Today, the official Hatsune Miku Twitter account announced the beginning of the Hatsune Miku Expo 2021 Online crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter!

The Kickstarter campaign, managed by Crypton Future Media, aims to bring Miku Expo 2021 to a worldwide audience via online streaming in light of the current world situation.  In order to succeed, the campaign must meet or exceed its initial goal of 25 million yen (roughly 237,748 USD) within 60 days.  As of writing, the campaign has already raised over 9 million yen from more than 200 backers.  The deadline for the initial crowdfunding goal is Sunday, January 10, 2021, at 8:48 PM EST.

When the initial goal is met, Miku Expo 2021 Online will have a 10-song setlist.  Beyond that, there are 3 stretch goals that will enhance the experience.  In the best-case scenario, Miku Expo 2021 Online will feature a setlist of 14 songs, along with the Song Contest winner!

If you love Miku and are financially able to do so, consider contributing to the crowdfunding campaign to help bring Miku to the world in these challenging times.  There are several contribution tiers to choose from, all with different perks and merchandise to be delivered if the campaign is successful.  Details for each tier can be found on the campaign’s Kickstarter page.

The two nights of the Hatsune Miku Galaxy Live 2020 VR event have concluded, and it was a spectacular event to watch! The visuals and music selection were great, and we’re incredibly grateful that such an event was made available for free. It was a 45 minute long performance spanning various planets across the virtual galaxy. The live featured 8 songs, which felt just right for a VR Live event (you need to let your eyes rest!).

If you’d like to recap the playlist, here’s the songs featured in the event:

1: Mizuiro Shinryaku by Nayutalien
2: World is Mine by Ryo(Supercell)
3: Violence Trigger by HachiojiP
4: MACARON by ATOLS
5: Bitter Chocolate Decoration by syudou
6: HIBANA by DECO*27
7: Sekai no Man’naka wo Aruku by Natsushiro Takaaki
8: Tell Your World by kz

The end of the live event also teased two somewhat mysterious announcements:

– Miku World 2021
– Miku Galaxy Live Japan 2021… And then the world!

Let’s have some fun speculating what these events could be! Is Miku World 2021 going to be some kind of theme park collaboration? Is Miku Galaxy Live going to be the name of some new concert event, or will it finally replace the outdated “Miku Expo” naming scheme? We’re excited to see what these announcements will bring for the future!
