Perfume adds two other lives to their already long list for this year: SUMMER SONIC in Osaka, and SONICMANIA. Continuing from last year’s SUMMER SONIC, they will once again be appearing in OCEAN STAGE on August 11. They will also be appearing on SUMMER SONIC’s eve party, SONICMANIA.


SUMMER SONIC is an annual urban-rock festival featuring mostly Japanese and international rock bands and is usually held in Osaka and Chiba. It will be Perfume’s third appearance counting this August’s (2008, 2012, 2013) and will be appearing the same day as Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, MAXIMUM THE HORMONE, and many more. This year’s SUMMER SONIC spans two days – August 10 and 11. The OCEAN STAGE will be held in a specially designated SUMMER SONIC venue in Maishima. Aside from MAXIMUM THE HORMONE, Japanese bands such as ONE OK ROCK, SCANDAL, and Sakanaction will be appearing in the different stages too.


SONICMANIA is the party event on August 9, the eve of SUMMER SONIC. Unlike SUMMER SONIC’s FES type of stage, SONICMANIA is held indoors, like a big club. It will be Perfume’s first appearance in SONICMANIA and being their first, people are highly anticipating the kind of performance the electro-pop trio will put on for this event. SONICMANIA will be held in Makuhari Messe, Chiba.
