The next stop on Mixmag and Budweiser's BUDX world tour will take place August 29-31 in the bustling neon metropolis that is Tokyo, Japan.
For three days, we will host a series of panels and workshops that will explore subjects like innovative Japanese fashion, Tokyo's film industry, media design, '90s club culture and much more.
In addition to these engaging talks, each night will see performances from some of Tokyo's most renowned selectors along with a handful of esteemed artists from around the world.
Having already locked in UK beat conductor Mura Masa, Japanese techno authority Takkyu Ishino, beloved LA-based artist Mija and the creative force that is Seiho, our second wave of talent ensures that the event will be a showcase the likes of which Tokyo has never seen.
For our final international headliner for BUDX Tokyo, we've locked in one of dance music's most influential artists, Tiga. The Canadian showstopper and his Turbo Records imprint has been providing clubland with two decades of musical and comedic brilliance that just won't quit. His silky productions and innovative label curation continuously showed us that Tiga James Sontag has the game on lock.
To top things off, we've tapped three of Japan's most exciting rappers, all of whom have proved themselves lethal lyricists in the their country's hip hop scene. First up is the 21-year-old young gun and High School Students RAP Championship standout WILYWNKA (pronounced Willy Wonka) who released his debut album 'Sacula' last year. After that, we have the fast-rising and trap-influenced MC Leon Fanourakis whose taken the game by storm with his eccentric flow and style. Finally, we invite Japanese hip hop legend ANARCHY - the R RATED Records label head and RUFF NECK associate who has been molding and pushing his country's hip hop scene since its inception.
