One dayer will bring a variety of international talent, old and new to the Tokyo waterfront venue.
Spread over four stages, including an outdoor live stage with a stunning view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Azabu Juban skyline, the Audio Festival will take place Saturday July 17th.
Organised by Eggworm productions in conjunction with a load of the usual sponsors, the festival features a mixture of harder techno in the Womb Annex, live dance pop acts outdoors and the banging electro noise of the Made in Glitch crew who also host their own area. The Motor City is in full effect with headliners including a very rare Japanese appearance from Octave One, who are celebrating the 20th anniversary this year for their highly influential live act, 313 native DJ 3000 and another of the Midwest's favourite adopted sons, minimal techno pioneer Daniel Bell. Japanese legends Ken Ishii and Takkyu Ishino should prove that the home side is no slouch either. Outside, DJ Krush will be soundtracking the epic skyline with one of his technically superb live shows for the 'sunset set' while the San Franciscan house meister Doc Martin plays live in the Aquarium. For a taste of French electro, Teki Latex and Orgasmic's new duo, San Pellegrino Thermal Team are in the loft with their Tokyo equivalents, perennial party-starting favourites the Dexpistols.
