Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2007, the Fuji Rock Festival is the largest rock music festival in Japan where nearly 100,000 people congregate every year. The venue has been set at the Naeba Ski Resort since 1999, and the schedule has been revised to a total of 3 days and more stages have been added since then. Big-name headliners perform at the festival each year, so this event gets a lot of attention from overseas media as well. Although it is called a rock festival, a wide range of artists perform there, from grand old names of rock music to up-and-coming new faces, from jazz to techno musicians. The real thrill of this festival is that you can enjoy the music at your leisure in the grandeur of nature. Moreover, other attractions such as food booths and massage tents are set up for your pleasure.
