Young folks like to party, so when social distancing requirements and quarantines of the COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on the clubbing and dance party scene, innovative DJs took clubbing online to create virtual parties.

The live-streamed cloud clubbing has been especially popular in Asia, but the online parties are also being hosted by North American venues shut down by the pandemic. Participants can dance and interact with each other via Zoom or other video apps and venues and DJs encourage participants to make donations to continue support of the cloud clubbing efforts.
