Watch X Japan’s Yoshiki join Skrillex on stage during Fuji Rock Festival

They performed in front of a 40,000-strong crowd.

You can always count on festivals to bring musicians together in unexpected ways. And over the weekend, the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan saw a couple of surprise joint efforts, including one from Skrillex and Yoshiki.

Before the American DJ wrapped up his set, he invited the X Japan founding member on stage to join him for a spectacular encore. They kicked things off with a beautiful instrumental version of the group’s song, “Endless Rain,” followed by a headbanging performance of Skrillex’s “Cinema” and “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.”
