The glimmering water of Toyko Bay and the twinkling of the city’s skyline will give festival goers a unique feeling for sure! The kinetic CATHEDRAL stage will feature at EDC Japan after making its debut at EDC Las Vegas in 2014 and then going on to capture fans at New York, Orlando, UK, Brazil, Mexico and India. Fans inside the Zozo Marine Baseball Stadium will be engulfed in the immersive experience of a re-imagined version of the stage, as the stadium comes to life with hundreds of lights, two towering towers and colourful flames.

Camp lovers will be happy to know that the neonGARDEN stage will be taking over the stunning venue of the Makuhari Plaza. If creative sets fascinate you, this festival will feature innovative sets over the oceanfront for shows near the colossal circuitGROUNDS structure.
