Resident Advisor's Five Key Performances From Rural 2019
The online music platform highlights their standout performances from the Japanese festival.
Rural Festival is one of Japan’s most compelling festival’s. This year the get-together was held at “the stunning Sutakako Camping Ground, a remote, 1300-metre high mountain next to a scenic hot spring town.” The line up was a refreshing blend of domestic talent such as Wata Igarashi and DJ Nobu with a wealth load of international artists from around the globe. Following the festival, Resident Advisor had their say on the event with another edition of their Five key performances series.
To be found amongst the stand out five are two Octopus favourites in Interstellar Funk and Wata Igarashi. Touching on Interstellar Funk’s performance they highlighted it as a “cosmic trip” that “set the perfect start to a blissful Sunday afternoon.” While talking about Wata Igarashi they said “Playing at prime time on Sunday night, straight after Function, he delivered three hours of flawlessly executed techno, trippy, spacey and groovy, with consistent energy and drive.”
