The staff of MikuFan.com is incredibly happy to announce our attendance of Anime Central, the US’s largest midwest anime, manga and Japanese pop culture convention! On top of our first visit to ACEN, we’re excited to also be hosting our first convention panel on Hatsune Miku at the event!

You can join us in Panel Room 6 on May 22nd, 2016 at 11:45 AM in Rosemont, Illinois at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Be sure to show up early so you don’t miss out on a seat! We’ll be covering the Hatsune Miku phenomenon and community, trivia, and talk on the various ways you can become a Hatsune Miku content creator! There will also be special prize giveaways!

Also co-hosting the panel is DJ Revolution Boi, who I’m sure many of you have heard play music at various anime conventions, as well as Miku Expo 2014 in Los Angeles!

Revolution Boi was the first U.S. based Vocaloid DJ and remix artist. His work with music while he was in Japan has allowed him to become familiar with Vocaloid before Hatsune Miku herself even existed! His work over time has developed quite well, and he often partners up with other artists and DJs to create amazing collab works. Revolution Boi has been a growing inspiration to most vivid listeners international. Whether if, its Moe Garage, Happy Hardcore, or Exit Trance, RB will lay it down with a unique ability to keep the mood flowing. Revolution Boi’s ability to synthesize the music of this genre is unrivaled and he continues to inspire and influence other musicians alike. He has been requested to many live shows and clubs around the Midwest. His mixes are spread worldwide, to Canada, Japan, and even the UK.

We look forward to meeting Miku’s fans in the Midwest. See you on May 22nd! Don’t forget to add us to your Anime Central guidebook as a reminder: http://www.acen.org/guidebook-2016/
