I don’t live in Brno. Where can I arrange accommodation?

We’re trying to arrange an option in nearby gyms. We have also prepared a list of cheaper accommodation options in the city. We are, however, not arranging accommodation for visitors, every visitor needs to arrange his own accommodation. It is not possible to sleep at the venue – it is necessary to arrange accommodation outside of the venue!

No, you don’t need to. If you think you’ll be able to stay awake for the whole convention, it’s up to you.


Is there an age limit?

There is no age limit for the visitors. Younger visitors might need parent consent to participate in various contests – we will let you know in advance. In case of an inappropriate part of programme for younger audience, we will be checking age at the entrance.


I don’t know anyone, can I arrive alone?

Don’t worry, Animefest is a great place to meet people with similar interests.


Can I arrive in cosplay even if I’m not entering the contest?

Of course. The more people in cosplay, the better the ambiance.
