The Great Satsumanian Hestival 2018
Yes, that’s festival with an “h.” The “he” represents the word for volcanic ash in Kagoshima’s local dialect, which is fitting, since much of the city is covered in it thanks to the nearby Sakurajima. In fact, the fes will take place on the Sakurajima peninsula, at the foot of the active volcano. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration, there will be a whole host of sporting events on top of the usual food and music. So far, notable artists announced include Acidman, Keytalk, Ego-Wrappin’, and Soil & Pimp Sessions.
