Fuji Rock Festival 2018 First Wave of Lineup Announced. Acts include Kendrick Lamar, N.E.R.D., Skrillex, Vampire Weekend, CHVRCHES, James Bay and more
The Fuji Rock 2018 Lineup Announcement today, introducing the first wave of acts, promised to impress.
No one can argue with that. It is a robust lineup!
Leading the pack is rapper Kendrick Lamar, a super heavy weight in the Music Festival landscape and sure to draw in a massive global crowd.
N.E.R.D. fans are in for a treat with the much anticipated reprisal of hip hop duo, Pharrell Williams and band mate Chad Hugo.
Skrillex - Well, that is one set that will ‘go off’!
Of course there are the delectable tones of rock bands, Vampire Weekend, CHVRCHES and MGMT, the earthy acoustics of Jack Johnson, multi-award winning James Bay, electro muses Odesza, Years & Years and the unique sounds of Tune-Yards, not to mention the funky yet unapologetic Anderson Paak & The Free Nationals.
....and there are more and there will be more revealed in subsequent Lineup Announcements.
Fuji Rock 2018 will held in Naeba Ski Resort, Niigata Japan, from 27-29 July 2018.
Each year Fuji Rock only gets bigger and better. It is bound to sell out.

Comfortable clothes that do not restrict movement and non-slip trekking shoes are recommended.
Weather at the festival is likely to vary and extreme drops or rise in temperature is not rare. Please prepare clothing suited to all weather conditions. Water proof jackets and shoes will be very useful.
Bees, wasps and ticks reside in the area. Loose fitting clothes and exposing your skin should be avoided to prevent insects from coming in to your clothing.
What should I bring with me?
Raincoat (proper one for camping & hiking) as no umbrellas are allowed in the festival site.
Hand towels (handy as sun shade, wipe, cooler, etc.)
Extra change of clothes (in case of rain, sweat, mud).
Your favorite sneakers that have a good grip. Even better if they're waterproof!
Hat (to avoid sunburn, heat). A must!
Portable ashtray. A must for smokers.
Warm jacket (It gets cold at night. Waterproof parkas can be used as raincoats as well).
Rubbish bin bag (very useful).
Pocket tissue (in case there's no toilet paper).
First Aid Kit (so that you can take care of any minor injuries)
How do I get to the festival?
Take the shinkansen (bullet train) to JR East Echigo-Yuzawa station. Shinkansen tickets can be purchased in advance for both assigned seats and an unassigned seating. The trains heading back to Tokyo can get very busy after the festival, so be sure to buy a return ticket, too. You can get on the Joetsu Shinkansen at Tokyo and Ueno stations in Tokyo. A shuttle bus from Echigo-Yuzawa station will take you to the festival grounds for 500 yen and comes with a free return to the station.
