The announcement of the first line-up performing artists of FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL have always attracted great attention every year. And this year, a gorgeous line-up of 17 artists above was announced.


First of all, we would like to introduce Kendrick Lamar from California Compton. He was born in 1987 and is widely known as the "King of West Coast Rap" nad has just won five Grammies, including the Best Rap Album with his latest album "DAMN". Moreover,  he has shown an imposing collaboration with  SZA. The two young ingenious talents arising from the Hip-Hop music genre, will be working together on the song  "All the Stars", the lead song for the highly anticipated "Black Panther" film (airing from March) from Inspire music album. It is a miraculous dream come true to be able to witness the stage of  Kendrick Lamar and his unrivalled Hip-Hop phenomenon at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL '18.


Next we would like to introduce N.E.R.D (Backronym of No-one Ever Really Dies). Although band member Pharrell Williams is currently active in his solo career, self-titled album "No_One Ever Really Dies" was released in the name of N.E.R.D in December 2017 for the first time in 7 years. Rihanna, Ed Sheeran and many more renowned artists were invited to participate in the making of the album, including Kendrick Lamar who was mentioned previously. In other words, there might be a possibility? In witnessing the collaboration of N.E.R.D and Kendrick Lamar during FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL '18. Surely everyone aware of the news are totally heated up and look forward to the event!


Following next are SKRILLEX from Electro Music scene, and ODESZA which is well known as the runner up headliner in global scale festivals and also a music production unit striving to be the predominant new generation among its peers. In addition, other than CHVRCHES joining at the perfect timing in making appearance for FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL '18, performing artists ranging from veterans such as VAMPIRE WEEKEND, JACK JOHNSON, striking stars of the new generation from the Hip-hop scene including ANDERSON PAAK & THE FREE NATIONALS, to the recently debuted artist SUPERORGANISM who was nominated in BBC “Sound of 2018". All performing artists mentioned above sums up to a rather ravishing line-up.

■〜Once Again Aiming to be the World's Cleanest Music Festival〜
In recent years, littering and campsite reserving manners have obviously declined. Manners on those terms of each single attendant will affect the environment for FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL. As FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL aims to achieve symbiosis with nature, the event has strived to work together with all the coming guests in making the aim possible. Instead of letting the litter amount increase as much as the number of coming guests due to declining manners, we aim to make FUJI ROCK the world's cleanest music festival by calling to the participants, making sure every single individual reflect their manners in hopes of pursuing the intention of decreasing the amount of litter.
