Summer Sonic 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. With the rescheduling of the Olympics to 2021, it’s unclear what the effect on the return of Summer Sonic in 2021 will be.

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.
