The first music event to be held at Mikuni World Stadium Kitakyushu!

Aso Rock Festival 2019 in Kitakyushu
In the wake of the eruption of Mount Aso in 2015, the music festival "ASO ROCK FESTIVAL", promoted by singer/songwriter Izumiya Shigeru, has been held every year (except 2016). Unlike the previous events, this year's "ASO ROCK FESTIVAL" will be held at Mikuni World Stadium Kitakyushu (Kokura, Kitakyushu City) on Sunday, September 29! This is the first music event to be held at Mikuni World Stadium Kitakyushu, so there's no doubt that it will be a festival brimming with the explosive enthusiasm of Kitakyushu!
To those people who might question, "Why hold the Aso Rock Festival in Kitakyushu?", Mr Izumiya, who is organizing various post-disaster support activities through music, sends the reply that he was empathising with the passion of Kitakyushu City, which had wanted him to hold the Aso Rock Festival in Kitakyushu under the same festival title and with the same spirit.

Also, he added enthusiastically, "this event is definitely not a package event exported to Kitakyushu. I want people to remember how this year's 'Aso Rock Festival' was born with a different vibe because it was held in Kitakyushu City."

Mr Izumiya boasted that he was "aiming for the participation of artists who would be appropriate to a first event and beyond expectations". The first part of the artists lineup has been announced as comprising of "Izumiya Shigeru with BAND", "AK-69", "Takehara Pistol", and "Momoiro Clover Z" (in the order of the Japanese syllabary). Tickets go on sale at noon on 18 May (Saturday). Additional performers are also scheduled to be announced, so please check the official website! (>> Official Website) (Editorial Dept.: nika)
