Stage: 9:30. One of our favourite new unsigned acts from Japan. 33Insanity’sVertebra promise to tear up London with their first overseas show. Helping them do so is model and vocalist Nozomi, bringing a surreal mixture of beauty and brawn to band’s sound.
Stage: 8:45. Get ready for a dose of sunshine pop, direct from Tokyo’s most fashionable distract; Shibuya! miette-one is the solo project of sibuya-kei indie producer Sayuri Hashimoto.
Stage: 8:00. “There is a reminiscence like of Pavement, Lou Barlow, SONIC YOUTH, PIXIES, and Beck, also the Velvet Underground, which is her roots… chords running through lo-fi sounds in a some what alt / grunge manner, pierced with a unexpectedly strong graceful voice” – HMV review
Stage: 7:20. Fresh from appearing on stage at Japan Matsuri in Trafalgar Square earlier this month, Jun Okada returns with her guitar in hand to serenade the crowds with the her sweet vocals.
