What is VOCACON?

VOCACON is a 1-night, 2-day event that was arranged by enthusiastic fans of voice-synthesizing technology, and the various forms of media and fandom deriving from it (MikuMikuDance, figurines, cosplay, fan-made concerts, etc.). It is sponsored by a committee headed by NezMozz and celebrates VOCALOIDs like Hatsune Miku, IA, Yuzuki Yukari, etc.; UTAUs like Kasane Teto; and CeVIOs like Sato Sasara. VOCACON 2016 will be the third event of its kind.
