Anyone who (like me) loved VLURE - they're playing a free show in London on Thursday 26th August, tickets on DICE 👍

Thanks.  They were great. I thought the frontman was going to nut someone at the beginning,  but that all changed.

But how are they going to get results? wasn't the Sefton Park gig dependent on people doing LFTs afterwards? Latitude don't even know who was at the festival - only the names of those who bought the ticket. And I've not been asked if I tested positive. I think once the government gave the green light for festivals, Melvin pulled the budget and decided to just do a bit of smoke and mirrors

Hang on - you're right! I'd forgotten that. Although of course they're just relying on the info we gave as there were no ID checks. There weren't any checks of my double vax either. I couldn't get a signal so just showed a printout, which could have been anyones. I've been pinged since I got back (think it was from Sunday) so there were certainly cases around. Just went to show how much of a sledgehammer the app is. The only time I ever felt I might be at risk was in the Alcove (Vlure @bethannny - thanks for the Dice tipoff!) but I spent most of Sunday outside either at the Obelisk, BBC Introducing or on the edge of Sunrise. You're never going to catch Covid there.

They still haven't published the Stage II research results yet (they were going to be peer reviewed so I guess it may take a while).

It does make you wonder if we'll ever see the Stage III results from Latitude (and of course the longer they are left not published the less relevant they will become as the circumstances around things such as vaccine roll out changes)

To be honest I think it was always intended as helping festivals next year. I think we're in for a pretty tough winter so to have all this in place could help festivals to have the confidence of announcing even if events have been pulled again. 

We've just had a bit of a bonus of having some beyond the ERP to show it can be done without things going completely wrong. I'm not sure when ERP was created that there was the intention to allow that

Hi troops how strict were they at latitude in terms of checking if you had uploaded your lateral flow test before entering?

We checked your confirmation email or text message from the NHS rather than checking the test itself.

Though obviously those are easy to fake or to submit false results, and there's no workable way of verifying the result.

Trial results are in and they suggest 2.6% of attendees caught the virus there. To be truthful I expected a lot more but it shows you can't always believe social media.

Not to downplay the pandemic but these seem pretty stable numbers and probably mean next summers festival season will be alright  with simular measures in place.
