Mobile video platform TikTok announced today (21 May) that it is launching two live stream vertical-format K-pop concerts entitled TikTok Stage Live From Seoul, and TikTok Stage with HipHopPlaya.
The two concerts which are slated for 25 May, 4pm SGT and 27 May, 7pm, will go live on the TikTok Stage in-app channel.
Day 1’s concert will feature live performances by Monsta X, Ikon, Kang Daniel, AKMU, Apink, CIX, Cravity, Kard and Oh My Girl; while Day 2 will feature Jay Park, Zico, Epik High, Crush, Dean, All Ready, Ash Island, Bobby Changmo, E Sens, Giriboy, Heize, Jessi, Kid Milli, Miso, PH-1, Sik-K, Superbee, Tabber, TWLV, Uneducated Kid and Yuzion.
The star-studded concert series is open to viewers around the world.
For every live viewer who tunes in, TikTok will donate US$0.50, and all funds raised will go towards supporting charity efforts for those most affected by COVID-19.
In the spirit of spreading positivity through good tunes and great entertainment, local viewers and fans will also get to interact with the performers live and be asked to participate in fundraising via fun TikTok in-app challenges.
“We're grateful for all the artists and entertainers who use TikTok to connect with their fans and can’t wait until we can see them live on stage again. Till then, we’re committed to connecting our community and fans with these massively talented acts from home - all while doing our part to aid COVID-19 relief efforts,” said Doreen Tan, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Singapore.
