On Friday doves return to the Fuji Rock festival. Always a favourite on the festival calendar. Doves set there in 2002 has often been cited by the band as one of their favourite festival sets ever.

They are due to do an autograph & acoustic sessions as well as part take in a MTV talk show. This will take place at Gan-Ban Square at the Oasis area.

MTV’s Subterranean reports that doves will be featured on this weekend’s episode. Here’s the blurb from the Subterranean blog:
