The warm-up party for Summer Sonic, Last year’s Sonic Mania featured some of the top acts from the 2018 Lineup including My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Marshmello and Clean Bandit among others. There are three stages, all with impressively rave-like names (Crystal Mountain, Sonic Wave and Space Rainbow) and enough music to keep you going into the early hours.
You can choose between two tickets: regular for ¥12,000 plus a required ¥500 drink purchase, or platinum for ¥20,000. The platinum ticket allows for a welcome drink, shuttle bus between Zozo Marine Stadium and Makuhari Messe, a special lounge and viewing area and a few other perks. Doors open at 8pm and the show starts at 10pm.
