Got kids and love music? This festival is for you. Natsu Biraki’s concept is simple: create a festival that’s easily accessible from the city (in this case, about an hour from Tokyo Station), and which is as welcoming to kids as it is adults. As such, the homey festival allocates facilities for breastfeeding mothers as well as nappy-changing rooms. Plus, children under 12 are free, and they can participate in the many creative workshops.
Japanese act to watch: Originating from Osaka, IN-SIST are one of the pioneers of Japanese hip hop and widely known for their funky grooves and tight delivery.
