    Sean’s Best of the Fest: Full Fuji!

    We’re back, and in a big way! No half-measures this year like social distancing and no alcohol sales but ramping it up like Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters said it, “Full Fuji.”

    “Palace of Wonder”

    Sitting majestically on top of a hill, the Spiegel Tent was a beacon for those who dug deep inside of themselves and wanted one more party. Sure there were the purists who thought the old location was better, but I’m not going to waste words discussing this. And it’s a big up for those that made it happen, balancing a 100-year old tent on uneven ground, and even pulling it out of a container after four years of moldy storage. The art was back thanks to Debs and Strapper and the crew, who are the blood and sweat of the festival.

    Big Willie’s Burlesque is Back!

    The return of the Palace of Wonder would not be complete without Big Willie’s Burlesque: a quartet of musicians backed up by two lovely dancers, Carolina Cerisola and Alyssa Marquez. The group regularly perform in Hollywood and have been mainstays at Fuji Rock since 2004. We’re thrilled to catch up with the man they call Big Willy (Willie McNeill) and get his impressions on two decades of Fuji rocking!

    Asa-Chang and Junray Added, Will Bring Solid Saturday Vibes

    • June 16, 2023 ● Bands

    It can be easy to get caught up in the main body of Fuji Rock, the Green and White Stages, the Red Marquee, etc. But don’t overlook Pyramid Garden, tucked quietly away from the big and brassy action. If you do, you could miss out on some of the festival’s most interesting acts, like newly added to the lineup but veterans of the Japanese avant-garde scene Asa-Chang and Junray.

    Let Ginger Root Spice Up Your Fuji Rock!

    As anyone remotely interested in the Japanese music scene (or just the globally hip music scene in general) knows, City Pop has been having a little bit of a moment for a little bit of time. A fairly general term for 70’s and 80’s western influenced Japanese pop music, it has been a goldmine for DJs like Fuji Rock favorite Night Tempo with its odd dreaminess and hard to place nostalgia. Most people are just milking the old records though. Cameron Lew, better known as Ginger Root, however, has been going a step further and making it on his own.
