Festival Echo Fuji Rock, Working With Forests

Fuji Rock Festival is held amidst the forests of Naeba. Listening to music while surrounded by the green forests is an extraordinary experience. Fuji Rock aims to take care of the beauty year round rather then just the one period each summer. Decreasing the amount of waste the festival produces and taking care of the forest along with festival audience is just one of the many things the festival does to support the environment.


Fuji Rock Festival turns the respect for the forests surrounding the venue into action to protect them alongside Niigata prefecture, the towns of Yuzawa and Naeba, and the many supporters who come to Fuji Rock in the Fuji Rock Forest Project.
