Hatsune Miku has been announced to perform in the DIVE XR FESTIVAL supported by SoftBank, a music festival where animations, games, comic characters, virtual singers, VTubers, and AI gather together.

In a parallel world where the Showa period of Japan continued, where science and technology advanced to a point beyond our imagination, the boundary between the two worlds collapses and ignites the beginning of a new era, to which the two Japan comes together and celebrates with a festival – a DIVE XR festival.

The festival will be held at Makuhari Messe international exhibition hall 1-3 on September 22nd~23rd. Ticket sales are available now on e plus at 9,680 yen (service charge included). Check out the full list of performers below!
