Chinese music festival goes online due to coronavirus

'Stay at Home Strawberry' festival is being streamed on Bilibili

Research company Analysys estimated that China's live entertainment industry drew revenue of 56 billion yuan in 2019.

BEIJING -- With live performances canceled or postponed in China due to the coronavirus outbreak and millions of Chinese forced to stay home, one local indie label and music festival organizer is holding a free online streaming concert on video platform Bilibili.

The organizer, Modern Sky, dubbed the unusual streaming festival "Stay at Home Strawberry," which showcases replays of live performances from previous editions of the company's annual Strawberry Music Festival. In addition, some artists are also sharing videos of daily life in quarantine on the platform.
