There's nowhere else to turn when looking for a great lineup of music, cultural activities, and generally mingling in a crowd of people whose intentions are to have the best of fun - it's all condensed into one spectacular activity called Fuji Rock Festival.
Regular Fuji Rock goers will delight in knowing that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the festival since it took shape back in 1997 – and of course that comes with much fanfare. For one, the headliners of the festival this year include superstars Red Hot Chili Peppers, American singer/multi-instrumentalist Beck, and Icelandic legends (and a Japan favourite) Sigur Ros. Other prominents acts include James Blake, Disclosure, Stereophonics and Explosions In The Sky. Japanese metal-idol girl band sensation BabyMetal are making their first appearance there.
Besides the all-star lineup, punters are able to engage in a whole host of activities. Families with kids are able to enjoy Kidsland, where heaps of child-friendly facilities and attractions are available. The Palace of Wonder is a fusion of art and performance, and this year sees the Los Icarios Flying Circus take centre stage at this attraction. There is also the Tokoro Tengoku, a riverside attraction that turns into a movie theatre at night!
With this much going on, this year's Fuji Rock Festival is looking to etch a deep impression amongst many!
