Rural Festival announces the first names for 2018

Rural Festival, the electronic music festival taking place in the Nagano Prefecture in Central Japan, has announced the first names of the lineup for their 10th edition happening from July 14th to 17th, 2018.

The Japanese Festival is quite popular due to its scenic location in the countryside where campers have no issue finding outdoor activities and hiking routes which showcase one of the prettiest regions of the Island country. The headliner so far will be Antenes, coming from Brooklyn NY, she will DJ and also perform with a mod rig she made herself. Vladimir Ivkovic will feature for the first time at the festival whereas Jane Fitz returns for the third time and DJ Nobu will play for the eighth consecutive year at the festival, and the collaborative live show of Akiko Kiyama and Ena. Rural, as its name suggests, is a remote area in mountainous regions where campers find comfort in the fruitful and generous Japanese summer. Further information and performing artists are yet to be revealed in the near future.
