Takatsuki Jazz Festival

During Golden week I went to the Takatsuki jazz festival. I've never been before but I have heard many people recommend it. Honestly I didn't think it was that great. It was overcrowded, not very well organized and poorly laid out. I got there at about 4pm which was bad timing as it was when the festival changes over from the outdoor market style to inside bar style. There were so many people cramped into tiny spaces, and the music was... well... not that good. Improve jazz? Just play anything you like? Yeah I guess that nonsense sounds like music. I don't think anyone really likes jazz that much, it is just fashionable to pretend you do. Ooooh look at me I'm wearing a stupid hat and listening to something that sounds like someone threw a bunch of instruments into a washing machine... I'm so cool :P


  1. I can image that you expected it would be a great jazz festival, but it was different. Actually, I happened to look at it, but I didn't stop walking. I knew it isn't worth going out of my way to see it. I hope it will get better year by year.

  2. I've heard so many people talk about it, so yeah, disappointing. I think it should get better with time, but I might wait a few years before I give it another go.
