Tokyo x Brooklyn™ is a two-day pop culture festival bringing together the cultures of Tokyo and Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint. This first-of-its-kind festival features an exciting lineup of musicians, a variety of culinary favorites, innovative technology, and artists. The concept is to bridge the gap between Brooklyn creativity and craftsmanship and Japanese pop culture, introducing fans of both cultures to artists from both countries.

The festival organizer is Hot Zipang, Inc., a Tokyo- based animation studio and creative ad agency specializing in creator management and cutting-edge content making.

Festival attendees will experience more than just a spectacular music event.
