The Greenroom Festival is an annual music, film and art festival held at the Red Brick Warehouse in Yokohama. This year the festival is being held over the weekend of 24-25 May.
The emphasis is on surf, skate and beach culture.
The Greenroom Festival began in 2005 and has grown steadily every year. This year artists include Jimmy Cliff, Rip Slyme, Monkey Majik, Gabrielle Aplin, Donovan Frankenreiter and Xavier Rudd.
The long-time skate photographer Grant Brittain (www.jgrantbrittain.com) has been invited to show his work at the festival, which should be a treat for Japanese skate fans.
Over 50,000 people usually attend.
