Help Bring SAWA back for Omni Fandom Expo 2019!
[ 80 days, 2 hours ago - 09/23/18 01:09 PM ]

Help Bring SAWA back for Omni Fandom Expo 2019!

SAWA had such a good time last year that she wants to come back to Omni Fandom Expo 2019 for another performance! Her concert last year was an incredible success and a lot of fans really want to be able to see her come back and have another chance to be on stage again!

We need all her fans help to bring her back to the US to see her again!

  • 15 VIP Tickets sold = SAWA flies over from Japan and performs a 30 minute concert. Special Meet & Greet with SAWA for all VIP pass holders. Your name up on the website as a Sponsor for SAWA.
  • 30 VIP Tickets sold = SAWA and her guitarist fly over from Japan and the concert is upgraded to 60 minutes.
  • Special other perks will come along as more VIP tickets are sold.

Sawa was born as a daughter of a family that has run a traditional Japanese public bath in Nagoya since approximately 1885. She attended NIS (Nagoya International School) from the ages of 4 to 7. Her Father’s love of chanson and canzone music piqued her interest from a young age, instilling a love of music in her. From the ages of 16 to 17 she received schooling in Virginia. While she was there, she had her first experience singing for a live audience at a culture festival. Even though the songs were in Japanese, many in the crowd were singing the chorus by the end of a song. At that moment, she got more interested in the power of music.

In 2007, SAWA made her debut as a singer and lyricist with the release of the game "The World Ends with You", produced by Square Enix. A few years later, she worked on the soundtrack for the Japanese animation "K-ON! the movie". Her work is not limited to anime and games, as she also sang for the popular Japanese comedians COWCOW in their series called "No Surprise Exercise”. In 2013, she succeeded in experimenting with traditional folk songs. As a member of the WA-League, she had a stage in Peru and Ecuador to celebrate the 140th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Currently she is a member of the Square Enix produced band project, The Death March, as well as her original band SAWAS PHOOL. The first mini-album release of SAWAS PHOOL was in December 2014!

Exhibit Hall / Studio Omni (Artist Alley) are now open for applications!
[ 136 days, 2 hours ago - 07/29/18 01:07 PM ]

The Omni Fandom Expo 2019 Exhibit Hall and Studio OMNI (Artist Alley) areas are now OPEN for applications from all vendors, artists, podcasters, conventions, and fan groups!

Anyone looking to purchase booths or tables are required to sign up for a Merchant Account on the Omni Fandom Expo website if they do not already have one. After that, merchants MUST select and pay for their booth on the Omni Fandom Expo website only. No mail / email / Facebook requests will be allowed.

For those curious what Studio OMNI is, it is the Artist section at Omni Fandom Expo which is otherwise known as “Artist Alley” in most venues. This area is a showcase where one can expect to find original creation and “art form” style items and merchandise. Merchandise here is hand made and designed by each artist from original concept fan art to jewelry creations that feel like miniature works of art. Comic artists are also highly encouraged!

Omni Fandom Expo will be approving Exhibit Hall and Studio OMNI applications on a case by case basis as they are submitted in order to ensure quality and diversity to attendees. Once a merchant/artist has been approved, they will then be notified and able to select their own booth space through the Omni Fandom Expo merchant system on OmniFandomExpo.com. Please note, however, that any Studio OMNI tables that are not paid for within 14 days of reservation will be released back to the public! Make sure you secure your place early!

Click here to see the Merchant system!

For any questions regarding the Exhibit Hall or Studio OMNI, contact Omni Fandom Expo Staff directly through the “Contact Us” section of the Omni Fandom Expo website.

Thank you and see you at the con!
