Dress Up Town and Deshima Sounds aren’t “new” names for the Japanese (anime) music lovers here in The Netherlands. Both have been part of the lineup for TomoCon (and TomoFair) and Abunai! before, but this time it’s not a convention that requires some entertainment…
Instead of a convention or festival with a Japanese theme Dress Up Town and Deshima Sounds will entertain visitors along with Trebulence during a WEEB ROCK! night in cultural center “Astrant”.
The night will start at 8PM with Trebulence, a four-member guitar heavy anime formation who will make sure that the stage for the night is set.
Next up it will be time for the queen of rock and her butlers. Dress Up Town is thé anime cover songs band from The Netherlands. If you’re a fan of anime then you have to see this band at least once!
And finally Deshima Sounds will turn Astrant into a J-club with Eurobeat, House, EDM, Japanese hardcore, Freestyle and bass music to close off the night.
A long story short, it looks like it will be a party regardless!
Tickets are priced at €10,00 and available through the website of Astrant, along with more information.
(Other than the artist description the information is only available in Dutch, so you might have to use some Google Translate here.)
A small taste…
In case you forgot who they are, or if you just learned about these Dutch artists for the very first time, we’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find a little preview of what you can expect:
Other information & location
Cultural center Astrant is located at the Kuiperplein 31 in Ede, and is very easy to reach with public transport. The train station in Ede-Centrum is only a few minutes away by foot, and you can get to station Ede-Wageningen through a short bus ride (or even by foot if you don’t mind a longer walk).
Would you rather come by car? The Kuiperplein also has a large parking lot, and the various underground parking garages and city owned parking lots are all within walking distance.
And a little tip for the Japanese music lovers who might not be into anime that much: ELECTRIC EEL SHOCK will be playing in Astrant on April 20, along with Dikke Dennis and The Rockers.
Maybe there will be more Japanese artists in Astrant in the future. Who knows!
