Fuji Rock Festival '21

20 FRI, 21 SAT, 22 SUN, AUGUST

To all who are looking forward to this year’s Fuji Rock,

I want to truly thank everyone who continues to support Fuji Rock, and also those who have held on to the outrageously priced tickets for a year. 
I am truly grateful for your support of Fuji Rock. 
As promised, we are planning this year’s festival so we can enjoy Fuji Rock at Naeba with two year’s worth of energy. But the corona virus hasn’t abated yet. 
We continue to discuss how and in what way we are able to hold this year’s festival. 
We will abandon bringing foreign artists over.
We will decrease capacity according to health guidelines. 
We will implement comprehensive measures against infection. 
Cooperation of not only festival staff but also every one of the people attending will be needed. 
These are the decisions that we have come to.

Let’s put together a “special Fuji Rock” during the Corona pandemic among the beautiful forest and clear streams we are blessed with at Naeba this year with amazing Japanese artists. We will strive to do our best so we can all enjoy music amidst nature again.

I hope that we can all share some courage and energy with each other at Fuji Rock during these trying times. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Fuji Rock!

Everybody please stay healthy.

And finally, I want to express my condolences to all who have been lost to Covid-19 and my prayers to those who are fighting it now. I also give my respect to the medical professionals and everyone who is fighting on the front lines of the pandemic.
