Makuhari Messe


Time Out says

The acoustics at this huge convention complex in Chiba City are generally bad, the place is impersonal and it’s some distance from downtown Tokyo. Still, it’s the home of the Summer Sonic rockfest, and big bands such as the Prodigy have entertained full houses here.

What’s on

Summer Sonic

What this music festival lacks in terms of a picturesque setting, it more than makes up for in convenience. While other festivals boast views of rolling hills or stunning lakes, Summer Sonic has easy access from the city, an abundance of clean toilets and a cracking lineup – sometimes that’s all you need. This year's Summer Sonic is returning with what is sure to be an impressive lineup of international and local artists on the weekend of August 17 and 18. So far, this two-day summer fest has revealed that One Republic and Major Lazer will headline in Tokyo, with performances also confirmed from Italian rock band Måneskin, Norwegian singer-songwriter Aurora, American indie pop group AJR, Madison Beer and South African singer Tyla. While the full schedule hasn’t been released yet, two-day tickets are now available through the online pre-sale for ¥36,000 per person. One-day passes cost ¥19,000 per person and will be available for booking online from March 20.
