WMDF on Japanese National TV

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!
