Vtuber agency Nijisanji has announced a huge festival set to take place at the end of this month. From September 30th until October 2nd, Nijisanji will take over the Makuhari Messe, in Chiba, Japan, for NIJISANJI Fes 2022.
The largest event the Vtuber company has ever held, NIJISANJI Fes will feature live performances, as well as streamed international via Stagecrowd, in a partnership between Sony Music Solutions Inc. and ANYCOLOR Inc.

Not just for the Stagecrowd at Nijisanji Fes 2022
But even if you’re not up for the main stage performances, Nijisanji is hosting dozens of programs on its main channel. These will feature some of the main stage performers, as well as other Nijisanji talents.
Overall, Nijisanji Fes 2022 is set to be one of the largest Vtubing events we’ve ever seen. Vtubers made a splash this year at the Anime Expo in July, with US-based Vtubing companies such as Phase Connect, Tsunderia, and VShojo attending live. This featured virtual meet and greets and panels from the talents.
Live events are clearly the next big step in Vtubing. Taking an audience which traditional only interacted online, and converting it to convention and festival goes is a great move. And the outpouring of support we see from donations and super chat suggests that the audience is ready and willing to pay.
