Besides the main attraction LUNA SEA, the line-up includes renowned artists such as:
- 9mm Parabellum Bullet

- Nothing’s Carved In Stone
- SILENT SIREN
- Takanori Nishikawa (T.M.Revolution)

- and many more!
In addition to the broadcast, a charity crowdfunding initiative will be set up using the service “READYFOR” to help prevent further spread of the coronavirus outbreak by providing assistance to healthcare and frontline workers. Donations will be accepted once the program begins.
The Novel Coronavirus pandemic has adversely affected many industries, such as art, music and entertainment. However, the reason that we are able to keep on in some sense of society is thanks to the healthcare and frontline workers risking their own health and continuing to do their best.
This time, a lot of our musician friends are lending us their help, and we’ll do what we are able to now. We can’t see the end of these dark times just yet, but we want to send energy during these uncertain times and we truly hope that this event will be able to support those of you fighting on the frontlines.
In case you missed out, LUNA SEA released a music video for their cheerful new song MAKE A VOW which was created to cheer up their fans struggling with the current situation. They are also currently creating a music video for it with the help of their fan club members, if you’re one of them, definitely make sure to take part!
