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!
