Summer Sonic is back again for 2023!
In an amazing location overlooking Tokyo Bay, the huge arena main stage and various other smaller stages are host to a wide range of acts spanning every genre. The festival is held simultaneously in Chiba and Osaka, with acts switching days — so you won’t miss out, whichever you choose.
If you’d rather get your music fix in the cool(ish) mountain air, you might prefer Fuji Rock in August.
Summer Sonic 2023 lineup
So far, only the British rock band Blur have been announced. The last time they appeared at Summer Sonic was 20 years ago.
