Happy Miku Day (March 9th) to all Hatsune Miku fans! It’s time for the yearly Hatsune Miku appreciation day, where fans celebrate their love for Hatsune Miku in various ways! Some create music, others draw artworks, create photography or even share cosplay dances.

Of course, there’s too much to fit here! So our yearly tradition to celebrate is to share some of our favorite illustrations from Pixiv and Twitter. Although we definitely encourage you to check out more yourself by searching the tag ミクの日 to find more!

Summers in Japan can be quite dangerous for unfamiliar tourists! Extreme heat and humidity can cause heatstroke if you’re not careful, so it’s important to try to keep cool and hydrated. With the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Hatsune Miku and V-tubers such as Mirai Akari, YuNi and more will be partnering as Pocari Sweat** ambassadors to raise awareness of this potential issue.

** Pocari Sweat is a popular hydration beverage in Japan, packing sodium and and other essential electrolytes lost in sweat.

The first stage of this collaboration is a new music video titled “Nechusho No!No! feat. Hatsune Miku & MEIKO”, composed by Mitchie M! In the video, Hatsune Miku and MEIKO sing in news-reporting style about the importance of staying safe in Japan’s summer heat, and also interview popular V-tubers/singers Mirai Akari, Fuji Aoi, and YuNi. They’re even joined by Hoshino Ichika from the upcoming mobile game, “Project Sekai Colorful Stage“!

This was definitely a cute and creative way to raise awareness of “Nechusho(heatsroke)”, and we hope overseas visitors will stay safe this summer!

This one’s a quick one, but big: Hatsune Miku is a confirmed music guest at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California in 2020! Simply known as “Coachella”, the event is known as the largest music festival in the world, held across two weekends at the Indio polo grounds in Southern California.

Hatsune Miku is scheduled to make appearances on both Fridays on April 10th and the 17th. Tickets for the weekend of 17th~19th are still available for reservation on the Coachella Music Festival official site.

As a side note, I live only 10 miles/16km away from the event, and will be attending to also give away free goodies to fellow Miku fans. More details to come later!
