The Anime, Cosplay & Games (ACG) scene in Singapore (and for regional visitors!) is poised for more excitement as SOZO (organizers of Anime Festival Asia) is bringing Creators Super Fest (CSF) to Singapore for the first time! Previous iterations of CSF were held in Indonesia so it’s pretty exciting that Singapore will get to experience an event that’s remarkably different from AFA itself.
So what makes CSF different?
Drawing inspiration from Anime Festival Asia’s (AFA) Creator Hub, AFA CSF Singapore 2023 will feature an expanded Creators Market where local and regional creators get to showcase their work and offer their independently-produced merchandise for sale. This includes not only artists booths, but also an expanded Cosplay Hub where attendees can meet up and coming cosplayers from around the region alongside some of their local favorites.
Attendees can also learn from industry experts in many different areas such as cosplay, art, music, photography; catch the latest trends in the creative sphere, take part in exciting competitions, and connect with like-minded enthusiasts.
For those hoping to get a foot into the fast-paced creative industry, they can visit industry booths hosted by specialised creative schools, while gleaning insights from experts sharing tips and experiences at panels and workshops, at the all-new Creators Lab Stage .
Of course entertainment is the primary goal of events and the Creators Super Fest has entertainment in the boatloads with special guest performers ready to rock the stage. So far they’ve announced Mindaryn who has songs featured in popular anime like That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest, LadyBeard who brings crazy energy with his kawaiicore performances as well as a number of local and regional performers – we can probably expect more announcements to come later.
Creators Super Fest in Singapore will be happening from 22nd to 23rd July 2023 at the Singapore Expo, from 10am to 8pm. Tickets are available starting from $19 per day (excluding ticketing charges) from Ticketmaster – https://ticketmaster.sg/activity/detail/23_afacsf2023
