Details for the upcoming Hatsune Miku Expo 2017 Malaysia has been revealed during the press conference held at TGV Cinemas, One Utama yesterday. The news of Hatsune Miku Expo coming to Malaysia was broke out on her birthday (31 August) and now we finally have all the information regarding the Expo itself.
Crypton Future Media x Astro
Now, some of you may be asking why Crypton Future Media would decide to choose Malaysia as the stage for Miku Expo 2017. That’s pretty obvious when there is a huge organisation pulling the strings behind the scene and make it all happen. MEASAT Broadcast Network Systems Sdn Bhd or better known as Astro is the company that works together with Crypton Future Media to bring the Vocaloid concert to the local scene.
It is also revealed that the concert’s opening act will be performed by Zizan Razak, one of Malaysia’s top actor and Chaleeda Gilbert, Thailand’s popular YouTube creator.
16 December 2017 at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil
The expo will be taking place at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil on 16th December 2017. Even though some pointed out that the stadium is capable of sitting 16,000 fans, but Kimitaka Nishio, CEO of Crypton Future Media, stresses that only 6,500 seats will be open for the concert goers in order to provide the best viewing angle and consistent experience for all. As someone who attended the Miku Party 2011 in Singapore, I couldn’t agree more on his statement.
Apart from the concert, there are multiple side activities that tag along with the expo:
- Pre-event T-Shirt design competition where the winner’s design will be the official T-shirt of the concert (details coming soon)
- Kinect & Crypton games experience
- Mini-concert brought to you by Japanese DJs
- Cosplay event
- Exclusive sales of Hatsune Miku merchandise
Most of the aforementioned activities are still in planning stage, therefore, do stay tuned for more future updates.
