Fuji Rock Festival 2020

¥18,000 – ¥45,000

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 about a 90-minute train ride from Tokyo, it has been running since 1997 and the international crowd has been steadily increasing over the years. Held mostly outdoors (with only 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 hot springs you can soak in and nature walks, with a bit of a Glastonbury vibe (secret woodland gig anyone?), so go explore!

Note that the 2020 Olympics have shifted the date of this festival, which is usually held in July.

2019 Artist Lineup

The acts for the 2020 event have not yet been released, but to get an idea of the levels we’re dealing with, these were some of the 2019 acts:

Tickets and Accommodation

Tickets are available with bigger discounts the earlier you purchase, as well as options for two-day and three-day tickets, which are cheaper than buying separate day tickets.

Arranging transport and accommodation (be it tent or offsite) in advance is vital. For transport options, see our guide on getting to Fuji Rock.
