Puffy continues to keep their hand in the game and last week they announced a concert at the Tropical Lovers Beach Festa on June 14th of this year. The festival is on the island of Ishigaki which is at the tail end of Japan and closer to Taiwan than the main islands. It looks like a really nice place to visit, but it is way off the beaten path too (which also has a certain charm). The venue looks to be Ishigaki Fusaki Village which looks like a very pleasant resort.
The festival line up is: Puffy, Special Others Acoustic, Humbert Humbert and Tremolo.
My exposure to the other acts is exactly zero, so I am going to throw out there that Puffy is the headliner. Assuming I am right, it is nice to see Puffy get a top bill, but by the same token it is at a very small festival on the edge of Japan. Yet, as one of the readers on the blog has said previously, they are keeping their hand in the game so I'll take it.
