The willfully, brilliantly uncommercial Frue parties only seem to roll around every six months or less, presumably to give the promoters time to recoup some of the money they lost on the last one. Yet their festival, held for the first time last year in the Shizuoka countryside, turned out to be such a crowd-pleaser that it's back. Assembling at the Tsumagoi ski resort in Kakegawa will be genre-bending favourites Bruno Pernadas, Japanese DJ Powder, Brazil's Yamandu Costa, and Theo Parrish, while German dance innovator Acid Pauli is returning for a second round. The twin stages – one out in the open, the other indoors – will be rocking through the night on both Friday and Saturday, while the festival market will offer an eclectic selection of food, drink and crafts.
