Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival Adds Vampire Weekend, JPEGMAFIA, and More Headliners

The Fuji Rock Festival in Japan has added new artists to its 2022 lineup, including headliner Vampire Weekend.

Vampire Weekend, who will headline the first day of the festival, are joined by three other newcomers: rapper and producer JPEGMAFIA, Mongolian metal band The Hu and Indian metal band Bloodywood.

The four newly added artists will join previously announced artists including Jack White, Halsey, Foals, Bonobo, DC Fountains, Dinosaur Jr, Syd, Arlo Parks, Black Pumas, Tom Misch, Mura Masa, Hiatus Kaiyote, Superorganism, Japanese Breakfast, Snail . Mail and more.

More acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

The annual festival, which was established in 1997, will return to Naeba Ski Resort in Niigata Prefecture from July 29-31 this year. Advance tickets for this year’s festival are now on sale until June 16.

This marks the return of international artists to the Fuji Rock Festival after a 2021 edition featuring an all-Japanese lineup. The festival was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and instead screened classic Fuji Rock sets from previous years online.
