One of the largest annual international music festivals in Japan, Summer Sonic is a two-day extravaganza held simultaneously in Osaka and Tokyo.
Scheduled for August 20th and 21st, Summer Sonic 2016 will feature the likes of legendary English rockers Radiohead, indie it-guys Two Door Cinema Club, and everyone’s new favourite singer-songwriter James Bay (the one with the cheek bones).

This year, Singapore’s very own ZoukOut will lend their partying-hard-on-the-beach expertise to co-host the Beach Stage in Tokyo.
In a bid to expand the Zouk name to a more internationally recognized brand, this is but Zouk’s first foray into the Japanese scene, and Mr Andrew Li, Genting Hong Kong's vice-president of lifestyle and food and beverage concepts, told The Straits Times that other "strategic locations in Japan have been identified for standalone ZoukOut events in future".
The Beach Stage line-up includes The Chainsmokers, south Korean rapper ZICO, and Zouk’s own resident beat-maker and groove shaker Zushan.
Summer Sonic 2016 is happening on August 20th and 21st at the QVC Marine Field & Makuhari Messe. Find out more info about the line-up and tickets here.
