The Rock in Japan Festival is a three-day rock festival held every year, during the beginning of August at the Hitachi Seaside Park, in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. This show is annually organized by Rockinon, showcasing mostly J-Rock and J-Pop artists. This year the show begins on 5th August and has an amazing line up for the audiences. The venue also includes purchasing of goodies and different foods.
Talking about the trend, the music of Japan has a very wide variety of performers, which are distinct in their styles, be it traditional or modern. The word for music in Japanese is Ongaku. Interestingly Japan is the largest physical music in the world and the second largest overall music market, the reason why this show attracts many people.
Dealing with the type of artists that come to this show, we need to look at the history, in the 1960s many Japanese rock bands were influenced by the Western rock musicians like the Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Rolling Stones, etc. This was also mixed with other Appalachian folk music, mod and psychedelic rock. This gave rise to Group Sounds, which is a genre of Japanese rock music. Several musicians began experimenting with the genre of electronic rock in the early 1970s. During the 1990s, pop songs were used in films, anime, television advertisement and dramatic programming, becoming some of the best-selling forms of music in Japan.
Similarly, J-Pop is an abbreviation for Japanese pop, it is a musical genre that entered the mainstream music industry of Japan during the 1990s. J-Pop was defined by Japanese new wave bands such as Yellow Magic Orchestra and Southern All Stars in the late 1970s. Eventually, J-P-op replaced Kayokyoku- Lyric Singing Music, in the Japanese music scene. The term was coined by the Japanese media to differentiate the Japanese music from foreign music.
