Year in, year out, it’s one of the safest bets, and it doesn’t even matter who’s on the schedule. For sheer variety and weirdness, Japan Nite continues to be the one place at SXSW where you could park yourself and know you’re going to see three or four things you’ve never seen before. – Michael Bertin – Austin Chronicle –
SXSW staple, the coolest Japanese indie rock, punk and obscure culture extravaganza with another killer line-up.
Since 1996, Japan Nite has been showcasing both big-name Japanese artists and acts rising up in the country’s music scene at SXSW, followed by a tour across the United States. After celebrating two decades of shows in Austin last year, the 2017 edition of Japan Nite picks up right where it last left off, introducing fresh-faced Japanese performers to North America.
