Omar-S and Kenji Takimi will help launch Sankeys TYO on April 23rd.
Sankeys TYO will be the Manchester-born clubbing brand's first foray into the Japanese market, setting up a 500-capacity venue in Daikanyama, a neighbourhood in Tokyo's bustling Shibuya ward. As Sankeys explain, "our mission is none other than the revitalization of the maturing Tokyo dance music scene."
Omar-S, whose latest album dropped just last week, will be stepping in to headline the launch party on the 23rd. It's his first Japanese show in five years. Local heavyweight Kenji Takimi will also feature on the bill.
