Fuji Rock Festival 2010: Air, Massive Attack, Muse

Posted on 3 Mar. 2010

Everyone here at TokyoFashion.com looks forward to the beginning of March. Why? Because that’s when the big Japanese summer music festivals begin to announce their lineups. Summer Sonic and Fuji Rock are the two big ones, but there are others including Big Beach Fest, Rock in Japan, Rising Sun, etc.

If you have unlimited time and money, we recommend you hit them all! If you have to pick just one, Fuji Rock might be our first recommendation. Fuji Rock is held in the beautiful green mountains – not too far from Tokyo via Shinkansan – at Naeba Ski Resort. More than just music, Fuji Rock is about the beauty of nature, getting away from it all, and chilling out.

The highlights of this year’s lineup so far – which takes place over three days from July 30 to Aug 1st – include Air, Massive Attack, Muse, Belle And Sebastian, Boom Boom Satellites, and Boys Noize.

Here is the full Fuji Rock Festival 2010 first lineup announcement, in alphabetical order:

Rumors are still swirling about other possible acts that could be added to Fuji Rock later – including a lot of internet posts mentioning Bob Dylan and/or Gorillaz. Those are just rumors for now, though.

We expect Summer Sonic to make their first announcement very soon as well. We’ll post more once that line-up has been announced.
