Three-day pop and rock festival held at Naeba Ski Resort in Niigata Prefecture. It has been running since 1997 (for the first two years it was held at the base of Mount Fuji—hence the name) before moving to its present venue in 1999.

Being Japan’s most famous rock festival this one attracts some of the biggest names from the music world: Beck, Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Björk, Motörhead, Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Oasis, and Coldplay, to name but a few, have all made an appearance at the festival in the past.

When do tickets go on sale?

Early bird tickets go on sale around the beginning of February and advance ticket sales start early April. General tickets sales begin in early June. See the Ticket Information page on the official website for the exact dates.

How do I get there?

There are over 2,000 package tours departing from 22 cities around Japan by train and bus. These are fully inclusive and offer a discount to the individual prices. This is the easiest option and the one recommended for first timers to the festival. By shinkansen you need to go to JR East Echigo-Yuzawa Station from where you can take a shuttle bus to the Fuji Rock site for ¥500. For those travelling by car, parking costs ¥3,000 per vehicle per day (motorcycle can enter for a one-off charge of ¥1,000).
