5000 people will soon attend a music concert headlined by Blossoms in Liverpool, where they will not be required to social distance.

According to Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of the pandemic: clubs, festivals and big concerts are not due to open until at least 21st June.

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.

Stockport’s Blossoms are set to headline this gig, with other musicians announced including The Lathums and Zuzu.

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.

The public appears to be divided over these events taking place:
