Fuji Rock Festival will be cancelled for the first time ever due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers said.
Last year, Japan’s biggest annual music event, held in the summer, attracted 130,000 people over four days.
“We had hoped the pandemic would abate in time to hold this summer’s festival as scheduled and were moving forward with planning,” the organisers said on their website. “We apologise for taking so long to inform everyone of this decision.”
Fuji Rock Festival had been scheduled for three days from August 21.
