Summer Sonic is one of the biggest annual music festivals in Japan, taking place in both Chiba and Osaka. While some of the acts only play at one of the locations, they both usually coincide with each other. There are a few different stages at the event with some indoors. If you go, make sure you keep the map handy as the festival area is quite large. The Marine stage is set up in the stadium nearby as its the largest, typically carrying big headliners like 2016’s Fergie and Weezer. If you go to Summer Sonic, bring some sunscreen a towel and prepare to buy copious water to beat the brutal heat of the summer.
