Yo…Japan’s going OFF in September! Last week we helped announce the full all Japanese lineup for this year’s edition of the biggest hardcore fest in Japan called Bloodaxe Festival taking place in Tokyo on September 25th:
And then today Osaka-based festival Summer Bash Fest 2021 has announced its full lineup taking place 5 days before Bloodaxe Festival! Damn man – if we could fly to Japan (fuck covid) this would be the best week to be in Japan to check out what the current crop of Japanese hardcore bands are like in a LIVE setting. As we all know, the best setting to experience hardcore is and will always be in the LIVE setting.
The info for the festival is in the flyer below:
DATE: September 20
VENUE: Sunhall (Osaka)
BANDS: Full list in the flyer but it includes everything you want from youth crew to hardcore punk to powerviolence to legends like SAND and Numb! SO SICK!!!
Lucky for those of us outside of Japan, our friends in Human Cage Protocol has already said they’ll be there to film the festival!!! HELL YEAH!!! Go subscribe to their page so you see all the madness when it drops! Click HERE.
