Japan Nite

Tokyo, Japan

2017 Official Showcase Presenter

SXSW staple, the coolest Japanese indie rock, punk and obscure culture extravaganza. Since 1996, Japan Nite has been showcasing the upcoming talents of the nation’s music scene at SXSW!

Year in, year out, it’s one of the safest bets, and it doesn’t even matter who’s on the schedule. For sheer variety and weirdness, Japan Nite continues to be the one place at SXSW where you could park yourself and know you’re going to see three or four things you’ve never seen before. – Michael Bertin – Austin Chronicle –

Date: Friday, March 17
Venue: Elysium (705 Red River St.)
Lineup: RiRi, Srv.Vinci, ANALOGIX, HANATO CHIRURAN, CHAI, The Walkings
