Summer Sonic 2014
Until Sun Aug 17, 2014 Makuhari Messe
Held in the concrete expanses of Chiba's QVC Marine Field and Makuhari Messe, a half-hour train ride from Tokyo Station, Summer Sonic makes up in convenience for what it lacks in atmosphere.
This year's festival is headlined by what's left of the legendary Queen, backed up by 'American Idol' Adam Lambert, and alt-rock heroes Arctic Monkeys.
As with previous years, the weekend's festival is preceded by an all-night dance party, Sonicmania, on the Friday.
