From the Japan Times:
Headliners at the Green Stage were Nine Inch Nails on Friday, Bjork on Saturday, and The Cure on Sunday, but this year the attendance was 110,000 — the lowest it’s been since 2004…
A report from a very narrow perspective…
Oshi-san waits with the gear in front of Hikarie Building in Shibuya.
In front of a backdrop from the past. Of what it was in the past…
On the road after Dustin and Takako return with coffee and croissants.
At a pitstop for bathroom on the way, an abandoned travel good luck charm.
While we wait for Dustin…
Schedule of events at the Fuji Rock check-in.
“We’re going here.”
An oddly toned exhortation for vehicles to slow down: “You bastard! Slow down! Thank you!”
Dustin Wong and Takako Minekawa stroll to Red Marquee.
Green Stage (the biggest) panarama
Random crowd shot at Green Stage.

The biggest stages at large music festivals are also experienced as media even when you are there.
Complete with announcements and commercials.
The meal tickets were accepted here. 600 JPY bought a small bowl of chicken curry and some boiled mountain vegetables.
No where to sit, so we stopped to eat at the Red Marquee.
Daughter. Tasteful, inoffensive and ultimately… not that interesting…
Numerous campgrounds sprinkled throughout the ski area.
Dustin carries a bag head sling-style.
From the upper slope, moving closer to the Avalon Stage. Avalon uses off-the-grid energy. No Nukes! It has the most hippy-like essence of Fuji Rock.
Front of Avalon Stage. Sunflowers can absorb radiation and are recommended if you have a nuclear disaster in your neighborhood.
Dustin Wong’s solo set.
Takako shares the mic with Dustin.
The principals of the dance company, Strange Kinokos, came to see Dustin!

Dustin played a Foundland showcase at Vacant in Ura-Harajuku.
Next we we’re going to Fuji Rock on July 28. He’s playing the NEW POWER GEAR Stage / Gypsy Avalon at 6:30. Should be interesting…
July 21 was an evening of drumless, vocal-less music. Drums are inciters of exuberance and penchant for violence. It expresses emotions beyond that which can be stated in speech.
