The Labyrinth 2011

Just a quick post with more information on Labyrinth. So far the first two artists that have been announced are Morphosis and Kangding Ray. Considering they are responsible for two of the best albums of 2011 so far, this is not a bad way to start... Mindgames will be announcing the artists slowly, we will post the full lineup once it has been announced. It is at least as good as last year, if not better...

*EDIT* Also confirmed for 2011 are residents Peter van Hoesen, Donato Dozzy and Function. These guys have a track record of owning Labyrinth. Can't wait to see them back in action!

For overseas visitors coming to Labyrinth, mnml ssgs have 50 early bird tickets (14,000 yen) that can be reserved by emailing us. Please title the email "Labyrinth tickets" (or something similar) and include the name of each person that requires the ticket. You will then pay for the ticket at the door.

For people inside Japan, there are a limited amount of early bird tickets that can be purchased through Lawson (L-Code: 72535). There will also be 100 special discount ticket & room packages available through the Labyrinth hotel booking website. Hotel & Discount Ticket package Booking starts on June 17th. You can also reserve / buy a ticket, and book hotel rooms separately at a later date. The hotel booking is in Japanese, so I'd suggest using google translate, you should be able to work it out. The hotels are a bit removed from the venue, and you need to take a shuttle bus to get to the grounds. The alternative is camping at the site, which is what most people do. And for people worried about getting to the venue, you can do that with a train and a bus. It is pretty straightforward.

For people coming from overseas, and other first time visitors, we will try our best to keep you updated and provide info on mnml ssgs. You can also check the Mindgames homepage and twitter. Please keep in mind that we all work full-time, and don't have spare time to answer specific travel questions about coming to Japan etc. Between google and Lonely Planet, you should be able to work it all out.

The countdown has begun. Looking forward to seeing everyone in September!


  1. i'm already putting together a budget to see if the girl and i can make it this year. we're on the fence, but there's a chance we might just drop some flights on a credit card and make our way back to the mountain.

    its definitely calling me after the "enter the labyrinth" show in early may...

  2. Think I will be able to cross the water from Korea and make it this year. Rather excited about the prospect.

  3. I so wish I could return to Japan just for this.. :(


  4. Also confirmed for 2011 are residents Peter van Hoesen, Donato Dozzy and Function.
