Rising Sun Rock Festival 2006
 In Hokkaido, up north in Japan, there has been one of the biggest rock festivals, Rising Sun Rock Festival, has been held at the third weekend of August since 1999 and three photographers and two writers of Smashing Mag headed for the fest. to make a full report. In the flat and huge fields near Ishikari Bay, there is the biggest stage, Sun, in front of hundreds and thousands of people and also 5 stages called Green Oasis, Red Star Field, Moon Circus, Bohemian Garden, Earth Tent with a unique venue Black Hall.

 There were more than 100 bands and artists played there and it is impossible to cover them all, but by spending hours to take photos of various musicians in all over the site, we came up to a question which is what is a festival?

 Before getting there straight, please have a look at the photos and see what was happening there.
