Recommendation by Lemi
With 500 kilometers between them, the crowds at Summer Sonic share two days of the same musical soul. Choose between their two locations: Osaka, a cosmopolitan city known for their street food thoroughfare (Dotonbori), and Chiba, a laid-back city across Tokyo and the bay. Summer Sonic is always in early August, to make the most of Japan’s sunny season. Chiba’s crowd gets a little wet n’ wild, whether they’re at the Marine Stage in the arena or at the Beach Stage on the sand. You won’t miss out on your favorite band as they shuffle between Osaka and Chiba over the two days—with a few special exceptions. Rock is the soundtrack of choice, with a balanced mix of Japanese and international acts taking to the five stages.
