Shiroyama concert

(viewed 664 times)
The fringe concerts at Earth Celebration are free public affairs, which is why we've got lots of pictures and video of them. The main events of the festival, however, are the three big concerts at Shiroyama Park, which are paid ticketed gigs where you're not allowed to take pictures. But here's a sneaky snap of some of the audience.

First picture of the brewery itself by The BBG: second picture of one of its products by me. Robert de Niro is a big fan of Hokusetsu sake, hence the photo of his obviously drunk face on the front of the bottle.

I'm prepared to accept that the first one may be some sort of mistake. The BBG took the one of the Hello Kitty green tea.

For a change, some audience participation at the Earth Celebration fringe: a workshop where the whole audience is given a drum each and we get to play for ourselves.

And still more drumming. Another photo by The BBG. Her camera beats my Nokia 7610 at this distance any day.

More drumming at the Earth Celebration fringe. Both pictures by The BBG.

Duo from Arizona playing at the Earth Celebration fringe. Yes, I know they're too far away to see properly, but it gives you an idea of the environment they were playing in. If you want to see and hear them properly, we've got a short video on YouTube featuring several of the fringe acts.
