Shima Fes Setouchi 2018
Shima Fes has the ambitious goal of being an oceanside music event that will last 100 years. The fes started in 2011, so we’ll have to wait another 90 odd years to see if this is an impossible dream or an impressive feat. Regardless, its location is enviable — the fes takes place on Shodo island in the middle of the Setouchi Inland Sea and is accessible by boat from 7 different ports. Performers include Tempalay, Husking Bee, and other pop and folk-rock artist. And, of course, udon will be plentiful.
