Slamtent, a 3 day dance music event by Fly Open Air in Edinburgh that was scheduled to happen on “the first day it was allowed” which eventually settled on August 22nd has just been rescheduled to March 2022 due to lack of clarity from ScotGov on whether it would be able to go ahead. 
 

Says in their statement that there’s no advice for large scale events like it.

Fatboy tonight is recommendation of lateral flows … all done and all clear for me and friends … I’m not sure it’s gonna be capacity … as I’m sure some nervous people may not turn up and the tickets can’t really be resold and a new ventilation for cheese and grain which changes air every 6 mins sounds good 🙂

i've no idea why improving ventilation hasn't been a bigger concern, offering grants to businesses to install better systems

To be honest there was a case for that even before the pandemic. That there wasn't legislation passed for it 6+ months ago is a disgrace.

OutCider is going ahead - sold out but there's a waitlist for returns they're getting through. We've had to drop out due to a friend's wedding being rescheduled the same weekend. Lovely little festival if you've never been. Imagine the Avalon area at Glastonbury with the cider bus dropped in.

With so many events / festivals going ahead it does make the panning of the September event at Worthy Farm sting a little bit more!

So happy for all of those taking the plunge.

It does … we will never know the things /thing that made them pull the plug …

If the Foo Fighters rumor was true, then it could be as simple as international travel uncertainty.

I wouldn't buy that though, there are plenty of British based acts capable of headlining so they could simply replace them, I reckon it was logistics of it so close to the event

I hold out hope for a normal Pilton Party sized event.

Hate myself for falling down a rabbit hole but the wording used "We've decided not to go ahead with the September gig idea..." certainly opens the door for Pilton Party.

License already approved
Smaller capacity
Aimed at locals
etc.

Victorious Festival sent out their guidance for entry so it’s looking good now!

Except it's not guidance it's mandatory vaccine passport, jabbed or test,

"Like many other events happening this Summer, we ask all ticket-holders aged 18 and over to demonstrate their COVID-19 status upon entering the festival by supplying one of the following:

  • Proof of full vaccination– both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the festival) or
  • Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test– taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the festival or
  • Proof of natural immunity– based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the festival (including 10 days self-isolation following the result)."

it remains to be seen how much this delays entry and how strictly they adhere to these rules.

If people have their proof of vaccination and/or negative test ready then I see no reason for delays. It’s the idiots refusing to comply and kicking up a fuss over a simple request that will hold things up. And I imagine they’re gonna adhere to the rules pretty strictly.

Mental the amount of people kicking off in the comments about this. They're not asking for mandatory vaccination ffs, one Karen even calling it medical apartheid. Hope these people don't bother frankly, world is better off without them anyway.

Most festivals ask for mandatory proof of age. Given the current circumstances I really don't understand what the issue is. Don't want to do it? Then don't go. 

Clubs already often scan ID and have search requirements, if you don't agree with those you don't get in. 

 

I'm volunteering at wilderness so I'm really hoping that there's a side queue to send those people down that don't have their app ready. So the rest is sped up.

My local venue is asking for one of the three options for their events starting from tomorrow, as you said you'd think they'd just said they were sentencing their families to death the way some people were reacting in the comments. It's the safest way to get gigs running again and avoiding the venues from having to shut for periods if there were outbreaks related to the venues. I bet you these are the people who would moan first if events had to be cancelled and restrictions toughened

Supposed to be heading to Motion on Friday for a Boiler Room event but think we're going to sack it off unfortunately due to Covid.

Was originally an outdoor party before the delay and with it being fully indoors now not sure we're comfortable.

Had both my jabs and have zero objection to taking a test prior to going (took one ahead of last night's gig) and sharing the result as required, but there's something about the vaccine passport thing I have deep misgivings about. And I know I'm going to have to make a decision about it come October.

Having said that, the people likening it to apartheid or Nazi Germany can get right in the fucking sea.

London Freqs crew. I just did a rapid test with a couple of photos to demonstrate how we’re running things on the door on Friday night & how easy this is, it’s very simple. 1. Take a photo / selfie of yourself with your unused rapid test showing the code & number. (See photo 1 below) 2. Take the test & wait 30 minutes. 3. Take another photo of yourself with the completed test showing the code & number. (See photo 2 below) 4. Bring photos (dated on your phone) & the negative test result with you & you’re in. This takes seconds & couldn’t be easier. This system doesn’t need any NHS or track & trace apps. No data is stored & it’s totally private & between us. If you’re feeling sick or have any Covid symptoms whatsoever please do not even think of coming. We will also be doing temperature checks on the door & have plenty of rapid tests at the venue should anyone not be able to grab rapid tests.
