The special edition for Chinese audiences will be exclusively broadcast on Tencent Music's QQ Music, Kugou Music, Kuwo Music and WeSing, free of charge and through the TME Live platform. Three music videos recorded from Billie's livestreaming concert have gone live on Tencent Music's various platforms as well.

The interactive production was carried out by lili Studios. The concert featured performances by Billie with her brother and fellow artist Finneas, as well as drummer Andrew Marshall. The performance was conducted on a 60ft x 24ft stage, surrounded by 100ft x 24ft LED screens that provided 3D, real-time content integration.

Having spent months working on the event's creative features with live production company Moment Factory, the livestream drew upon elements from Billie's postponed arena tour.
