Micro-blogging platform Weibo, NetEase Cloud Music, ticket-selling site Damai, Alibaba’s music streaming app Xiami, and pop producer and chairman of Alibaba Entertainment Strategic Committee Gao Xiaosong have joined forces to launch a Chinese version of the online musical event One World: Together at Home.

The three-day livestream special concert, named “Believe in the Future,” will feature “hundreds of musicians” and is set to open to all streaming services and video platforms in real-time, Gao announced on Weibo on Monday. Official dates and more information have not been disclosed yet.
