From the East, STGCC has invited three renowned DJs from Japan, each highly-regarded for their work in the different realms of Japanese music – Anisong, Touhou and Vocaloid. Inu, D.watt and sasakure.UK will take to the stage on the first night of the two-day convention with a two-hour music showcase that will bring the house down. Spinning the latest hits from popular Japanese games and anime, this STGCC DJ Night will be the first in Singapore to feature all three music genres on the same stage.

Three multi-talented artists from the West complete the first release of star-studded pop culture personalities announced by the organiser, Reed Exhibitions. They are Humberto Ramos, who is well acquainted with Spiderman, Alex Solis, the father of “The Famous Chunkies” featuring oversized superheroes, and Simone Legno, the creator of the popular tokidoki brand.
Bringing together the best of pop culture from the East and West, STGCC 2014 takes place on the 6th and 7th of September at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Marina Bay Sands.

“The show has matured over the past six years, and we have amassed a very loyal following of fans from Singapore and the region by bringing together vibrant international content from the East and West for a regional audience,” said Ms. Rita Magnus, Senior Manager, Pop Culture Cluster.

Taking over the helm of Southeast Asia’s leading pop culture show for the first time, Ms. Magnus, who has been the show’s Western content programmer for the past three years, has fresh aspirations for the show. “With a strong list of pop culture personalities and attractive offerings for our fans, we aim to put together a stellar content of substantial mass appeal and pave way for the show to be elevated to the next level.”

Last edition, the leading pop culture show in Southeast Asia concluded with a record-breaking attendance of 40,000 local and regional visitors over a galvanising weekend of pop culture combo.
