Concerts Shift to Online in China

All By Yourself

Live music venues across China have been closed down since January as a result of the outbreak – so clubs and musicians are responding by launching live-streamed performances on online platforms. 

One example is All By Yourself, created by Shanghai club All, which is offering DJ sets streamed from software development platform Github.

China has a well-developed live-streaming culture driven by platforms such as Bilibili and Weixin. Locked-down musicians are now using these apps to stream home concerts, such as this 12-hour "home party" from Shanghai Community Radio. See our Engaging Affluent Asia report for more on the influence of live streaming in China.
