Event organisers have said that the festival will take place across a range of Hakuba venues, from “sweeping mountaintop vistas, to cosy après soirées, from outdoor village stages, to indoor/outdoor onsens”.

They added: “There is no place in the world quite like Japan. From the rich cultural heritage seen everywhere from their amazing hospitality to the architecture and cuisine – Japan is at the top of everyone’s travel list whether it’s first time, or returning.”
