A fantastic new installment of “YouTube Music Weekend 7.0” is commencing today, August 25, and will run through until August 27. The online event brings various videos, including live performances, talks, and new music videos prepared by each artist.

What’s special about this installment is that the theme surrounds “digital native artists” (デジタルネイティブアーティスト), which essentially refers to artists who have emerged from Japan’s internet culture using digital mediums. It focuses especially on those who have gained international popularity.

There are a total of 57 artists lined up over three days, headlined by ZUTOMAYO, Eve, Pinocchio-P, Yorushika (n-buna), Suisei, and YOASOBI.

For me, subjectively, this is without a doubt the best lineup we’ve had so far! Because of it, it’s quite a challenge to pick my personal highlights. However, a few artists I’d recommend exploring are the following (excluding headliners): Reol, Tsukiyomi, isekaijoucho, DUSTCELL, Kanzaki Iori, ASU, MAISONdes, and Chogakusei.

YouTube have conveniently put together a full playlist for each of the video, but don’t forget to subscribe to your favorite artists’ channels and set reminders for premieres.
