Penang, - The biggest anisong event in Malaysia, Penang Anime Matsuri (PAM), returns to the state of Penang on 7 & 8 July 2018 at SPICE Convention Center. This is the 4th year for the annual event which aims to unite Japanese pop culture lovers in Malaysia and beyond.

The event focuses mainly on Anime, Cosplay, Games (ACG), anisong, cosplay and Japanese pop culture. Anisong is a genre of J-pop music which centers on the theme songs from Japanese Animations (anime) and cosplay is the act of dressing up as a popular public figure.

Great success over the years
Started in 2015, PAM has grown to be a fan-favourite and demand for more content has increased. Last year the event saw 42,000 attendees over 2 days.This year the event hopes to bring in more than 60,000 J-pop culture lovers.

New venue and new zone
In a bid to accommodate the increasing amount of visitors, the venue has been moved to The New SPiCE Convention Center. The concert will take place in Ballroom 1, while Ballroom 2 & 3 will house exhibitors, creators hub and food vendors.

A new zone at the rooftop will also be opened up to attendees. Decorated to match a real Japanese festival, here fans can enjoy the night breeze catch a special firework showcase. Fans can also watch free movie screenings and chow on goodies from our various food vendors. This zone is free to public and will not be ticketed.

Exciting stage content

The stage will turn up the heat with music performances, cosplay workshops and panels, cosplay competitions, special anime themed programs, artiste appearances, illustrator showcases, movie screenings and more!
