MORE INFO: http://jettfes.net/artist.html

“Hello, this is Seiji from Guitar Wolf.

I love rock’n’roll and my hometown of Shimane!

Let’s climb together the ancient tomb site there that overlooks the best, majestic lake in Japan.

And let’s have a party together!

This is what I want to do with everyone at the Simane Jet Festival, my rock’n’roll project since 2017.

In the midst of the world pandemic, I can’t stop thinking about ways to keep this festival going.

Especially now, when music, bands, live music venues and festivals are in dire straits.

One thing I’m proud of is my history of touring the world for the past 25+ years.

This gave me an idea of getting together all my favorite bands from all over the world, at my virtual web festival this year.

It could be one mess of a festival, but hey, that is what I’ve been after all my life.

I need your help to make this virtual festival wildest ever during this pandemic.
I am working on getting together some of the best rock’n’roll lineup from around the world the web festival can seek.
To top it off, Guitar Wolf plans to broadcast live from my hometown’s ancient tomb site. I guarantee you will be blown away, as you’ve never seen anything like it before.

Please consider making a contribution for our festival to take place on Sept 26, 2020. Love you all, and stay healthy wherever you are.

Seiji / Guitar Wolf”
