The free event will include a chance to help make a collaborative music video and will feature small art exhibitions. The event's official website has the list of locations.

The Hatsune Miku Expo world tour began in May 2014 in Indonesia and has since stopped in Los Angeles, New York City, Shanghai, and five Japanese cities.
