The company behind Hatsune Miku, Crypton Future Media, has been increasing its efforts to bring live music to fans around the world during the ongoing pandemic. One of the efforts that have continued to this day is the free global livestream offerings which include events like HATSUNE MIKU Digital Stars 2022.
“Digital Stars” will be held again in 2022, bringing together various new sounds from across genres and borders!
The concert puts the spotlight on DJs and musicians—Vocaloid music producers—and will be streamed over at Twitch on May 28, from 14:00-20:00 (JST), for anyone to watch! Fans in Japan can attend the event in person at the venue Akihabara MOGRA in Tokyo, however, as of writing, it’s completely sold out. For this reason, the official Digital Stars Twitter account encourages fans who cannot attend in person to join the free livestream on Twitch instead.
Notably, we see the fan-favorite metal Vocaloid producer Utsu-P participating in the event again—among many other reputable musicians. He is also responsible for this year’s Digital Stars theme song called “Hello Builder“.
The Digital Stars album
You will find this year’s Digital Stars theme song on the compilation album appropriately titled HATSUNE MIKU Digital Stars 2022 Compilation. And you can get a hold of it on May 25—three days before the event—so you’ll have enough time to hype yourself with the excellent music that Crypton Future Media describes as “newest sounds from across genres and borders”.
A preview for the album is available to listen to via Hatsune Miku’s YouTube channel.
