Tokyo X Brooklyn is a two day music, food and culture festival happening at Brooklyn Expo Center on May 13 – 14 that is “bringing together two cultures, Tokyo and Brooklyn, featuring an exciting lineup of musicians, a variety of culinary favorites, innovative technology, artists, and performers. The concept is to bridge the gap between Brooklyn creativity and craftsmanship and Japanese pop culture.”
Day 1 (5/13) features Blonde Redhead, Anamanaguchi, guitarist Miyavi, Mother Feather, DJ Logic and the Taiko Masala Thunder Drummers. Day 2 (5/14) features Miyavi again, Antibalas, plus New Optimism (Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto), The Freaky Baby Daddies, as well as DJ Logic and Taiko Masala Thunder Drummers again.
Single day tickets and two-day passes are on sale now.
