Fuji Rock Festival
Over 120,000 people went to Niigata last weekend for the annual summer festival with lots of music… Nice photo gallery on the official Japanese website.
The lineup this summer included Cure, Beastie Boys and The Chemical Brothers. Swedish trio Peter Bjorn and John deserves a special mention too! I like that the festival takes social and environmental issues seriously, with NGOs promoting povery campaigns, global warming awareness and “Save Shimokitazawa with Flower Company” (to stop the highway construction in Tokyo’s charming Shimokitazawa area).
