Don't have tickets for latitude, but very curious what happens with it. Melvin seemed like the guy with the most money & most connections who was determined his festivals would go ahead.

 

If he starts cancelling I'll be surprised if anyone else can pull it off

Not at the same kind of point in July, no. But deeper into August, there should be grounds for optimism. All a question of whether or not the organisers can be confident to spend on the infrastructure. Green Man, Lost Village, Reading etc. All four weeks + after 19 July...

I think this kinda of tells you where events are at. If Latitude call it by the end of the week then that'll be the lot.

Yet football fans can all get drunk and stand together indoors!

It's 45k in one game essentially every other seat and spread out via different entrance gates etc.

How do you dictate 45k + at a festival and where they go? Indoors it will be social distancing and the amount of people in each area will be much less. The courcourse at Wembley is massive.

I really don't get why people struggle to see the difference between a primarily seated event and a non seated event

Maybe you’ll get it now?

It is sort of an indoor mass gathering to be fair, not hugely different to a festival, just indoors...

But it is different. It's going to be half the crowds.

Crucially the Wembley events are bring treated as test pilots too and potentially Wimbledon. Are you going to do a test pilot event for larger outdoor events? There is a reason why the outdoor test pilot events are being done at 10k max.

What am I supposed to be getting?

You’re looking at people all crowded together dancing and singing on a Wembley concourse

Obviously you also have them All travelling there, drinking beforehand

Yes It’s a test event, yes they need a PCR test, but outdoor events should happen even if they ask for PCR tests.

But in that context we are basically saying that Latitude would need to be half and Reading brought down to 45k for it to go again. So you've now got to tell 45k people they can't go.

Further more. Each Wembley game is a day event, each Wimbledon is the same. These others are 3-5 day camping events. Whereas the most a camping event is currently getting is 10k

Half a stadium full before restrictions are lifted which has doubled from the 22.5k this month. All pilot information and another month it's not unreasonable that restrictions are lifted and it doubles again from 45 to 90k. Camping shouldn't be an issues as campsites are open. If they have too and they can they'll just make sure you need to test on entry.

They will have a very hard time passing 90k even with testing.

Maybe so but if the trails have gone well and you've gone from 22.5k to 45k within a month I don't think it's unrealistic to expect it to go from 45k to 90k within a month especially when the restrictions are meant to be gone come 19th July, obviously anything extended after that and it's gone I'd agree but if there is a possibility it will happen Melvin/FR will push it forward I'm sure. They could even call it a "test event" for that size capacity, who knows but I guess we'll see how the next few months unfold.

Has anybody heard anything about Lost Village? No update since January. 

As Noisily is in the bin and Houghton is supposedly about to announce cancellation, just worried about my last horse!

I don't see a test event for that size. That's fair and wide the biggest they'll have ever done and will set us up for longterm pre festival testing. Don't give them that idea.

There is a big jump from 22.5 to 45k for some games and then jumping 45k instead of 22.5k. 

So really you want to be saying is if we can go from 22.5k in a month to 45k, it's more realistic to go to late 60k next. Also it'll depend how strong the hospitals numbers and case numbers get etc.

Lost Village? It announced its lineup a couple of weeks ago.

Remind me again why we think camping festivals are more risky? 

Surely if everyone is testing on arrival or vaccinated you've essentially got a closed environment where you only interact with other negative or vaccinated people. 

Whereas multi day events like parklife, or attending multiple football matches, have people interacting with untested, potentially unvaccinated individuals afterwards and then going back into the event potentially bringing in cases.
