Topic: Rock in Japan Festival 2013

POLYSICS are confirmed for the second day! Not a big surprise after all. A RIJF without POLYSICS is not the same. ^^

Awesome, glad they're going back there!! I wonder if they'll have a special summer uniform this time?

How long exactly have they been going to the Rock In Japan festivals? I know I've seen some clips from RIJ 2001 with their FYEP scout uniforms, but I was wondering how far back they went.

I don't post here much anymore but I still have a fond appreciation for Polysics. Hit me up on Twitter @west_haven if you really wanna talk to me smile

I don't think they will wear special uniforms. The last time they wore special uniforms was back then in 2009. The "flight attendant" uniforms (see the photo album below).

I'm not sure if they missed one year since their first gig in 2001 (RIJF exist since 2000) but it could be at least the 10th time they're performing at the RIJF.

They wore these during RIJF 2011; I would count it as special.

Re: Rock in Japan Festival 2013

Yes you're right. These are kinda modified overalls i didn't include. About special i was only thinking about non-overall gigs.

But of course they're special too. ^_^

Re: Rock in Japan Festival 2013

I don't think Polysics has ever missed a year at RIJF since 2001. The real trivia question would be whether they always played on the largest stage, on the best day, at the best time...

You can look back in time and see a complete list of every band on every stage for every year here:

http://rijfes.jp/2013/history/

The festival itself was born in 2000.  A pass for the full three days this year will cost about US$350.00. A one day pass is about US$130.00.  There is no such thing as a one-band-one-stage ticket.

Rock on!
