All the fun of a music festival minus the portaloos and camping. Just remember the way back to your hotel instead of your tent.
For one weekend in August, Tokyo plays host to a three day line up of international and home grown acts at this hugely popular music festival in urban surroundings. Located in Chiba on the outskirts of Tokyo, conference centres, baseball stadiums, beaches and parkland are transformed to create a haven for music fans to see their favourite bands all in one place. In addition to the music stages there are entertainers, food stalls, fairground rides, exhibition stands and plenty of sponsors handing out freebies. Being Japan it is extremely well organised and as each evening draws to an end the crowds effortlessly return to Tokyo without chaos or drama by public transport to either continue the party elsewhere or to enjoy a good night's sleep in a hotel so they can do it all again the following day.
In the past Summer Sonic has attracted acts such as Green Day, Rihanna, Avril Lavigne, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jay-Z and Lady Gaga. At the same time, Summer Sonic is also held in Osaka and acts usually perform at both venues during the three days.
