    I have only been to fuji rock once (2003) but it is a very amazing festival because of where it is held at...the line up is usually ok but not amazing..

    How much did the whole thing cost you?? Airfare, transport, food, etc.

    Also, did you on site camp??

    And was it easy getting to the festival site?

    round trips flights at the time were cheap..$600...I camped which was $30 I think? Tranport, just hop on the trains and they take you everywhere...They had shuttles from the trains stations to the festivals when you got up to Niigata..I would guestimate it would be around $2000 total with the festival ticket? but I was actually living in Japan at the time...

    Yes sir! Summersonic was a week later with Radiohead as the headliner...It was amazing since it was my 1st time seeing radiohead and being outside of my country made it all the more stranger...but overall summersonic that year had a terrible line up...I had to sit through good charlotte for a good spot for RH...

    Bjork, Massive Attack and Underworld were the headliners at Fuji but I missed Underworld since I didn't get a ticket for the 1st day...Massive Attack blew me away with a stage setup that they have not used since that tour....

    I really liked the Fuji Rock 2007 lineup...i woulda have really loved to have seen beasties and Justice on the same day. I wonder who they will get for this year...should be fun to watch all these festivals start announcing their lineups within the next couple of months.
    Upcoming Shows:
    Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields
    U2: 6/28 @ United Center

    Yeah, the Fuji Rock lineups tend to be pretty solid. Summersonic also usually has enough good stuff to see per day, despite all the awful pop acts.

    This thread makes me miss fumfum

    Summersonic has a lot of pop stuff that makes me cringe but there is also good stuff.

    I thought the Fuji line up last year was pretty good.

    I would like to go and spend a few extra days in Tokyo.

    This woman I work with from Japan said that the area that the Fuji rock festival is in is like the Alabama of Japan. I doubt it's that bad.

    Sketchy how? IIRC, that is the source they have used for the last couple of years for people purchasing outside of japan?

    yes, I'm sure that's one of their prime decision making strategies when they are picking dates.

    Fack...I'd LOVE to go to Japan someday...
    And an incentive will most likely be a festival like Fuji Rock...someday...

    I'd need a whole bunch of spending money though for all that cool shit that never makes its way to the U.S....

    Hi,

    You can take a bullet train from Tokyo, it is in Joetsu line, and get off Echigo Yuzawa station. I think it will take an hour or so.
    There is a free shuttle service from the station. It takes 40 minutes to get the venue.
