LIVE REPORTPYRAMID GARDEN7/30 SAT
Perfect set to help wind down before bed
There is truly no better place to end a day at the festival than at Pyramid Garden, where the grass feels like a comfortable bed and the stage is lit with dozens of colorful candles.
Caravan, a one-man Japanese musician, played his folk-inspired set right before midnight. Many were sat on the grass or getting late night drinks at the moon and candlelit stage on the west end of the festival while winding down to his music that were lullabies to the ears.
He brought out his harmonica and talked with the audience between songs as if to tell bedtime stories, reminiscing on his childhood spent in Venezuela, and about the last few years of the world. He has wandered around the world and has been creating music as a solo artist since 2001, producing about one album per year for the first decade. In 2011, he even launched his own label, Slow Flow Music.
His set consisted of tales in spoken word and song, and brought on a guest singer to accompany him halfway through the set.
For anyone looking for a slower pace of fun at Fuji Rock, many artists featured at Pyramid Garden are a must, and Caravan was the perfect act to see before heading off to bed.
