Hypnosis Mic 2nd DRB

The format for Hypnosis Mic‘s upcoming Division Rap Battle- 6th LIVE changes in light of state of emergency issued in Tokyo and 2 neighboring prefectures.

Hypnosis mic –Division Rap Battle- 6th LIVE is included in the 2nd Division Rap Battle series and was originally visit 3 locations: Tokyo, Osaka, and Aichi.

Unfortunately, due to the current fast dissemination of Coronavirus in Japan and the recent issue of state of emergency in the Tokyo and 3 neighboring prefectures, events and live shows for the first quarter of 2021 being held in those locations are being cancelled, postponed or changing format.

Hypnosis mic –Division Rap Battle- 6th LIVE will, however, change its format.

Instead of visiting Osaka, Aichi and Tokyo, all 3 scheduled live shows will be held without an audience and livestreamed (most likely – although not confirmed – through their partner channel, AbemaTV).

Live viewing and physical tickets sales were cancelled and those that acquired tickets will be contacted on a later date.

At the moment there are no details on which will be the livestream platform for the 3 rap battles in the Hypnosis mic –Division Rap Battle- 6th LIVE, nor the ticket prices or if it will be available for overseas fans to watch.
