Though you might be dreading July, with its sweltering heat and seasonal rain, the month makes up for it with a slew of exciting concerts. It’s time to let loose — and pray the venues have air conditioning. Here’s a selection of what July has in store.

The sands of Zushi Beach will play host to a series of concerts organized by Otodama. Otodama Sea Studio will put on shows every day in July (and August), keeping up with a tradition of bringing some of the biggest names in Japan to the coast. Highlights include Daishi Dance on July 7 for its second annual beach party, and indie-pop darlings Moumoon on July 15 for a chiller set (ticket prices and start times vary; 046-870-6040).
