The arrival of the novel coronavirus has caused the shutdown of cultural venues all over the country. The music industry has responded with characteristic energy, taking live shows from physical venues to the internet with livestreams taking over on sites like Bilibili and Douyin over the past few weeks. 

While the likes of Taxx in Shanghai and One Third in Beijing and Hangzhou have reported huge numbers of viewers and monetary tips on their livestreams, local venues, promoters, labels and musicians like ALL, Shanghai Community Radio, Ruby Eye Records and more have been putting together consistent streams. 

Here we highlight a few you should tune into this weekend:
