In September, the DIVE XR FESTIVAL Supported by Softbank virtual singer event will be held. And where there are virtual singers, there are VOCALOIDs.
Hatsune Miku’s performance at the show should come as no surprise, but what is rather surprising is that Luo Tianyi will be performing as well. In fact, this event will mark the Vsinger’s first ever performance in Japan! Both her Weibo and Twitter accounts confirmed it.
Tianyi’s Weibo announcement even confirmed that she will be debuting a brand new Japanese language song at the event. Needless to say, this occasion will mark numerous “firsts” for her!
However, what’s worth noting is that this will actually not be the first time that the most popular Japanese and Chinese VOCALOIDs will be sharing the same stage. Miku and Tianyi were both confirmed to be performers at the upcoming Bilibili Macro Link VR concert on July 19, along with the rest of their respective VOCALOID families. Nonetheless, to see the pair at two of the same official concerts in such a short span of time is something that would have been unthinkable in the past. It’s truly remarkable to see how much the VOCALOID and virtual singer worlds can change on any given year.
Both Miku and Tianyi will be performing on both days of the event. Tickets will go on sale soon, so those hoping to see both perform will soon have the chance to! You can also visit the official event site to see the rest of the performers.
