Summer Music Festivals 2016

pixabypixaby

Many music festivals are held in Japan during the summer. Some of you may be visiting Japan to join the festival and to enjoy sightseeing at the same time.

If you are interested in going to those festivals, you should purchase the tickets in advance as some will go sold out pretty early.


1. Rock, Pop, Electronic, and J-Pop, All-In-One Fes

Fuji Rock Festival and Summer Sonic are the two biggest festivals held in Japan every year with the gorgeous lineup.

FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL is undeniably the most well-known music festival in Japan held in the beautiful nature of Niigata Prefecture. (It's not held in Mt. Fuji!) This year, the headlines of the event are Sigur Ros, BECK, and RED HOT CHILIPEPPERS, and many more bands and artists from both overseas and Japan.

While FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL is great for nature-lovers, SUMMER SONIC is an attractive festival for those who want to enjoy festivals in cities. It is held in Chiba and Osaka. This year's headliners are Radiohead and UNDERWORLD.
