Taico Club ’13

Sat Jun 1 - Sun Jun 2, 2013 Kodama no Mori, Nagano Prefecture

Time Out says

Long one of Japan's better dance festivals, Taico Club put on an unusually strong showing in 2012 – Fuji Rock aside, it was probably our favourite music festival of the year. Can the 2013 edition repeat that success? The programming is as eclectic as ever: techno devotees like Ricardo Villalobos (who's practically Taico Club's patron saint), Zip and Magda are joined by the likes of bangin' Warp Records producer Clark, indie darlings Of Montreal, saxophone colossus Colin Stetson and Diamond Version, a collaboration between avant-garde electronica vets Alva Noto and Byetone (with added help from Japan's Atsuhiro 'Optrum' Ito). Also look out for local festival faves like Denki Groove, Rovo and Zainichi Funk. Here's the complete lineup:

Cero, Clammbon, Clark, Denki Groove, Diamond Version + Atsuhiro Ito, Eye, JETS (Jimmy Edgar + Travis Stewart aka Machinedrum), Kishi Bashi, Takeshi Kubota, Machinedrum, Magda, Moodman, Nick the Record, Of Montreal, Polaris, Prefuse 73, Rovo, Sambomaster, Colin Stetson, Tycho, Ricardo Villalobos, XXYYXX, Zainichi Funk, Zip

Held at the mountainside Kodama no Mori campsite in Nagano Prefecture, Taico Club is within relatively easy striking distance from Tokyo, albeit more convenient by car than public transport.
