The Fuji Rock Festival coming in July

The Fuji Rock Festival is due to take place at the Nauba Ski Resort in Niigata, Japan, this July.

Artists performing at last year's event included Kasabian, Underworld, My Bloody Valentine and The Go! Team, in addition to the likes of CSS, The Breeders, Primal Scream, The Cribs and former Stone Roses singer Ian Brown.

This year promises to be bigger and better.

Performances will take place across three stages: the Green Stage and the White Stage, while the Red Marquee will play host to more intimate gigs. In the evening, the latter will turn into a club tent until the early hours of the morning.

Alternative varieties of music will be performed and played at different venues around the resort, reports Whatsonwhen.

Those wishing to take a break and get away from the music for a while can take a trip up to the top of the mountain in the Dragondola cable car.

A free bus service will be available to transport ticket holders to the festival.
