The Ftarri store/live performance space in Suidobashi, Tokyo, celebrated its 3rd anniversary in August 2015. To mark this occasion, we held six 3rd anniversary concerts in July and August. For each concert we produced a CD-R (each with different music) which was presented as a gift to audience members. Each disc includes recordings by 4 or 5 musicians or groups. Almost all of the tracks are previously unreleased, and many were recorded specifically for these CD-Rs.

Ftarri 3rd Anniversary Vol. 1, which was given to audience members at the 1st concert on July 4, consists of tracks by Yoko Ikeda, Léo Dupleix, Hikaru Yamada/Hayato Kurosawa, and ffrond. All of the musicians except Kurosawa appeared in this concert. Kurosawa appeared in the 2nd concert, held on July 19.
