MIYAVI VIRTUAL LIVE 360 "Three-Sixty," connecting both Virtual and Real worlds

MIYAVI, who has attracted worldwide attention as a guitarist with his unique "slap technique," playing the electric guitar entirely with his fingers without using a pick, has so far performed over 350 shows in about 30 countries and successfully completed eight world tours. He now takes on the challenge of a completely new performance with his concept being: "Connecting both the virtual and the real world."

A Message from MIYAVI

Since the spread of the Coronavirus, our customary economic activities and the way we connect with each other is gradually changing, and as an artist, I've been exploring new ways of expression in the virtual world through things like drone-operated unmanned photography and collaborating with TeamLab's light art.

And now, I'll finally be taking on performing inside a VR world. How can we deliver something real in a virtual world? I strongly believe that one of the answers lies here.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all and creating a new landscape at Virtual Market 5, where VR pioneers from around the world gather.

Creator’s Comment

Supervising Director Sawaemika

I'm very thrilled to be involved in this joint project with MIYAVI!
Producing events and experiences inside virtual spaces is what we do.
We think of these virtual spaces as an "uncharted alternate reality," and new discoveries and innovations are made every day.

I had an opportunity to chat one day, and it turned into a very lively discussion where we both said: "Wouldn't it be interesting to try something like this in the virtual space?" And that's what sparked the realization of this project.
From the cool MIYAVI-themed world to the on-stage effects hyping up the music, our team had a blast producing this event.


We've expanded our technical possibilities through things like Oculus Quest support because we wanted as many people as possible to experience it.

I hope you enjoy this new style of live event experience where both virtual and real worlds cross paths!

HIKKY Co., Ltd. President Funakoshi Yasushi

In the virtual world, there are many creators who create never-seen expressions and works. "Virtual Market," which is the culmination of their efforts and strengths, has become a global convention that's covered by media in not just Japan, but other countries too. 

MIYAVI has felt the synergy of the VR world and approached us by himself. At first, I wondered if there was anything we could do to help an artist who was already an international phenomenon, but I was more than happy when he told me, "There are amazing people here (in VR) and I wish to learn from those seniors (VR creators) and take on new challenges." And that's how we ended up working on this project together from the planning.

Please enjoy MIYAVI VIRTUAL LIVE 360 “Three-Sixty” along with Virtual Market!
