Last but certainly not least, HYDE rounds out the bill.

Japan's most prolific rock artist is the lead vocalist for two of the most popular Japanese rock bands L'Arc~en~Ciel and VAMPS. Throughout his career so far, HYDE has recorded more than 300 songs, with 60+ songs breaking the Oricon (Japanese Billboard Chart) top 10.

Still active with L'Arc~en~Ciel, HYDE took a break from VAMPS in early 2018, to reinvent himself yet again as a solo artist, releasing 5 new singles back-to-back: “WHO’S GONNA SAVE US”, “AFTER LIGHT”, “FAKE DIVINE”, "ZIPANG", and "MAD QUALIA". HYDE shows no signs of slowing down with his album “anti” scheduled to be released on June 19, 2019.
