Ladybaby will appear at the Tokyo Idol Festival (TIF), the world’s largest idol festival in early August. This is the third time Rei has appeared at this most prestigious event, since appearing as part of her iconic entry to the MissID competition in 2014.
TIF is the most accessible idol event for foreigners, with an English website, tickets available overseas, and helpers on hand during the event. As well as an army of idols to watch and meet.
When: Ladybaby will appear twice on August 5th (the second day of the three day festival) at two different venues:
17:05-17:20 Dream Stage (outdoor stage)
18:45-19:00 Doll Factory (indoor stage)
Where: Odaiba, Tokyo (map). Various indoor and outdoor stages spread around a huge festival site. Walking from one end to the other takes 20 minutes so give yourself plenty of time to get between venues. It’s a good idea to visit them early so you know where they are. Note that this time of year is extremely hot and humid so be prepared.
Tickets: 1 day ticket, 7,700 yen. 3 day ticket 18,150 yen. Available on the English homepage. This is quite expensive, but the scale of this event is enormous so it is worth it if there are enough idols that you want to see.
