Summer Sonic is a festival we’d usually associate with the Land of the Rising Sun, as a rock/alternative rock staple that brings the best in the business to one location for the revelry of fans. We spoke about it at length when we were talking about festivals happening in the region.
The festival has now announced an exciting expansion into China, towering against the country's own Strawberry Festival in Beijing. Aware of this, organizers have not disappointed and have curated an extraordinary line-up to play at the first-ever Summer Sonic Shanghai.
The line-up includes alternative rock veterans, Placebo, guitar God wielding visual kei stalwarts LUNA SEA – from which guitar Gods Sugizo and Inoran are stopping by Singapore for a leg of their Best Bout tour — indie rock favourites The Kooks and The Fratellis, pop/jazz fusion band Dirty Loops and more.
Tickets prices and sales haven’t been announced as of yet. Organizers are also yet to release the full line-up of the event (yes, besides these crazies, there are more).
Stay tuned to Bandwagon for more updates.
