Launched in 2011 by promoter BAMP Project, the Republik Music Festival was named after a new nightclub BAMP planned to launch last year. Unidentified delays have kept the former O Lounge space on Kapiolani Boulevard from opening for business, although BAMP now says the venue will open by summer after announcing a July 30 performance by Bloc Party earlier today.
