Japan is home to numerous music festivals, many of which rely on purchasing licenses from overseas. However, the MUSIC CIRCUS festival is a remarkable exception to this trend. Originating in Osaka, this prestigious beach music festival is a celebrated icon in the Kansai region and boasts the honor of being the country's first music festival of its kind.

Marking its 10th anniversary this year, MUSIC CIRCUS is pulling out all the stops by joining forces with the Songkran Festival for a fusion of tradition and modern entertainment. With a blend of Songkran 💧 x Music 🎵 x Fireworks 🎆 x Food 🍗, this festival transcends the ordinary by integrating these exciting elements into an unforgettable experience. Prepare to be drenched and delighted by immense water cannons. In this feature, we introduce some of the highlights of this event.
