Over a decade ago a small group of university students who
were enamoured with Japanese animation created AICON or the Anime Island
Held originally at the University of Tasmania it soon grew out of control and moved to Wrest Point and began to incorporate video game content.
In time a second event was spawned called MAICON (Mini AICON) to service fans in the northern sections of Tasmania.
As movies like Avengers: End Game and TV shows like Game of Thrones now rule the world it became obvious that a new event should emerge that takes into account the vast world of media and hobbies outside of anime and gaming (while still keeping those on board of course).
Thus TasPop was born, running equally in both the North and the South it aims to build an even bigger community and a more amazing pop culture experience than anyone on our little island has ever experienced before!
The dates and venue for TasPop North and TasPop South are not yet public but will be announced very shortly along with pricing and accessability details.
