Ultra Japan is the biggest EDM festival in the country and you don’t even need to catch the train to a paddock in the middle of nowhere.
Held since 2014 at the outdoor Ultra Park in Odaiba, the festival is part of the Ultra Music Festival global circuit that also includes stops in Bali, Mexico, Miami and Brazil. In 2016, the same event attracted a staggering 120,000 people over three days.
Live headliners for 2017 included Underworld, Pendulum, Empire of the Sun and KSHMR while DJ headliners included veterans Carl Cox, Sasha and John Digweed along with major draw cards Steve Aoki and Tiesto.
Prices aren’t so cheap – but at least your transport will be negligible if you live in Tokyo.
