    Looking like a hot one!

    Blue skies and mercury rising!

    The rainy season is upon us in Japan, which means summer is right around the corner. And with the season inevitably comes the heat! For most of us it has been quite a while since we’ve been able to enjoy a summer festival, and some of us may have forgotten just how hot (and dangerous) the summer temperatures can get. But don’t let that get in the way of having a great time at Fuji Rock!  Here are some little tips to help beat the heat while you rock the fest.

    Mind Your Manners, Please!


    Aside from the unique opportunity to see our favorite bands in beautiful natural mountainous surroundings, one of the best things about Fuji Rock Festival is how relaxing and comfortable the gathering can be, even among upwards of 100,000 attendees in past years. This is made possible in part by everyone minding their manners and cooperating together to make Fuji Rock the best festival it can be. With just a bit of common sense, an awareness of our surroundings, and by following just a few guidelines we can continue to keep Fuji Rock a truly special experience year after year. Here are just a few of the most important things to keep in mind once you step onto the festival grounds this summer.
