What better place to hold a summer rave than an uninhabited island? Exactly. Known as Monkey Island, it’s the only natural island in Tokyo Bay and is a popular day trip destination. Around 2km from Yokosuka, the ferry takes 15 minutes and isn’t included in the festival ticket, nor is the ¥200 entrance fee for the island. In total, the event will cost you ¥4,800, with all but the initial ticket required to be paid in cash on the door.
The event is starting on the weekend of July 13th and 14th with the Grand Opening Party and will then take place on July 20th and then August 3rd, 10th, 11th, 17th, 24th and 31st before a final night on September 7th. Tickets for the final six days can be bought below in advance for ¥2,650. Keep in mind that those with earlier numbered tickets will be given boarding priority for the boats back to Mikasa. If you are planning on buying alchol at the event you will need your ID, however old (or young) you are.
