Overview

Dacapo VTuber Concert refers to Thai VTuber Dacapo's performance at the 2023 Bangkok Cosplay Art Festival in late June and early July 2023. A video of Dacapo's VTuber persona delivering a rendition of Fuji Kaze's song Shinunoga E-Wa was widely shared on TikTok and Twitter in early July, with people commenting on the simple animation style despite the "VTuber Concert" supposedly costing $300. Various TikTokers made videos and memes mimicking and mocking Dacapo's animation, while others defended concert-goers by clarifying that Dacapo's performance was free, while the event hosting cost 300 Baht (approximately $9).

Background

Dacapo is the most-subscribed member of the Thai Virtual Talent Agency "Algorhythm Project."[1] Between June 30th and July 2nd, 2023, the Thailand Cultural Arts Center hosted the 2023 Cosplay Art Festival,[2] which featured several VTuber performances. This included a pre-recorded performance by VTuber Dacapo, which was uploaded to YouTube[3] on July 4th, gathering over 340,000 views in a week (seen below).



On July 5th, TikToker @tuesday.18 posted the earliest known clip of the video being played at the Festival.[4] While the original upload has since been deleted, it was reuploaded by TikToker[5] @neneluvsjisung on July 9th, 2023. The footage shows attendees at the concert cheering during Dacapo's performance, and clapping when he lifts his hair to show his eyes.
