  1. We went a couple of years ago. The following blog post was quite helpful: http://blog.tokyogigguide.com/2013/06/fuji-rock-festival-tips-2013.html. I wouldn't want to get a coach there from Tokyo (I'm not sure if it's possible), it was over an hour on the shinkansen then probably another 45 mins on the festival shuttle bus (note that the festival is no longer anywhere near mount Fuji, it is at Naeba Ski Resort). The closest train station to the festival is Echigo-Yuzawa station, the shuttles run from the station and it's pretty much a fool-proof transfer.
  2. Green Day confirmed for Hurricane/Southside the week before. Pretty much guarantees them for Werchter and Roskilde
  3. Wow, I hadn't realised that Southside was cancelled completely! We were at Hurricane and thought that only getting 1 full day was bad enough. Given what happened at RAR this year as well, it looks like the Germany authorities are being really strict on the festivals at the minute. Still, better safe than sorry. Hopefully they will offer a reasonable refund package (I notice that the official site has been quiet since).
  4. Sadly it's probably the latter, this festival stopped being about big bands a while back now. Somewhere around the time the city started to make the organisers pay to use the land.
