As part of its coordinated COVID-19 relief efforts around the world, TikTok, the leading destination for short-form mobile video, is launching for the first time, two live vertical-format K-POP concerts – “TikTok Stage Live From Seoul” on 25 May, 4PM PHT, and “TikTok Stage With HIPHOPPLAYA” on 27 May, 7PM PHT.
The concert series is open to viewers in the Philippines and around the world. Fans will get the chance to enjoy their favorite K-POP acts from the comfort and safety of their homes while doing their part to aid COVID-19 relief efforts. 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.
“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 John Castro, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Philippines.
As a platform created to inspire joy and creativity, TikTok will continue to actively seek more ways to contribute to global COVID-19 relief efforts, including identifying the most effective ways to allocate resources to support ongoing needs. Alongside the community, artistes, organisations and ordinary people across the globe stepping up in this critical moment, TikTok is committed to playing its part in this global outpouring of mutual support and giving.
