The Fuji Rock Festival is set on a ski resort
on Mt Fuji in Japan in what has got
to be one of the most ideal settings for a music festival
- it takes place in a thicket of lush forests, streams,
and hills. The confirmed dates are July 26 - 28 (this weekend) and the Fuji Rock 2013 lineup has been announced, tickets are on sale now.
Festival goers can watch music on 7 different stages,
and the largest can accomodate 30,000 people. They
can also take the gondola (renamed the 'Dragondola'
for extra special local flavor) to the top of the
mountain to hang out in the Day Dreaming &
Silent Breeze area for a break and some great
vantage points to the surrounding mountains.
