What is HATSUNE MIKU EXPO?
"HATSUNE MIKU EXPO" is the world tour series of virtual singer "Hatsune Miku", that celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2019. A total of 68 concerts have been held in 30 cities around the world so far. In total, more than 190,000 people have attended the concerts, which include songs and MCs in the language of the host city, as well as sub-events such as exhibitions and workshops. The concerts are planned in a versatile manner, adapting to the size of the venues and the fan base in each location around the world. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the first ever online MIKU EXPO was streamed to fans worldwide, and in June 2022 "HATSUNE MIKU EXPO Rewind" which featured selected performances from past MIKU EXPO was streamed free of charge.

For the new augmented edition “HATSUNE MIKU EXPO Rewind+” which will be held on November 6th JST, we will be adding special event related local footages so you can see more of the world tour, in addition to the performance footage on stage.
