Thrown in may and october this year, “FREAKS” the new festival that excited every music and outdoor event freaks, is coming back for a new year countdown party in Tokyo’s water front at the event hall city-Ariake area “Differ Ariake”. 

“ONE NIGHT x ONE STAGE x ONE DJ”, is the theme of the first FREAKS NYE 2011-2012. This event will see the old year out with only one DJ on one stage. The DJ that will play this important role is the living legend that is said to be the DJ that is closest to god; DJ HARVEY! For 2 years in a row, he did a Japan tour containing 29 events in 28 cities that gathered a total of more than 20,000 people! This will be the first time for him to do an all night long set in Japan! This extra long DJ set will no doubt be a truly amazing music journey on the opening of the new year.

On top of that there is still one more big surprise, customers that have bought an advance ticket will get an exclusive DJ HARVEY mix CD at the door on the day of the event! This will be 10 years since the 2001 release “Sarcastic Disco vol.2″ that there is an officially mix released from Harvey himself. So far there are only 2 mix CDs from Harvey which are both rare and high value collectors items. This exclusive mix CD will surely become an rare collectors item for fans all over the world.

Visuals, Lights, Lasers, Decorations and Sound system will also be the best out there! There is no doubt “FREAKS NYE 2011-2012″ will be a legendary night! So we hope to see you on new years at Ariake, Tokyo.
