Sasakure Festival Vol. 1

Sat Mar 24, 2012 Womb
Shing02

Time Out says

Something's probably getting lost in translation with this self-styled DIY music festival, the name for which translates as 'hangnail' – because the artists taking part are so cutting-edge they can't be ignored, apparently. We're still trying to figure that one out, but the lineup does look pretty tasty, with sets from beatmakers including Fragment, Quarta330 and recent Time Out interviewee Eli Walks. However, the highlights promise to come from underground rap icon Shing02 and Okinawan MC Kakumakushaka's live team-up, and a collaboration between techno producer Why Sheep? and art pranksters Chim↑Pom. And with nearly as many VJs on the lineup as there are performers, it should give your eyes a thorough workout, too.
