Long running alternative festival in a Japanese ski resort, with big names and big views
For a change from the festival norm, Fuji Rock is a breath of fresh air – literally, as it turns out. Based high up in the Japanese ski resort of Naeba, it’s been a highlight of the world festival calendar since the late 1990s, and never fails to pull in massive headliners from a wide spectrum of genres.
Apart from the high-altitude setting, it’s also unique in its size – the two sides of the festival are separated by a forest, and the often lengthy wanders from stage to stage are an undoubted part of the Fuji Rock experience.
As you’d imagine, it’s also a great place to check out Japanese food and culture, though it’s also well set up for non-Japanese visitors and the lineup favours western bands over local talent (though certainly not exclusively).
Take the Dragondola cable car to the top of the mountain, where you can look down on the festival below from a unique and mind-blowing viewpoint.
