Introducing the first electronic music conference to be held in Japan, Tokyo Dance Music Event today announces its dates December 1st-3rd 2016. TDME play host to artistic idols and creators of iconic institutions both at home and internationally. From the center of Japanese dance culture in the clubbing hub of Shibuya, a schedule of seminars and showcases on stage will be complimented by curated experiences featuring Boiler Room in the district’s most venerated venues.
With the ever-colorfully diverse – and divergent – cultural landscape of Tokyo its backdrop, between the high-rise complexes and youthful Harajuku neighborhood, TDME offers an exploration of this digital world and its soundscape. No less animated will be discussions taking place in the creative spaces of the high-rise Hikarie Hall. Along with Red Bull Studios Tokyo, these locations will hold talks on the current and future dance movement, from Asia to beyond; supplemented by Ableton workshops and the popular Toolroom Academy offered for the first time ever in Asia.
