Doki Doki 2017

I can’t believe this Saturday will be at Doki Doki Festival!

DOKIDOKIPROMOTIONAL2017

I’m very lucky to have been invited to perform once again at the Japanese Festival in local Manchester. I will be creating the soundtrack to the day in amongst the amazing enka, martial arts, drumming and idol performances. I will also be part of the After Party hosted by the Manchester University Anime Society with live music, games and competitions (you might see me having a go including my sets!)

Tickets are still available to buy online until Friday and then can be bought on the door.

There will be a plethora of artists selling their custom artwork, maid cafes, sellers with the most kawaii accessories, chibi characters, your favourite anime collectibles, official merchandise and more to buy. There’ll be so many competitions including language, gaming, and fashion/cosplay (show off all your hard work on your outfit!). Also there’s lots of panels and speakers on both modern and traditional aspects of Japanese culture, including Shinto, Buddhist and Summer Festivals in Japan, Ghost in the Shell and Japanese Calligraphy demonstrations.

And there’s so much more to see and do in Doki Doki, you really need to check out the full website of events or the Facebook page to stay up to date with everything.

Not only is Doki Doki such a fun place to be, proceeds will be donated to their supported charity, Aid for Japan, to continue the long-term help needed for orphans from the dreadful 2011 Tohoku disaster.

The programme can be found here and here is the map of the festival so you can quickly navigate to your favourite stalls, talk with experts and find that perfect cosplay photo location

I will be posting as many photos and videos as my phone battery and data allowance will allow!

What do you want to have as the soundtrack to your festival? Have you got any requests you want to hear in my sets? Leave a comment below or post on my Facebook page

NYE 2014 / New Year’s Day 2015 Playlist

Sure it’s a little late to listen to whilst counting down to midnight, this still sounds just as good to listen to at the start of 2015.

This is a hour’s work of great music with a selection of my favourite party tracks and songs from 2014.
