Hatsune Miku Returns to Coachella 2024

The well-known virtual idol and other well-known Japanese musicians are returning to the well-liked California music festival.

Hatsune Miku, Japan's most famous virtual diva, will perform at the three-day Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Delays in 2020 prevented this promise from being completed for four years. Vocaloid's attendance at a major music festival shows her global appeal.

Pop Base's X account and Crunchyroll said the digital talent will perform on two April Saturdays. Coachella runs April 12-14 and 19-21 in 2024.

Unlike other Japanese artists, Miku is a virtual construct who is treated as a real performance.

Miku was almost brought to Coachella years ago. She was scheduled to perform at the 2020 festival. The event was canceled along with several other yearly festivals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Coachella reopened in 2022, but the pop star returned today. YOASOBI on Friday and Atarashi Gakko! on Sunday are other notable Japanese performers at Coachella.

Yamaha Voicaloid voicebank to Coachella premiere for Miku. After years of helping amateur musicians, she and they developed a discography. 

 The star will perform with holograms in California. Coachella attendees may not realize Japan has holograms and virtual singers.

Although Hatsune Miku cannot sing, her voice spawned hundreds of songs and a lively anime-adjacent music creation subculture. 

 Vocaloid inspired Supercell's Bakemonogatari end credit and Takt Op. Destiny opener. Coachella in April will honor Hatsune Miku and her huge fanbase.
