One of the big good point of this festival was the music line-up ! 3 Days of outdoor live concerts !
Line-up day 1: » Bijo ♂ MEN Z » Kumisolo » AMIAYA » DJ livetune
Line-up day 2: » moumoon » SHONEN KNIFE
Line-up day 3: » Bijo ♂ MEN Z » SPYAIR » Anna Tsuchiya
I unfortunatly didn't managed to see DJ livetune, Kumisolo and SHONEN KNIFE. But i had an amazing time at the concerts of AMIAYA, moumoon, SPYAIR and Anna Tsuchiya ! It was my first time seeing those artists live, and for most of them (exept Anna) it was their first concert in France/Europe !
The weather was really good and the audience was receptive so i think both the artists and the fans had a great time !
I love their songs but i was a bit worried about how could their live performances look like. They don't really dance and don't have a special visual concept so i was wondering how they would catch the audience. To my surprise, they are DJing live ! I knew AMI and AYA had DJs activities a few years ago but I didn't know they were still into it. The whole thing is sure not "amazing" but i think it really nice and I really enjoyed it. The sisters were both at the opposite side of the long table with their sound materials and were switching from singing and DJing. They performed most of their songs including "Play That Music", "Magic Color", "Dio" and my personal favorite, "Starline"
They were wearing really cute Kimonos, yellow and pink (sorry I forgot which one was AYA/AMI, they really are perfect twins). After two songs they dropped the Kimonos for more fashionable outfits, from their brand Jouetie i suppose.
I don't know if it's because it was their first live outside Japan but I wish they would interact more with the audience, make us sing more, make us clap our hands, make us jump, scream at the mic to really set up the mood. I was in the front row so we were having fun but I don't know how the audience reacted behind me. And maybe it's also because it was an overseas show and they couldn't bring too much staff, but I think maybe some dancers could be nice to make the stage a little bit more lively. Not that it bothered me, but i am a fan so I might be biased, but having some dancers around might be better to make an audience that do not know who AMIAYA are a little more receptive and lively.
Oh, and before the concert i went to the toilet and i bumped into Ami and Aya, we shared the mirror for a make-up re-touch ! So close ! I was so surprised, i think they realized that I was a fan haha, my face was priceless.
My camera battery died just before the show started, i only took those bad quality pictures above with my phone, do thank you to my friend Camille for these close-up pictures:
☆Anna Tsuchiya ☆
I was really surprised by her kindness. And she is a gorgeous woman. She was so cute in her floral dress. I was quite mesmerize by her being so close to me so i didn't take much pictures of this moment.
Anna Tsuchiya then closed the festival with her concert. Many workers and artists from the pop-up shops inside the hall of the festival left their booth to go outside and watch Anna Tsuchiya. My favorite moments were of course when sang her most popular songs like (click for fancams)" Kuroi Namida", "LUCY", "Rose" or "Carry On". She already came a few times in France but it was my first time seeing Anna so i was really happy, and the Nana fan that I am was really excited !
Thank you for reading !
