Accommodation at Summer Sonic Osaka

This isn’t like your typical summer weekend festival — there’s no camping. So, if you’re planning on spending the night, you’ll want a hotel in central Osaka. Our top picks include Hotel Sunplaza (very, very cheap) and Hotel Mystays in Sakaisuji-Honmachi (central and slightly classier).

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
