Fuji Rock recently announced its head-turning line-up and now Japan’s other big music festival is doing the same. Summer Sonic is usually viewed as a poppier alternative to Fuji Rock’s more harder hitting lineup. Then there’s Sonic Mania, which is proving to be something that will have many different music lovers interested.
With acts like Nine Inch Nails, My Bloody Valentine, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, and George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic on board, Sonic Mania 2018 is shaping up to be something special.
Tickets are already on sale here with regular tickets to the event starting at ¥12,000. If you really want to get the most out of the event, you could spring for the Platinum ticket at ¥20,000. A Platinum ticket gets you an exclusive viewing area, access to the platinum lounge, exclusive merch lines, and a welcome drink.
Summer Sonic and Sonic Mania are two separate events with two different lineups. Be sure to keep that in mind when ordering your tickets.
Sonic Mania will be held at Makuhari Messe on Friday, August 17. The venue opens at 8:00am and shows begin at 10:00. Keep an eye on the official site for schedule and line up changes.
