Fuji Rock is the biggest music festival in the country, with between 100,000 and 150,000 people attending every year. Held in a stunning ski resort just outside Tokyo, it has been running since 1997 and the international crowd has been steadily increasing over the years. Held mostly outdoors (with ony one indoor stage) you must be well prepared for rain and shine, as you never know which way it will go. Maintaining its Japanese roots there are onsen you can soak away in and nature walks, with a bit of a Glastonbury vibe (secret woodland gig anyone?) so go explore!
This years acts include Lorde, Queens of the Stone Age, Major Lazer, Bjork, The XX and Aphex Twin! You can also see Catfish and the Bottlemen, Rag’n’Bone Man, The Amazons and Sampha.
