The Sex Pistols, Coldplay and The Verve really aren't that hot either... Prodigy, Fatboy Slim and Devo is dreamy though.

But Zebrahead... wtf they are still around, might as well just get 311.

No not at all...Fuji Rock is like Glastonbury...Huge and Massive will lots of different stages very spread out....and they usually have a much better line up while Summer Sonic is more "mainstream"...

I have always loved the Fuji Rock line ups, that and it seems like a great festival in general. I would love to go one year.

And is it just me... or does this festival poster seems like it was pulled from the create a festival contest?

Fuji Rock had a sick lineup last year with Beasties, Chemical Brothers, Cure, Muse, Iggy Pop& The Stooges, Justice, SMD, Battles... Id love to go if Prodigy played with some other huge names...

oasis/prodigy tour would be awesome. and isn't out of the question, thinking about it. all saints... that's just silly.

but prodigy haven't toured here properly since, what, 97? even if they wanted to, I don't know if they could. they'd have to get sponsored by zune, a la chemical bros.

rage patton
02-29-2008, 04:28 PM
An Oasis/Prodigy would suck ass. Tickets would be much more expensive then just The Prodigy and it would likely be in an all seated venue.

good points. but given that I would go to both anyway, I'd save money if they toured together. but yeah, seated venue. that'd be awful.

It is not even in Tokyo, it is actually in Narita which is by the international airport...about a hour west of Tokyo by Train....no camping whatsoever....and the concerts take place in a convention area...not too expensive compared to alot of other festivals....

Hi, there!

I have been to summer sonic from 05. It is usually the line up is announced April or May, so I am surprised. Fuji rock announces the line up at almost same time. I heard that Fuji wanted rage last year, however, rage chose the US tour. Summer sonic wanted Bjork last year, however, she did not want to perform for 2 days, she asked for one day break between saturday and sunday.

I might be going to Sonic Summer. The line up looks way better than Fuji Rock this year.

The festival takes place in two locations. Tokyo & Osaka. Has anyone attended the festival in Osaka? I saw Daft Punk at a large indoor concert venue in Osaka and am curious if it is the same location?

Anyone have any recommendations on where to stay in Osaka for the festival? I would be taking the shinkansen (bullet train) from Hiroshima.

wtf? Fuji better then Summer Sonic? Fail!


EDIT I take that back. Maybe a tie?

but you can't beat MBV and Underworld as headliners...which why I am biased...

Anyone have any suggestions on how to buy tickets internationally?

When I was in Japan we had a terrible time figuring out how to buy concert tickets. Turns out every corner store sells them ;/


Can we buy the tickets and have them shipped to Chicago? How?

when i went to summer sonic two years ago, i just got a ticket off ebay from an english lady, go figure. but i know IN japan there's outlets where i got most of my tickets from. as far as internet, i could never translate kanji so i didn't know how to go about that...good luck. you'll have a blast.

Hi,

I decided to go to summer sonic today. 2 days tickets were sold out already, so I bought Saturday and Sunday ticket separately.

Any suggestions for who I should see or check out?

I'm going to Fuji Rock and Summer sonic next year.

If I can figure out how to buy tickets and take the train by then. I'll have like 9 months in Japan by then. Should be ok.
