The manager of VOCAMERICA, EmpathP, has said that the two VOCAMERICA concerts held at Japan Weekend will be slightly different, so each performance will be unique.

Stage 2 Details

For 2018, EmpathP has stated that VOCAMERICA will be entering ‘Stage 2’ of production, which means that the concert will be getting various upgrades to improve the experience for concert goers. These upgrades include a higher frame rate, concert shaders and lighting, maps and sound mixing updates.
