BERLIN (AP) The nightclubs in the German capital have decided to keep the beat going, at least online.

Berlin's nightclubs were closed on March 13 in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

In response, some clubs formed a streaming platform to let DJs, musicians and artists continue to perform.

The first livestream of the “United We Stream” project took place last week.

The shows run each night from different clubs. It's free to watch, but people are encouraged to donate to help the clubs and artists.

Over the weekend they raised nearly $300,000 from home-bound fans.
