23 artists headline two-day Peaceful Rock Festival

Date Posted: 2010-07-01

The sounds of rock ‘n roll music will fill the air Saturday and Sunday as the Peaceful Rock Festival entertains thousands on an Okinawa City stage.

A total of 23 groups will perform across the two days at the Okinawa City Athletic Field near Kadena Air Base Gate 5. Saturday’s lineup includes HY, Kariyushi 58, Diamantes, D-51, All Japan Goith, Zukan, Stereopony, Yanawaraba, Fuzzy Quartet Row, Mana Musica, Airbag and Audition Band.

On Sunday, new faces join the veterans as Murasaki, Freddie Eto & Queeness, Katchan & Jack Nasty’s Band, Jet, Makin’ Love, Porky’s, Kaguyahimo, Bourbonz, 2side 1 Brain, Art More Groovy and Audition Band perform. Bands will be coming from mainland Japan, and tour agencies are even booking special flights to bring visitors to Okinawa for the festival.

Sunday’s performance includes the Murasaki Project, which began the whole festival concept in 1983. It was ‘Murasaki Why Now?’ that first year, and the event was so successful it’s hard for organizers to hold back the numbers of bands who now want to perform on Okinawa. Others on stage Sunday are Fake Kingz, Art More Groovy, 2Side 1Brain, Bourbons, Kaguyahime, Porky’s, Makin’ Love, Jet, Katchan & Jack Nasty’s Band, and Freddie ETo & Queeness.

A one-day ticket is ¥3,800 in advance or ¥4,300 at the gate, while a two-day ticket, sold only in advance, is ¥6,000. Ticket information is available from the Peaceful Love Rock Festival Committee, (098) 930-1184.
