    millennium parade profile:

    An up-and-coming creative group led by Tokyo producer/songwriter Daiki Tsuneda. Consisting primarily of millennial-generation digital natives, it includes musicians, video directors, CG creators, designers, illustrators, and other professionals. The group is based on the concept of “Hyakki Yagyo,” a term from Japanese folklore that refers to a horde of supernatural creatures marching forward in a procession. Under the theme “Tokyo as seen by the world,” they seek to give the world a fun yet realistic look at the chaotic capital city.

    Tickets to their first concert, which was held as a launch party in May 2019 and featured extensive use of 3D visuals, were sold out almost immediately. Competition to acquire tickets for their subsequent tour of Tokyo and Osaka was fierce. After collaborating with global brands such as Adidas and DIOR and singing the theme song of Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, they released their debut album in February 2021. They also participated in Kōhaku Uta Gassen with the theme song of Belle, a sci-fi anime directed by Mamoru Hosoda, and gave an overwhelming performance. They have attracted a great deal of attention as an advocate of new values.
