5000 people will soon attend a music concert headlined by Blossoms in Liverpool, where they will not be required to social distance.
However, on 2nd May in Sefton Park, Liverpool there will be a 5000 person concert as part of the Government’s pilot scheme.
Social distancing will not be necessary and masks will not be required.
All attendees are required to do is get a negative Covid test result, which will be done with a 30 minute lateral flow test. They also have to be living in the Liverpool region to purchase a ticket.
After the concert, they will be tested again. They will also need to sign up to the NHS track and trace, to monitor if there is any outbreak of Covid.

It has also been announced there will be other trials in Liverpool, such as events in nightclubs, comedy clubs and business events venues.
For example, there is a two day long day rave titled “The First Dance” on 30th April and 1st May.
Music lovers can expect Fatboy Slim, The Blessed Madonna, Jayda G and Hot Since 82.
I’m very honoured to be playing ‘The First Dance’, the UK’s first dance music event without social distancing in over a year! Organised by @CIRCUSmusic in association with the Events Research Programme (ERP). @yousefcircus

The public appears to be divided over these events taking place:
This is where our priority needs to shift. Schools yada yada…. https://t.co/tmE5xcoQyf
