The Kitacon Prom has always been something of a formal affair but without wanting to enforce certain restrictions on people, we’d like to encourage everyone to dress up for this first half of Kitacon’s Sunday soiree, however you don’t have to be in formal outfits to attend.
The Road to Redemption will be a slow affair to start off with live performers and later in the evening DJ Shenny leading the charge into the final hours. The Prom will also feature the vocal talent from previous Kitacon’s as Hollie Caddock and Lucy Belle Guthrie join violinist Masa Futagami to perform live renditions of some beautiful music for you to dance too. After their performances we will be crowning the first King and Queen of the Prom.
As the night progresses, the cuffs come off as the final two hours countdown to the end of Kitacon. The aim of the last party is to bring everyone together and play the music you want to hear. The best of the weekends music compacted into one whole party.

Masa “Masa-kun” Futagami an electric violinist who performs in various Japanese culture related events in the UK. Most known events include MCM, Hyper Japan and Ayacon. Through music he wishes to return something to all those who have taken an interest in Japanese culture, as a result he wishes to play your favourite songs for you while also trying to prove that the violin is not only an instrument for only “classical” music.
Lucy Belle Guthrie
Lucy Belle “Lorelei” Guthrie has been singing on a semi-professional level since 2003 and has worked with numerous recording artists and her vocals have even appeared in “My Bed Is My Castle” on Mahogany’s “Connectivity!” album. Her vocals often lend themselves beautifully to ballads, which is why her soft voice is perfect for those Japanese slow dance songs.
