Held on the beautiful sands of Chura-sun Beach on Okinawa’s main island, Corona Sunsets has everything you need for a perfect summer festival. With four stages to choose from, headliners include Jose Gonzalez, Amp Fiddler, Naoki Serizawa and Capital Cities (plus Eden Kai if there are any Terrace House fans out there). The two-day event revolves around a chilled-out atmosphere of music, drinks and beach-life – what’s not to love? While the event started in Ibiza in 2014, it now travels the world, and Okinawa is a pretty perfect location. Last year’s event featured artists like Hot Chip and Tuxedo – so keep an eye out on the next batch of artists to be released for 2019!
Single day tickets are ¥6,800 while weekend tickets are ¥10,000 – not bad for a perfect weekend.
