Fuji Rock Festival
Imagine walking through a mystical forest as it marries a meadow of blooming Chrysanthemum and Cherry Blossom trees.
Petals falling from the sky and dancing all around you, enticing you to sway along with their rhythm.

You look up and see the monolithic Mt. Naeba towering in the background— you pause to take a deep breath of fresh mountain air. In this moment of tranquility, you must be imagining the faint sound of music coming from the distance. Could it be real?
Fuji Rock Festival
Allured, you continue your walk through the meadow; you notice the captivating sound of music echoing through the trees. You follow the sound, baffled and entranced, and the music begins to become recognizable. It is indeed the rhythm you’ve been swaying to all along. In fact, it’s your favorite band, jamming and sending musical vibrations throughout the natural scenery! Björk, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Jack Johnson, and Muse. . . Welcome to the Fuji Rock Festival — Japan’s biggest (and most stunning) music festival.

What Fuji Rock Festival Special:
What separates the Fuji Rock Festival from every other festival is it’s absolute devotion to preserving the natural landscape around it, boasting to be the cleanest festival in the world. A difficult task, considering over 100,000 people will be all-in to dance, party, and bask in the pristine scenery. The festival is run on almost entirely renewable energy and bio-fuels, and has strict rules about smoking in public, as well as policies that make it easy to dispose of trash and recycle.
Wondering about the vibe? The vibe is so safe and family friendly that kids frequently forgo camping, and even simply sleep under the stars. If you’re from the western world, the Fuji Rock Festival is one of the best possible introductions to eastern culture — the Japanese can be quite koi. Their kind and playful hearts are yet another astonishing aspect of the festival.
So Why Fuji Rock Festival?
When this summer rolls around, and the festival season is in full swing, what will you be doing?

Exploring the untouched Japanese oasis, swaying to the rhythm alongside the trees, the falling petals of exotic flowers, and the rowdy, rockin’ Fuji Rock community.
