    Kid in a swing couldn’t be happier

    My kids (Finn, aged 7) and Meara (aged, 2) perfectly bookend the kid spectrum at Fuji Rock. Any older and he may be too cool for Gorillaz and any younger they may not be able to keep down the curry at Queen Sheeba’s. Finn went to his first EDM show years before many of you even heard of the genre, checking out (Diplo, the better half of Major Lazer) when he was just 7 months in his mama’s belly. Here’s a few tips for you to have kidstravagant experience.

    1)Stay close to the food.
    That’s right, I’m swapping frequent trips to beer tent for non-stop food stall action this year. In fact, my whole geo-location and stage traveling itinerary is gonna be based around food stuffs. Oasis is gonna rock my world, and I would say the same for World Court but it’s transforming into something else this year? Basically, I’m planning on spending most of my time in a set of camping chairs at Green Stage parked high atop the amphitheater just near the trees and the wheelchair platform. This makes it a quick trip for transporting soba noodles, sausage on a stick, etc.

    Fuji Rock Prep: Where to Buy Camping Gear


    In the run up to the festival, we always get lots of enquiries about camping gear.  However, when camping at Fuji Rock, your first concern should be whether or not you’ve bought a camping ticket yet or not.

    Wanna Kick Out the Jams? Try the Red Marquee Mother F***ers


    red marquee

    Of Fuji Rock’s main stages, the Red Marquee is the most diverse, by day functioning as an indie showcase for newish indie acts with one or two big hits or who are currently killing it on tour, and by night turning into a big room dance club for an international mix of DJs and electronic acts. This year they appear to be doing away with Sunday Sessions, an after midnight showcase to discover weird, new and high energy local Japanese electronic bands and hybrid acts. Or possibly they are merging Sunday Sessions with the Planet Groove showcase, which traditionally was only on Friday night, but has now taken over Sunday as well.

    So what precisely is the Red Marquee?  READ MORE

    Chatting with Cellos


    2cellos5

    When thinking about which bands to check out at Japan’s premiere rock festival this summer, a pair of classically trained cellists might not be at the top of your list, but they should be. 2Cellos are no ordinary cellists and their main stage set Sunday should be a sight to behold.  This pair of young men hailing from Zagreb, Croatia are taking the cello places no one ever thought possible. They’re bringing the instrument out from behind the stuffy, often pretentious atmosphere of the orchestra setting and showcasing it on the main stage, attracting millions through the Internet and rocking summer festivals around the world.
