    Default Summer Sonic - Tokyo/Osaka

    Don't think there's a thread for this yet. It's the only date the Chemical Brothers have announced outside Europe to my knowledge. I also can't seem to find an English version of the site:

    Ah okay cool deal. Friday night is a lock for me, just want to check and see which date the Chems is playing so if it's on a Saturday that's perfect so I don't have to go Sunday.

    New additions:

    Cody Simpson
    Darlia
    Pretty Vicious
    Wolf Alice
    Nothing But Thieves

    Prodigy got added to Summer Sonic proper in Osaka as well, so depending on how the schedule works out, maybe you want to consider attending the Osaka edition of the event, Electrotek? It's a hair cheaper than Tokyo, I think.

    I'll look into that as well. I already got a hotel booked at Maple Inn about 5km's from where the festival is being held. Only thing I'm afraid of the Osaka one is The Prodigy clashing with The Chemical Brothers

    Blue Stapler, do you know how I am able to purchase tickets? I'm having a hard time figuring that one out.

    I'm probably not the right guy to ask, since I'm in a position where I can just stroll out to the local convenience store and buy my tickets there when they go on general sale. I have no idea how someone who isn't a resident of Japan would go about buying tickets for this festival, and I couldn't find any info on their website.

    Didn't you say that you know a person who lives here? That might be your best bet. Tickets go on general sale on May 30 btw, so anyone who wants to buy it now would need to get them online through the advance sale (and for whatever it's worth, if you buy a two-day pass on advance sale, it looks like they'll throw in a free T-shirt). But I'm assuming you'll need a Japanese address for that as well.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    Yeah I do have a friend that I'm staying with at Sagamihara for most of my trip, and I'll ask her. Other than that though, the less work she can do the better it is for me haha

    I would get the two day pass, but it all depends on the acts for each day. If The Chems end up playing on a Saturday at Chiba, then I'll skip Sunday.

    This entire festival confuses me. The complete and utter lack of an English website does not help.

    No kidding. I'm guessing the English website will be up probably when the General Onsale occurs in May.

    I sure would like to. It's a direct flight. I'm just so confused by the festival setup, lack of information in English, and I'm also trying to swing a trip to Seoul in September so I don't know if it's in the cards this year...

    I'm usually the last person to defend Summer Sonic because, well, a lot of it is indefensible, but I think 2009 actually had a pretty good lineup if you ignore those headliners (and Limp Bizkit...and Hoobastank...and...a lot of other bands). I remember Friday (Tokyo) being stacked in particular, which pissed me off immensely because there was no way that I'd be able to take a day off to attend the festival that day after taking three days off for Fuji Rock two weeks prior.

    The lineup usually being full of crap is my biggest complaint against Summer Sonic (not that Fuji Rock has a stellar lineup either this year - it has its share of crap acts), but that's followed closely behind by the lack of a good festival atmosphere. Which, fair enough, isn't what they're setting out to do.
