Supersonic Osaka 2021

11:00am

Summer Sonic took a break in 2020 for the Olympics (which obviously didn’t happen) and was replaced by the Supersonic event (which was canceled). With the rescheduling of the Olympics to 2021, Supersonic is around for at least one more year.

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.

The lineup for the 2021 event includes some big international headliners, but it’s not clear that they’ll be permitted to enter Japan in time for the festival.
