In a land clogged with attendees, artists, dealers and cosplayers, where does one turn for comfort, relief and entertainment? Stage Zero, of course! Stage Zero is located smack dab in the middle of the main hall for your temporary entertainment needs. Watch AMVs, watch performances or listen to fantastic music, while you plan on which panel to attend. Have a seat and watch the wackiness, or participate in games for prizes while you wait for friends to come back from the bathroom. The Stage will be your information nerve center to the rest of the convention by way of the talented staff. So don’t be afraid to take a load off your feet for a while and absorb the amazing that is Stage Zero!
