SOME MIGHT SAYONARA!

And - hey, wait for it - Hothouse Flowers are playing as well! COME ON!...

OASIS, MANIC STREET PREACHERS, TRAVIS, STEREOPHONICS, AT THE DRIVE-IN and DEFTONES are the first acts confirmed for the FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL in JAPAN.

This year the festival is five years old, and will take place from July 27-29 at the Naeba Ski Resort – the same location as the previous two years.

Oasis will headline the first night of the festival (July 27), although it is currently unclear which other bands will play over the four stages. Other confirmed bands that will appear include Hothouse Flowers, Dropkick Murphys and Rickie Lee Jones.

According to the festival website, [url=]www.smash-uk.com/frf01.com, promoters are in negotiations to “add at least three more stellar names to the bill” in the run-up to the event.
