SUMMER SONIC 2018 is coming in hot this year, and their 9th wave lineup announcement might have just added a little sizzle to that factor. Storming onto the RAINBOW STAGE on August 19, you’ll be able to catch the likes of the newly-reformed m-flo, Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas, and SPYAIR on top of the previously announced lineup. Joining the MARINE STAGE you’ll find the incredible back number has been added to the lineup. Additionally, heading over to the MIDNIGHT SONIC stage, you’ll find The Fin., Ryohu(KANDYTOWN), and MIYACHI have all joined the roster.
