Fuji Rock is a music festival that doubles as a nature retreat. As a Californian that rarely sees lawns and lives that #droughtlife, I was in constant amazement at the lush green that is abundant on the ski resort that the festival takes place at. We spent our time accidentally hiking, eating squid on a stick, and rocking out, generally, and lucky for you I documented the whoooole thing.
A very small fraction of the campground.
Kylie absorbing Beck’s seduction skills while he serenades the crowd with ‘Debra’.
We rode the Dragondola, which is the longest gondola in the world.
It led us to a relaxing field at a higher part of the mountain.
A communal jump rope game in which different people have to jump over the rope until they get to 50. I was very impressed, I would have fucked it up.
A kind and dedicated Babymetal fan.
