On Aug 18, TV Tokyo showed an interview with the leader of WMDF’s “Hanafubuki” as part of its program Why did you come to Japan?”. The caption below says “I came to Japan to perform at the Festival in Hakodate”.
The program showed a still of their performance at the Bunda stage, with the description “Rock-style band appeals through eccentric performances”.
Uchronie’s performance is also on the WMDF Official Channel, so please check it out.
WMDF’s reputation continues to grow in Japan and beyond. Please help keep the word spreading!
Update: all Atlas and Chara stage performances have been cancelled today. Chara has no covering, and the roof of Atlas is so high that rain hits the stage easily when there is any wind.
Bunda stage is still up and running. with a string of performances for those who are up to challenging the weather.
With regret, we announce the cancellation of the Waku Waku Festival for today. We hope you all took the chance to enjoy it yesterday!
Also, this evening’s Eudora stage performance (Thailand) is cancelled.
So, WMDF will be concentrated in the actual grounds of Motomachi Park. All stage changes will be clearly announced by MCs and at the information centre in the park.
WMDF offers a unique chance to meet the cultures of the world. Maybe a little rain and wind is a part of this….
At the moment, we are running with street performers and MoguFes booths.
#WMDF puts safety first. If at any time the safety of audience, performers or staff is even slightly compromised, we will suspend or cancel proceedings.
