Self Guided Adventure


Fuji Rock Festival

7 Nights: from US$1378 per person (twin share) Trip Code: FRF

The Fuji Rock Festival is one of those magical events. Fantastic food at a great price, no queues to buy beer, all night hot spring baths, a stunning mountain setting, an incredibly friendly crowd and, of course, some of the best in British, American & Japanese indie, dance and world music.

With a line-up of such international giants, you would have thought that Japan's annual Fuji Rock festival would be better known to music-lovers across the globe. 2018's bill included Kendrick Lamar, N.E.R.D., Skrillex, Vampire Weekend, Chvrches, Jack Johnson and MGMT, so we can't wait to see who'll be there in 2019.

In an era when you have to stump up a deposit nearly a year in advance to get your hands on a ticket for Glastonbury, Fuji Rock remains an undiscovered gem on the world festival circuit; a festival where the original counter-culture ideals of Glastonbury still hold true, where "alternative" still carries some meaning, and where relentless consumerism can be left behind for the weekend.

Oh, and the toilets are clean, there isn't a spot of litter to be seen, there are public showers available - there is even a steak-eating competition with the chance to win a year's supply of beef! Fuji Rock is a festival to treasure and we can guarantee you will have a fantastic time.

Before and after the festival you will be having plenty of fun with a stay in Japan's exciting capital city, Tokyo. Use the included five-day JR East Rail Pass to explore the many sights and sounds of this amazing metropolis before joining one of our "Insider" staff and other Fuji Rockers for an included dinner and drinks. After dinner we will head out for optional karaoke - it should be a good night and offer a great opportunity to really "get beneath the surface" of this fascinating city.

Dates 2019
Although the festival dates have not been officially announced yet, Fuji Rock 2019 looks likely to take place on Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July 2019, with entry to the campsite on Thursday 25th. Our package is designed for you to arrive in Tokyo on Tuesday 23rd July, however if you wish to arrive earlier or leave later do let us know! We'd be happy to extend your arrangements in Japan.
