Flower Festival Guests 2012

With about 30 stages and three days to fill, you’d think that there should be a few good acts playing at the Hiroshima Flower Festival over Golden Week. Well, for some reason, I decided to wade through all the crap for you. I probably wouldn’t have if I’d known how deep I would get…

Musical taste is a highly subjective matter, so I’ve been scouring the web looking for links and videos that should give you an idea of what you might like to catch, and what you might want to avoid. There is a long list of published guests and I’m working my way down it.

Below are the first nine sixteen. I plan to add more, but who knows how far I will get – I’m already feeling quite depressed. Hoping to have the time and energy to post a map with the stage locations on too… For those interested in other stuff going on at the festival, there are more details in the event listing (to which I’m also adding info as I get it and have time to update).

Anyway, here is what I’ve got through so far the full line up. Any of these lot strike your fancy?
