At this year’s Urban Nomad Opening Freakout (April 14-15 @ Tiger Mt, Taipei), we will pay a special homage to the Tokyo garage scene, featuring wild fuzz, neo-psychedelia and hardcore psychobilly. Highlights include Tokyo bands Minnesota Voodoo Men, and a vicious hard funk band Walkings.
In our quest for the best live acts in the universe, Urban Nomad has lured in legendary frontman of Fishbone Angelo Moore will bring his band Angelo Moore & The Brand New Step to the 2018 Urban Nomad Opening Freakout, at Tiger Mountain in Taipei on April 14-15. Also set to perform: Minnesota Voodoo Men and Walkings from Japan! And Taiwan’s best bands & DJs: Skaraoke, Outlet Drift, Crocodelia, Sonica Calico, Balkazar, DJ Cosimoz, Byron Duvell (Diamond Tigerz), and DJ Marcus Aurelius. And we’re just getting started. There are plenty more performer announcements to come!
For 2018, the Urban Nomad Opening Freakout will be held on April 14 and 15 (Sat & Sun) at Taipei’s best outdoor music venue, Tiger Mountain. The lineup will have more than 30 bands and DJs playing on two main stages, plus amazing food, craft beer, a pop-up vinyl DJ stage, art installations and booths, pre-parties, afterparties and lots of new surprises! (We’re not joking about the surprises.)
