Sunset Live 2015

START: Sep 4, 2015 END: Sep 6, 2015

Kyushu’s biggest outdoor music festival.
60+ live bands. Three days. One beach.



9/4 (Fri.), 9/5 (Sat.) and 9/6 (Sun.) – The Summer’s Grand Finale!
Sunset Live is Kyushu’s most popular outdoor music festival, returning this year for its 23rd iteration. Enjoyed by over 15,000 people, Sunset Live started as a party in the parking lot of Sunset Cafe. Now, bands covering a wide range of genres (including some of Japan’s most popular acts) perform across three stages and are watched by legions of adoring fans.

The festival is held on a natural, crescent-shaped beach in Keya, Itoshima, just one hour from Tenjin. As if that wasn’t enough, the festival is bordered on one side by lush green mountains, and the beach leads straight into the beautifully warm waters of the Genkai-nada Sea. All along the beach, colourful booths sell refreshments and food prepared by some of Fukuoka’s hippest restaurants and bars!



Want to chill? Take a walk on the beach, cool off in the sea, or catch some shade inside the umi-no-ie beach huts. Other entertainment will keep all your senses buzzed!
