Asakusa Deathfest 2019 - (Tokyo, October 6th to 16th)


Come thrash your way through Tokyo with us at Japan’s kvltest extreme music festival, Asakusa Deathfest! Now in its 3rd year, ADF and their brutal cadre of bands hailing from across Asia, Europe and the Americas reign in blood for 5 days in the cavernous dungeon that is Gold Sounds in the eponymous Asakusa district of Eastern Tokyo.

Home to the Kaminarimon Thunder Gate, the Sumida River, and countless rickshaw runners, Asakusa also lies in the shadow of a modern Tower of Babel, Tokyo’s Sky Tree. Ancient temples, riffs for miles, vegan curry, and a wildly international mix of metalheads, grindfreaks, and punx, if you’re looking for the next level in extreme music experiences, well, look no further: this is it.
