Hostess Club Weekender Japan sparks rumours for a second Singapore edition

This afternoon, Hostess Entertainment announced Perfume Genius as the latest addition to the Hostess Club Weekender that will be happening in Tokyo on 21 and 22 June.

For the eighth instalment of the festival, one-man-band Mike Hadreas will be joining HighasaKite, SOHN, The Bohicas, Cloud Nothings, and Joan As Police Woman as part of a 10-band line up.

The last four acts will be announced in the coming weeks, the next being a duo, as indicated by the cartoon silhouettes on the poster.

HCW8_poster_Joan[spacer height=”10px”] The Hostess Club Weekender, presented by Ynos, a sister company of Hostess Entertainment (which set up shop in Southeast Asia in October last year), typically happens three times a year in Tokyo.

The most recent Weekender, held back in February, saw selected artists headed on the Hostess Club tour throughout Southeast Asia, and ended in our sunny island earlier this February.

The debut Singapore edition included five (The National, Mogwai, King Krule, Buke and Gase, Asgeir) out the the ten artists that played on the Japanese line-up, and drew a pretty massive crowd at Fort Canning Park.

With the exception of Perfume Genius and Cloud Nothings who have played here before, the rest of this upcoming June Weekender’s line-up is made up of a bunch of relatively new and unknown acts. Given the huge success of the inaugural Hostess Club Weekender in Singapore, could there be a possibility that there will be another festival in store for us? 

Any guesses who the last four mystery artists may be?
