We are excited to announce our Friday concert along with some exclusive opportunities! This year NekoCon will be the first to host VOCAMERICA: The Western VOCALOID Concert Project!
The VOCAMERICA Concert Project is a live holographic musical event featuring English and Western vocal synthesizers.
The goal of the Kickstarter is to help fund the further production of the VOCAMERICA live concert. This is the first attempt to bring the Western and English VOCALOIDS to the public through a live performance!
Make sure to check out the Kickstarter, because there are some exclusive, limited NekoCon perks up for grabs – including the “Full Access Reward Package” which includes a three-day/two-night stay at the SOLD OUT Embassy Suites by Hilton Hampton Roads Hotel, Spa & Convention Center along with other rewards!
The application period for PRO-ROW tables are now OPEN! Please remember that pro-row applications are JURIED only. The application will be open through Tuesday, May 3, at 11:59 PM EST, so ACT FAST! Make sure to review the artist alley page and as there have been a few changes made since last year.
Please keep in mind that only members of NekoCon are eligible to attend. All events and areas of the convention center are for members only. NekoCon memberships are non-refundable and non-transferable. This means that you will not receive a refund if you are unable to attend NekoCon.
