Tongzhou district is slating more than 21.6 billion yuan ($3.24 billion) to build a "music industry zone," in the hopes of providing the region with venues for live shows while creating a music production center, authorities announced at a contract signing ceremony Saturday.

The Tongzhou New Music City will cover 3.3 square kilometers located south of the Beijing-Harbin Expressway within the Sixth Ring Road and include five themed "zones." The entertainment zone will include different music venues looking to attract big name acts, according to a release by multimedia company Long Legacy, main investor to sign with Tongzhou district on the project.
