Guruguru Mawaru 2012

Given that most indie bands on the Tokyo circuit are lucky to get more than a few dozen people at their average gig, it's hard not to smile at the sheer chutzpah of Guruguru Mawaru, a DIY music festival held at a bona fide stadium. The event returns for its third edition this September, when an army of obscure (and not-so-obscure) indie musicians, artists and performers will take over the concourse of the 63,700-capacity Saitama Stadium 2002. Big names joining in this year include Shugo Tokumaru, Hikashu and The Telephones, while there'll be another mass open mic session if you want to join in the action yourself. Read our interview with organiser Tomoji Takeuchi from last year for an idea of what to expect; here's the complete lineup...
