Turning the most unlikely of locations into pop-up clubs for partiers of all ages, producer Yasutaka Nakata's Takenoko parties have previously taken place at stations, beaches and shrines, on boats and even at World Heritage sites. Where the caravan will be stopping next is always a source of much excitement, and the word is finally out: in September, Takenoko will be heading to Kyoto's Heian Jingu, designated an Important Cultural Property of Japan and ranking among the ancient capital's most photogenic shrines. The line-up includes Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Nakata himself, who'll be appearing under his Capsule alias, plus DJ Daishi Dance.
Non-Japanese fans can get in for free – just show your passport at the entrance to receive a ticket. This special offers also applies to the Takenoko pre-party and the festival's afterparty, both held at Kyoto club World.
