The February 2020 issue of That's Beijing is out now – paper-and-ink form citywide, digital PDF form right here or in your browser here. Editor-in-Chief Valerie Osipov introduces the magazine:

With a new decade comes the promise of a better future. Well, early last month, the Beijing government announced a pretty big promise: the intent to make the city an “international music capital.” With a bold revenue goal of a whopping RMB120 billion by 2025, Beijing aims to build up its music industry, with a focus on more digital development, copyright laws and venues (and, of course, AI music technology). 

Fittingly, this month’s issue explores the current state of the music business in China. National Arts Editor Bryan Grogan takes a deep dive into the nation’s rapid consumption of digital music and its huge impact on the scene. As more money is pumped into the industry, listeners are getting their kicks out of music-streaming sites, mainstream talent show programs are all the rage and the music landscape is becoming even more competitive. So how will the live music industry – labels, promoters, artists, venues and all – fare in the long run?

Elsewhere in the magazine:

Until next month,

Valerie Osipov
