Dakumeow made a name for herself in Perth over the last few years and has quickly been gaining a reputation as one of the most popular DJs at the Neko Nation events. A regular on the Neko Nation tour well known for her cute and fun Vocaloid sets but in Canberra, she’ll be creating a big bang and bringing the fire from the world of K-Pop!

Kreuzberg

Representing the local talent will be Kreuzberg, a super talented individual who has made a name for
himself in the alternative club scenes in Canberra and Sydney. His sets have been wild and varied
from sweet 90’s pop to hard-hitting goth industrial, however for Gamma.Con he’s going even further
back to the retro sounds of chiptunes and synthwave to kick start Neko Nation @ GAMMA.CON.

Everyone knows that all good parties have free food right?  Plus what good anime doesn’t have fan service, so why not have both?!  The catgirls play a vital role as the hostesses of Neko Nation and do much more than just satisfying the sushi appetites of our guests.  When they aren’t serving sushi they dance, sing along, socialize and make Neko Nation lots of fun for everyone!

Our catgirls aren’t some random booth babes or your average promo girls, they watch anime, play video games and when they’re not serving sushi they want to party like all our other guests!  Our specially selected catgirls play a huge part in making Neko Nation a magical night for everyone to remember!
