Comment from Naoki Shimizu, CEO of Creativeman

Finally, the schedule split between Tokyo and Osaka is out and preparations for the summer will begin.
The headliners are MÅNESKIN and BRING ME THE HORIZON, two new icons of the next generation of rock and a band that has a great affinity for Japan. The former is the first Italian rock star in SUMMER SONIC’s history, following his performance in Japan last December, which sold out nearly 40,000 people on the same day and caused a sensation across Japan.The latter will return to SUMMER SONIC as arguably the most prominent rock band of the year, receiving the title of Best Rock Band at the recent Brit Awards and dropping a new album soon. Before that, there was a fresh lineup of world-class faces, including AURORA, GRETA VAN FLEET, LIL YACHTY, ONEREPUBLIC, and PINKPANTHERESS. There, Tokyo-only MAJOR LAZER and Gen Hoshino and Osaka-only UNDERWORLD and Vaundy should be involved in important stages. And now that we are able to announce the artists we can only hope to see, mainly from Japan and Asia, we can’t wait to see what stage they will appear on.
Since we are about halfway through the presentation at this stage, we will pick up the pace from here, and additional acts will be brought out from around the world.

Starting this year, ZOZO Marine Stadium will allow visitors to bring sports drinks into the arena, in addition to water and tea. Water stations will be located outside both venues, so please drink plenty of water. In Tokyo, use the indoor environment of Makuhari Messe to cool down, or take a break in the shade of the lush trees and lawns of Expo ’70 Commemorative Park, the new Osaka venue. Although you should be willing to push yourself to see your favorite artists perform live, please consider where you will attend while consulting with your own physical condition. The festival staff will be watching your movements and waiting for you to call on us at any time.

Nearly 10% of the audience now comes from outside Japan to enjoy the summer, and this year SUMMER SONIC BANGKOK will finally begin. Will Japanese festivals expand to other Asian countries in the future and introduce more Japanese artists to the world? All I can say is that nothing happens unless you try. And SONICMANIA presentation will start next week. Please stay tuned.
