A Feast of Taiko
Festival headliners this year are IKARI TAIKO. No fewer than 15 members of the group will be making a special trip to UK Taiko Festival for their first-ever performance in Europe. Established in Osaka in the 1980s, IKARI are not just a phenomenally exciting group to watch, they are a group with an important story. This story is told in a film to be shown before their Saturday evening concert.
As has now become a tradition, the UK Taiko Festival will open with a Friday evening FEAST OF TAIKO concert, featuring the amazing talent of the best youth taiko groups in the country, joined by some special guests.
