Music Circus ’19 Osaka

11:00am – 9:00pm
¥9,800 – ¥17,500

Featuring Galantis, Mike Williams and Yellow Claw among others, this music festival is a lesser-known gem on the Japanese summer music scene.

On day one you can see big names like Galantis, Mike Williams, AK-69, and Badhop while day two offers Yellow Claw, Sky-Hi, Yamatomaya and PKCZ among others. Started in 2014, the festival ends a little earlier than you might be used to (8pm) but does then have an hour long fireworks display – so it’s not all bad.

Tickets are available for ¥9,800 per person for a day or ¥17,500 for two days. They also offer student discounts, group tickets and premium tickets, the latter requiring a regular ticket to go alongside it.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
