“2021 New Year’s Eve Live” is a live New Year’s countdown show. It is one of the many virtual shows artists under Big Hit Labels have put on in 2020 in an effort to connect with fans amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
According to a press release, the virtual concert “will unfold a new ‘music story’ every year through performances that bring artists and the audience closer together. This year’s theme, ‘We’ve connected,’ will be narrated by music, performances and stages broken down into the sub themes ‘WE,’ ‘RE,’ ‘NEW’ and ‘2021 Connect.'”
The press release states that the goal of the event is to “extend a message of hope and consolation to music fans all over the world who communicate through ‘music’ in a time when physical encounters and networking are neglected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
In addition to Lee Hyun, Bumzu, NU’EST, BTS, GFRIEND, TXT, and ENHYPEN, the New Year’s show will put an emphasis on global connection, and Lauv, Halsey, and Steve Aoki will take part in a “Global Connect Stage.”
