YouTube Music Weekend strikes back with its third volume coming to play. The digital streaming event will take place on YouTube between July 16-18, where each artist premieres its video on its respective channel.

Similar to the previous installment, the list is massive! YouTube Japan managed to gather 54 artists and groups to join the digital event—which is even more than previously. In case you’re feeling overwhelmed by the massive lineup (full list below), I’d personally recommend: Aimer, Chiai Fujikawa, GLAY, Motohiro Hata, Vaundy, and YuNi!

Wonderfully and notably, the event also includes a section for virtual artists “VTubers”. Some veteran virtual idols like AZKi, Kaede Higuchi, Tokino Sora are listed, and also rising stars such as the grim reaper and rapper, Mori Calliope—strongly recommended.

The cheerful pianist harami will be participating as a support artist and open each main event with a 10-minute performance.


In addition to the regular schedule, starting July 7, YouTube invites fans to join the metaphorical “backstage” through any device with Google Assistant access—an app whose main interaction is done through voice commands.

In there, you will be able to ask questions to the 20 artists who have decided to join this part of the event. The command will however only work within Japan, so if you meet the requirement, hop in by saying “OK Google, backstage toku ni tsunaide” (OK Google, バックステージトークにつないで).
