Fuji Rock Festival Announces First Wave Of 2022 Performers: Halsey, Jack White, Foals And More

Marking the return of international artists to the Japanese festival after an all-local line-up in 2021!

Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival has unveiled the first phase of its 2022 lineup, led by headliners Jack White and Halsey, as well as Foals, Bonobo, Fontaines D.C. and more.

This marks the return of international artists to Fuji Rock Festival following a 2021 edition comprising an all-Japanese line-up. The festival was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and screened classic sets from past years of Fuji Rock online instead.

Other international artists on the line-up include Dinosaur Jr, Syd, Arlo Parks, Black Pumas, Tom Misch, Mura Masa, Hiatus Kaiyote, Superorganism, Japanese Breakfast, Snail Mail and more.

Japanese artists on the line-up include Kikagaku Moyo, Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, PUNPEE and Sherbets. See the line-up poster above, which promises “MANY more artists to be announced”.

The annual festival, which was established in 1997, will return to Naeba Ski Resort in Niigata Prefecture from July 29 to 31 this year.

Advance tickets for this year’s festival are now on sale. One-day tickets are set at 20,000 yen each, with two-day and three-day ticket options available at 36,000 yen and 46,000 yen. Campsite and auto camp tickets are also available for those hoping for the full outdoor festival experience.
