The Weekender, which features some of the world's fastest-rising and most cutting-edge international artists, takes place Saturday and Sunday, February 15th and 16th at Shin Kiba Studio Coast in Tokyo. Major acts are Mogwai, The National, Warpaint, Chvrches, Youth Lagoon, Daughter, King Krule, Ásgeir, Errors, Buke and Gase.

In conjunction with The Weekender, Ynos will present Chvrches with special guest The Errors at the Liquid Room in Ebisu on Wednesday, February 12th and at Bigcat in Osaka on Thursday, February 13th.

Ynos was started by Asia music industry luminary Andrew "Plug" Lazonby and is a sister company of Hostess Entertainment, the largest independent international music company in Japan. The last Weekender event, an in-the-city mini festival in Ebisu, attracted more than 4,000 fans.

Lazonby said, "The Weekender has become the perfect forum for artists of substance to present and connect their music to a new, re-energized and growing fan base in Japan and across Asia.  Everyone at Ynos and Hostess is thrilled with the latest edition of the series—it's going to be fabulous."

The Hostess Club Weekender takes place in Tokyo three times per year and typically features around ten international artists. Select artists then go on the road as part of the Hostess Club tour, visiting Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, Manila and, for this edition of the event, ending with an all-day Hostess Club Weekender in Singapore at Fort Canning Park on Saturday, February 22nd. A new interactive app now supports the Weekender events providing essential information to fans such as the bands' schedules, artist profiles, discographies, videos, maps, online ticketing, and merchandising.

Ynos was conceived and launched by Lazonby and digital media venture studio Designed for Revolution (DFR) in 2011.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
