Rising Sun Rock Festival is an annual rock festival held in Ishikari, Hokkaido, Japan. The two-day event is organized by WESS. The festival sells itself as “A True Rock Festival”, referring to the fact that only Japanese artists perform at this event. This has led to speculation that this is an attack on rock festivals such as the Fuji Rock Festival, the Summer Sonic Festival, and even to some extent the Nano-Mugen Festival whose line-ups include foreign artists (and in the case of Fuji Rock Festival, has their line-up dominated by non-Japanese artists).
Three new line ups who will perform in for the special outdoor stage on 16 and 17 August in “RISING SUN ROCK FESTIVAL 2013 IN EZO” has been announced.
They are Sambo Master (first performance after 9 years) Haruka to miyuki and Nubo (first appearance). They will line up with Ando Yuko, OVERGROUND ACCOUSTIC UNDERGROUND, Ohashi Trio, GONTITI, Chara, 10-FEET, and Magokoro Burazazu.
According to Natalie, there are 56 performers to be performed in this festival. The next line up will be announced on 27th May.
The advanced ticket reservation will be available on 15th May in the official site. Special pass case will be given as a bonus.
“RISING SUN ROCK FESTIVAL 2013 IN EZO” will be held for two days.
