Red Bull Music Academy Weekender Tokyo 2013

The Red Bull Music Academy Weekender is set for a dazzling four day musical takeover of the Japanese capital. From November 1st to 4th, RBMA will host eight shows, conceptual performances and in-depth seminars in Tokyo’s galleries, museums and premier clubs.

Headlining showcases include a cooperative live performance of German deep house icon Henrik Schwarz together with the Young Symphony Orchestra of Japan, Damo Suzuki's Network, Ninja Tune's favourite dandy Daedelus, the Japanese master of abstract beats and experimental hip hop DJ Krush, a night of sophisticated beats with the likes of Gilles Peterson, FaltyDL, Alex Barck and more, as well as the EMAF Tokyo with lectures and showcases by electronic state-of-the-art musicians Yan Tomita, Fennesz and Diamond Version. Finally on Monday, everyone's invited to join the free Closing Party with Terre Thaemlitz aka DJ Sprinkles. For more info and tickets, head to the official website.
