Join Alive 2015

Often overshadowed by Hokkaido's other large-scale summer music festival, the venerable Rising Sun, this one takes place in the mountains of Iwamizawa, not far from Sapporo. The lineup ranges from bubble pop (think Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, 'vocaloid' Hatsune Miku and idol group Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku) to rock (metal veterans Kinniku Shojo Tai and alt foursome Spitz), plus domestically flavoured Latin tunes courtesy of Naoto Inti Raymi. Camping in the great outdoors is highly recommended here, as is the superb local food.
