BABYMETAL, the trio of young Japanese girls who play music that fuses idol pop with classic power metal, are putting on a festival this summer. BABYMETAL is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as “Su-metal”, Yui Mizuno as “Yuimetal”, and Moa Kikuchi as “Moametal”. The concept of the group is a fusion of the heavy metal and Japanese idol genres. Their traveling Five Fox Festival has a gimmick: each of the nine shows is restricted to a very specific audience, which is coming soon, so please check it out and don’t miss it!
In an interesting twist that could only come from BABYMETAL, there are strict conditions required to attend each of these dates. Specifically, the festival is broken down into categories by age group, gender, and dress code. For example, one date is reserved exclusively for males, another for females, and another for teenagers. Even more randomly is the day when only elementary school children and people over the age of 60 yo will be granted admittance. If you’re outside that demo, you can always attend the show requiring corpse paint to be worn.
“Each show has its own specific conditions which purchasers must abide by,” BABYMETAL write on their website. “Please make sure that all of the conditions are met before you make the purchase.” Said conditions include being male, being female, being a teenager, being an elementary schoolchild or over 60, and wearing corpse paint.
