T-Shirt Auction for Japanese earthquake

Despite the music, beer and general high jinx, continuing to support the victims of the Tohoku earthquake was still very much on everybody’s minds at this year’s Fuji Rock Festival.

Continued support in the North of Japan is still greatly needed – recovery from this disaster will take years not months.

This is why Tokyo Indie and the artists at this year’s festival want to help raise even more money for Tohoku. Whilst covering the festival we asked the artists appearing at the festival to show their support and to sign our Charity Fuji Rock T-Shirt. In the end The Music, CSS, The Kaiser Chiefs, Digitalism, The Vaccines, Mogwai, The Naked and Famous, Gruff Rhys and Noah and the Whale put pen to tee.
