Aiming to represent the "nature and symbiosis of music", Fuji Rock was born in the summer of 1997 in Fuji-Tenjinyama ski resort.
Although in its first year, Fuji Rock was to stop in the second day as it received a direct hit from a typhoon, the venue was transfered to Tokyo Toyosu in 1998. From 1999 on, Fuji Rock moved to Naeba Ski Resort and the foundation of today's Fuji Rock was built.
And this year, Fuji Rock will celebrate its 21st edition on the 28th to 30th July at Naeba Ski Resort!
