Japan's many music festivals provide an astonishing variety of settings, styles and genres, along with appearances by many world-class acts and a healthy dose of anarchy otherwise so rarely found on these shores.

Mega-events like Fuji Rock and Summer Sonic aside, the supply ranges from refined indie fests and relaxed beach parties to fine-tuned techno and taiko celebrations – so all you have to do is check out our list below, choose your favourite, and get ready to rock out in the great outdoors (or indoors). Tip: most music festivals in Japan offer early bird tickets are a discount, so it's best to book early to enjoy the deal.
