon, so to be the first to hear about it, follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and here on our website.

Ask and you shall receive! We heard Perth fans loud and clear when they asked for MadFest to make an appearance on the west coast, and we’re extremely happy to be bringing it to you in 2017.

As the first event in the 2017 Madman Anime Festival calendar, you can expect to see our favourite parts of the 2016 festival plus some new exhibits, guests, screenings, heaps of fan events and many other awesome things! We know Perth anime fans are some of the most passionate in Australia, so we’ll have plenty of things happening to get you involved. Keep your eye on the website for more information soon!
