Online concerts and festivals to stream in 2021 - QuaranPalooza, TOMIKE, GrayBeat, and more

The live music industry was one of the first sectors hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and quite possibly the last industry to recover from its effects.


An ever-adapting community, artists and concert producers alike have shifted their craft online. 2020 saw the rise of virtual shows from the likes of Dua Lipa, BTS, Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish, NCT, Joji, and NIKI. Concerts and festivals were hosted within video games like Fortnite and Minecraft, while massive shows enhanced by the use of AR (augmented reality) and XR (extended reality) garnered millions of views from across the world.

Breaking into the new normal: 20 virtual concerts in 2020

While the world slowly reopens (or gets into another lockdown, depends on which part of the world you're from), expect more virtual concerts and festivals to come your way. From Music Lane Okinawa 2021 to BLACKPINK's first online concert, here are the virtual shows you can check out in 2021:
