Summer Sonic Osaka 2023


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.

Summer Sonic 2022 line up

On Saturday, August 20, Post Malone will headline and amazing acts such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Megan Thee Stallion, One Ok Rock, Primal Scream, Asian Kung-fu Generation, and CL will be on the bill.

On Sunday, August 21, The 1975 will headlne and amazing acts such as The Libertines, The Offspring, St Vincent, All Time Low, Kacey Musgraves, The Linda Lindas, and Hyde will also perform.
