Hatsune Miku to Perform at Coachella 2024

Coachella just put out a long list of this year’s performers, and one of them is none other than twin-tailed Vocaloid Hatsune Miku!

Hatsune Miku was tapped to take part in the 2020 Coachella event, but that all got thrown off because of the pandemic. So Miku got to work fighting COVID instead as an official Coronavirus Countermeasure Supporter for the Japanese government’s Office for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control.

This time around, she’s scheduled to perform on April 13 and 20, both of which are Saturdays. Others scheduled for the same day include Blur, Bleachers, and John Batiste.

She’s also not the only performer from Japan. YOASOBI, the duo behind Oshi no Ko’s opening hit “Idol,” will be at the event on April 12 and 19 (both Fridays), while girl group Atarashii Gakko!, which performed the theme song for SNS Police, can be found at the event on April 14 and 21 (both Sundays).

Coachella is advertising that its tickets go on sale this Friday, January 19.

If you’re unable to attend Coachella, there is the option of watching its livestream. Also, you might still be able to see Miku perform in person elsewhere, thanks to Crunchyroll’s MIKU TOUR 2024. During that time, Miku will be performing throughout America (including in Portland, San Jose, Denver, Dallas, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, and Orlando), and will also perform twice in Canada and once in Mexico.

This is all a continuation of Miku’s impressive career, which includes music, video games, and plenty of merchandise, with Miku getting involved with everything from My Little Pony to getting a custom Hatsune Miku PC to having her own vacation VR event. Hatsune Miku is arguably more famous than some of the other performers at Coachella, and it will be interesting to see what sort of a crowd she gets and if she’ll be invited back.
