The surfers are taking over at Yokohama Red-Brick Warehouse this weekend as the annual Greenroom Festival returns. This surf-themed art-and-music jamboree offers a leisurely introduction to the summer music festival season, with yoga sessions and surf movies adding to the relaxed vibe. Acid jazz veterans The Brand New Heavies and old-school R&B revivalists Vintage Trouble are Saturday's and Sunday's respective headliners, backed up by the easygoing likes of Newton Faulkner and Blue King Brown, plus many homegrown favourites from the festival circuit.
