Osaka Festa '97

in Ogimachi-koen, Osaka

An awesome day with 10 live bands from Western Japan, DJs all day, great food & drinks, a thunderous sound system, and some cool prizes. Second Stage featured International and acoustic/acapella music with DJ Matt wandering over to the main stage and blowing some speakers later on in the day. The cops came and forced everyone to stick to the 7pm PA cutoff, but the sponsors (love ya!) pumped up their portable systems and gave us some tunes into the night. Rumours have it that Osaka's international business community had a huge rate of employee absences the following day. WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY.
