Yatsui Festival 2017
Yatsui Ichiro is both a comedian and a respected DJ who holds his own festival each year presenting an eclectic mix of bands, idols and stand up. Calling upon his many friends and connections in both the entertainment and music industry and taking place over 12 different venues in Shibuya, this year’s event is more ambitious than ever before. If you’ve never heard or Yatsui, or you don’t really “get” Japanese comedy, that’s not too important as the line up features some of the hottest underground and original performers in Japan, from indie rock to idol hiphop and everything in between. If you love live music, high energy performances and a touch of weirdness then this is a fantastic opportunity to discover a unique festival right in the heart of the city.
Our recommended acts include Maison Book Girl, BiS, Tempalay, Panorama Panama Town, Dotsuitarunen and Not Wonk. Check the website for a full list of performers and participating venues (including Club Asia, O-East, O-West, Loft9, Sound Museum Vision and more).
