Ibaraki Bakuon Fest Beer And Rock Festival 2015

Ibaraki Bakuon Fest Beer And Rock Festival

Held over two days, from Sunday 20th September to Monday 21st September, Ibaraki Bakuon Fest Beer And Rock Festival combines two days of drinking craft beer from across Japan with a line up of Japanese rock bands playing throughout the day for the fourth year running.

A simple enough concept, Ibaraki Bakuon Fest Beer And Rock Festival starts at 11:00 on both days and goes on until 20:00 with the last bands coming on at 17:30. Entrance is free though like the Craft Beer Picnic in Osaka, it has a strange way of buying beers and food. You have to buy tickets for ¥400 which enables you to get one beer, though you can buy a set of eight tickets for ¥3,000 instead, saving a whopping ¥200. Those bulk tickets can be bought in advance until Saturday 19th September which also includes a limited edition glass to the first 500 people who buy them. Locations for buying the advanced tickets are listed here in Japanese. If you want food though, you have to pay that with cash and not tickets. Seems a little bit strange to have two different payments but that’s the way Ibaraki Bakuon Fest Beer And Rock Festival works.

With the recent typhoon hitting Japan pretty hard, Ibaraki Bakuon Fest Beer And Rock Festival was a bit touch and go so to speak whether it was going to be open or not but it was confirmed to still be going on. Unfortunately, we’re going to be in Nagano that weekend so if you go, let us know how it was.
