In the meantime, it has been decided that they will organise the Summer edition of HYPER JAPAN around the same time that it normally takes place, but in 2021. The postponed event is currently scheduled on the same weekend in 2021 at the same venue.
In a message the organisation thanked everyone for their patience and support: “In this time of uncertainty, we recognise everyone is facing unparalleled challenges. Naturally, we have been affected by the ongoing situation, however, in spite of this, we are doing our very best to bring HYPER JAPAN Festival back to London in July 2021.”
