Have you been checking out our Special Guests Page (under Programming)? Otafest is very pleased to present our Special Guests for 2013! We've got more Special Guests this year than ever before, with a couple more to come!
For music guests, we have Umbrella, from Osaka, Japan (with J-Rock North Promotions), and Kieran Strange from the UK via Vancouver! DJ Arnell will be spinning at our Saturday night dance, and Midnight Taiko will be performing on Saturday afternoon!
Synaptic Chaos Theatre has more improv related programming happening all weekend than we can shake a stick at, and Otafest is very pleased to present Carol-Anne Day, Lucas Gilberson and Brendan Hunter, voice actors home grown right here in Calgary. Did you know that Cardfight Vanguard was dubbed right here in Calgary, featuring Carol-Anne, Lucas and Brendan? Make sure you check out their panels this year!
Approved panels have also been updated to March 16 - panelists please take note, deadline to apply to host a panel is coming up on March 31!
Main Events Programming and Themed Rooms have also been updated!
Have you heard about Echkardt Gramatte Recital Hall? It's one of the finest recital halls in Western Canada, and we've got it for the Sunday of Otafest for Otafest Idol, Kieran Strange's Accoustic Performance, and a musical performance by Umbrella! It's a little further away from the rest of Otafest (closer to Hotel Alma), so do make sure you know where it is!
Stay tuned for our next special guest, who will be announced next week!
