nonnative has created commemorative merch for one of Japan’s most idyllic dance music festivals. The yearly music festival takes place in the countryside of Japan in Izu peninsula, and looks to brings back the core of dance music culture — a culture that traditionally belonged to “disaffected youth, ethnic minorities and the LGBTQ communities in the urban centers of cities such as NYC, Detroit, and Chicago.” Rainbow Disco Club stays true to the culture’s origins yet adds a Japanese twist that is truly unique.
With the great outdoors incorporated into the festival, it’s not uncommon to find tricked out tents, partying, families, audiophile sound systems, psychedelics, GORE-TEX jackets, and the latest fashion styles all in one location. While this year’s festival has been canceled due to the threat of the Coronavirus, that hasn’t stopped nonnative and RDC from celebrating. Releasing is a small capsule of long-sleeve shirts, tees, and caps dedicated to the music festival. RDC will also be hosting a paid 12-hour “somewhere under the rainbow!” stream from the Izu location.
Those interested in the capsule can find it now over at nonnative’s online store where prices range from ¥6,600 – ¥8,800 JPY (approximately $61 – $81 USD).
