So, with Idoling buying the farm later this year, this Idolfest is gonna be the last one, right?   :shock:

they can still participate in @Jam Expo, so nothing carved in stone yet. although in TIF, given the producers behind it, I expect a "special" farewell show while in @Jam Expo they would probably have an ordinary one.

New announcements. Mostly expected groups, but great ones (at least for me).

Idol College
Akishibu Project
Ayumikurikamaki
Onnajuku Allstars
The Hoopers
Stereo Japan
Tsubasa Fly
Hakoiri Musume
Bakusute Satokanda Icchome
Bellring Girls Heart
Houkago Princess
Maria
Moso Calibration

Of course I am more than happy about Bellring Girls Heart, but great to see Ayumikurikamaki and Tsubasa Fly again.
Houkago Princess and Moso Calibration should be good news for some.

I am not impressed. 50 groups and still missing

Denpa Gumi.inc - You Kikkawa - Hime Kyun Fruit Can - Super Girls - GEM - Ryutist - FYT - Rio Hiiragi - Mai Kotone - Koto - Chu-Z... just to name a few relevant names. I wonder why they always invite some unknown groups (like this stereo japan... wtf is this?) but NEVER one of those I appreciate or am used to. like some Re-2, Whoopie Whoopie, Shibuya Dominion, Feam...  :(

Well, Mai Kotone was there last year and will with high probability appear again. Chu-Z or Hime Kyun I highly doubt.
I understand the way of inviting some new/unknown groups. They should be supported to be kept motivated.
Why should they care for your taste? ;P I am satisfied already. 3 of my Top 5 groups are there plus some I really like.

Completely forgot about this thread until I received an email from the organizers that I got accepted (thanks for all the answers guys!)

Quote
[Date]
Saturday, August 1st & Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

[Time]
10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (subject to change)

[Location]
Odaiba & Aomi Area, Tokyo

[Wristband Exchange Point]
The location will be announced soon on the official website by mid-July.
Please note that we are unable to answer questions regarding this special invitation via email or telephone.

Hrm no mention about what time foreigners would be allowed to pick up a wristband compared to people who purchase a ticket through normal means :?

I'm not too worried about the heat as I survived 2 days of Summer Sonic in Osaka...got myself a decent tan :D

I am surprised that it now seems to be valid for "2 Days" (-> PASSPO reference :D).
But I expect TIF staff to hand out the tickets far later than regular ones. As QwiksXnd stated some posts before about last year, it was the same then. And the only thing you can be certain of, that if it can get worse, TIF staff will make it possible...

I already fear the heat. If they at least would put up some rest areas with roofs to block the sun, Market Square was hell...

New Announcements.
Surprisingly they added PassCode. TIF really seems to become more diverse. Now there is hope they invite JyuJyu as well.

But the best: PiiiiiiiN is also in the line-up. I really freak out now. My Top 3 idols are around! Just one complication: How to dress now? Changing fan shirts during the day will be impossible in the heat. And putting on full PASSPO wota gear seems not adequate. Any ideas?

Now I must hope that schedules don't intertwine! And my initial plan to take food with me is skipped with the inclusion of Chubbiness. Carrying food near your body with them around is more then reckless...

Nevertheless totally excited !!!

Most excited about Kiyoshi Ryujin 25 out of all the new groups! I didn't want to like them but after I saw them live, they were amazing! I couldn't stop smiling! Definitely wins for best idol group with a dude in it! I feel bad for the guy in Dream 5 especially after seeing the new Yokai Taiso video. At least the kid from Tempura Kids seems like he's crazy so I don't care that he sometimes wears dresses to match the girls.

Dorothy Little Happy and callme? There better be a "collab" between them!

Ganbare! Victory
Kiyoshi Ryujin25
callme
Starmarie
Senosister
Chubbiness
Dream5
hy4_4yh
Passcode
Piiiiiiin


some important names but nothing to write home about.

Thanks for the list. Was too lazy to do it :lol:

It is true that the names are no biggies. Well, I don't care. Not even if they would add MomoClo or AKB. But I understand that big names a a requirement for keeping TIF alive.

I think we can assume updates will be weekly on Friday or Saturday.

Alice in Alice
Eien Shoujou
Sakura Gakuin
CMT
Siam & POPTUNE
Tsuribit
TPD Dash
Tokyo Performance Doll
Bandjanaimon
Through Skills
Yamaguchi Kassei Gakuen
Yumemiru Adolescence

Chubbiness aren't a big group? :)

You are absolutely right. The footprints, other AVEX have left before, are easily exceed by just one member of Chubbiness. Comparable to a T-Rex stepping on a birds track marks. No idea, how I could oversee that but it may be similar in missing out on recognizing the forest because of many trees.
(I hope you have this quote in your contry too. Otherwise I made no sense there.)

But about the new announcements: Nothing that interests me.

:lol:

But honestly they would barely be considered chubby outside Japan.

But the best: PiiiiiiiN is also in the line-up.
I really like them as well and want to buy their stuff but I can only find a single, don't they have anything else released?

At this point I think I'll just risk my life and go this year despite the heat.

yeah seems like weekly updates this year. that was probably the best one so far, regarding the relevance (that I complained about earlier) of the groups added. arguably 9 solid names to the lineup, although I'm not a fan of a single one of them.

You should risk it. It is fun, mostly.
Regarding PiiiiiiiN: They released 4 singles so far, but none of them for official sale it seems. At least I never saw them in Online Stores or in CD Shops. In the meantime you should check the official Twitter. They posted all songs they performed in their Two Man on March 29th. If you go to TIF you could buy them there directly. Or, as you seem to be german, I buy them for you and send it via postal service. That way I can acquire more event tickets :lol:
You seem to have great taste btw :D

Does anyone remember when TIF released organisational details, like the map and stages, last year?
