Gelmannica 2009

Celebrated designer and media artist Gelman has been tied into Tokyo’s electronic music scene for a while now — through his associations with Minimal Tokyo and his “Gelman Lounge” events — and now he’s bringing things to a new level with the inaugural edition of Gelmannica, “the first international festival for electronic music and media arts.”

Headliners include Apparat, Ed Chamberlain, and Magnum 30 on the main floor at Unit, with the basement Saloon hosting the “Gelmannica Party of Parties,” featuring DJs and VJs from Tokyo’s best parties. It all happens Friday, April 10 from 23:00 — 3,500 yen at the door, 3,000 with flyer, which you can download here.

Update: Artist profiles have now been added — you can access them from the “Artists” page.
