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

The four freshly added acts will join previously announced performers that include Jack White, Halsey, Foals, Bonobo, Fontaines D.C., 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 to 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 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.
