With a mega-list of headliners Summer Sonic have nailed it this year: The Strokes, Beady Eye, Ting Tings, Avril Lavigne, Korn, Mars Volta, Arrested development play on Saturday 13th. Red Hot Chili Peppers, X Japan, Panic! at the Disco, Metronomy, and er, the Village People play on Sunday 14th. The great news; you can go on both days! Now Chiba may not be the hippest part of Japan, but when 100,000 music mad festival goers hit the Marine stadium you can guarantee a good time. Tickets have sold out for Tokyo, but you can still buy tickets for the Osaka show.
