Summer Sonic Osaka 2022

11:00am

Summer Sonic took a break in both 2020 (due to the Olympics) and again in 2021 (again due to the rescheduled Olympics) but it’s set to return in 2022! It was replaced by an event called Supersonic, which was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID, so music fans in Osaka will be hanging out for some festival action.

Summer Sonic is known for featuring some of the biggest acts from around the world. The festival is held simultaneously in Chiba and Osaka, with acts switching days – so you won’t miss out, whichever you choose.

Tickets for the 2019 event were ¥13,800 for one day or ¥36,000 for three days with a single-day platinum option for ¥25,000. The event is usually held at Maishima Sonic Park. Children aged under 12 can enter for free if accompanied by an adult, but a second child required a ‘kid ticket’ which costs ¥3,500 and is available on the door.

Going to be in Tokyo instead? Check out our guide on how much to budget for Summer Sonic in the capital city.

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