Heading to Longitude this year? Well, an Eastern-inspired surprise awaits your music hungry ears.
Heineken Sound Atlas Tokyo is set to take revellers on a vibrant journey, from Marlay Park to Tokyo – and back again!
This immersive experience, which was inspired by the City’s no-dancing (Fuehio) law, will bring staging, music and food together, giving festival-goers a first-hand glimpse at Tokyo’s colourful underground culture.
The no-dancing law, introduced in 1948, outlawed busting-a-move in small bars and clubs after the clock struck midnight. This ban on bopping brought thousands of people together to create an energy-filled, underground dance movement, in the world’s most populous City.
Music and dance aficionados heading to Sound Atlas Tokyo can expect:
*A noodle bar
*A ping pong tournament
*Be-spoke structures built to mimic Tokyo’s underground
*A Japanese-style Izakaya
Longitude kicks off in Marlay Park, Dublin, from July 17th – 19th
