I'm gonna go against the grain here and say that the lack of J-music was...a positive thing ^_^'
Don't get me wrong, throwing a few well-known animé intros or some songs loads would know is fine, but I've found that in the past there have been far too many Japanese songs on and I end up getting bored.
In other words, the parties were some of the best I've ever been to at an animé convention ^_^ So thank you!
First couple of paragraphs are exactly the reasoning behind the parties being as they are.
Playing a convention is like playing a HUGE wedding reception - it's so diverse, you can't just play one genre and expect everyone to be into it.
The "But you can here western music anywhere!" argument doesn't work because it assumes the music is the main point, which it isn't - making sure a bulk of the people who are attending the event are enjoying themselves is the intention.
Anyway, all of Ayacon's parties are dedicated to J-Music - I'll be checking them all out to see how things are going. If I see something working it'll likely be implemented into Kitacon's future party schedule. Always looking to improve things!
I do admit there was a lack of anime tunage shenny however do NOT change your style, seriously , friday and saturdays listing were the best 2 fucking parties ive ever been too
