LUNATIC FEST., hosted by LUNA SEA, is aimed to be the biggest and craziest rock festival in Japan’s music history. The long-awaited final round of artist line-up was announced on May 18. It was also revealed on May 29th that LUNA SEA will appear as LUNACY, their moniker for the indie days, to be the opening act for both days of LUNATIC FEST..
Final artist lineup
June 27 (Sat) X JAPAN
June 28 (Sun) BUCK-TICK
Opening Artist (both days): LUNACY
LUNA SEA used to be affiliated with EXTASY RECORDS run by X JAPAN, and LUNA SEA’s guitarist SUGIZO is currently an official member of X JAPAN. Meanwhile, the members of LUNA SEA were also hugely influenced by BUCK-TICK, the pioneers in the J-Rock scene. LUNA SEA personally reached out and invited both X JAPAN and BUCK-TICK to form this miraculous lineup.
LUNA SEA, X JAPAN, BUCK-TICK, and GLAY have all successfully played solo shows at Tokyo Dome. These legendary four bands are arguably the top artists of LUNATIC FEST., which makes the festival extremely special and precious, since we have never seen all four of them share the same stage of any music festival or event before. On top of that, the edgiest young artists that represent the current Japanese music scene will also join this historic music event. Embracing all styles of rock music, LUNA SEA made LUNATIC FEST. truly an ultimate Japanese rock festival of all time.
The opening acts line-up of LUNATIC FEST. was also announced on May 29. The second round of presale tickets are currently available on the official website.
