For the last eight years, Yatsui Festival served as an annual mix of idols, bands, comedians and DJs that performed over the course of two days in live houses across Shibuya. After the 2020 Yatsui Fes was cancelled due to stupid coronavirus, the festival has morphed into a FREE online event to be delivered across multiple platforms this Saturday and Sunday (JST).
Homicidols’ favorites contributing livestreamed performances include:
- You’ll Melt More
- sora tob sakana
- .meme tokyo
- lyrical school
- Chiaki Mayumura
- Maneki Kecak
Guilty favorites Negicco and Up Up Girls will also be performing along with several other indie tradols and some amazing bands like Gacharic Spin.
We have tried to capture the highlighted performers on the Homicidols Event Calendar, but check the Online Yatsui Festival website for the most current timetable and lineup. More artists were being added as recently as yesterday. Also check the artists’ Twitter accounts for direct links to their livestreams via YouTube, Nico Nico or Line Live.
The online festival is also hoping to generate additional support for a crowdfunding effort to cover the debt incurred from cancellations costs and to support the live houses and artists who were also impacted by the cancellation.
