July – August 2001

The Fuji Rock Festival 2001 was held July 27th, 28th & 29th, at the Naeba Resort in the mountains of Northwest Japan, and it was a blast! I was very happy to be able to attend with my wife this year. More than 100 bands and artists from around the world performed on six or seven stages and there was even a weird Circus from England. I couldn’t cover the whole festival (it’s very big) but we roamed around with 60,000 or so other (mainly Japanese) music fans. Headliners from the West included Neil Young, Eminem, Oasis, Patti Smith Group, DJ Tricky, Wilko Johnson, and many many more. Here are some views of the Festival.
