Saturday night Chems is going to be epic 😍

And yes, yes, yes to other festivals & events being able to go ahead 🤞😁

Yeah I can't wait, Wolf Alice on Friday will be amazing too, especially after Blue Weekend 

Saw an interview with Melvin and he's said it will probably be a test event if it can't happen normally but the fact he's been talking to government officials gives me a whole lot more confidence for it 

I wonder also if more festivals the same weekend will announce their plans now too

Glastonbury pal of mine is at the Download pilot.

I'm not into metal.

It's raining.

I'd join him there now in a heartbeat.

Me yesterday- ‘perhaps it’s for the best that I didn’t get a ticket as it looks like it’s going to rain’

Me today- ‘I wish I was there in the rain’

We've just seen Bill Bailey is on the Obelisk on Sun afternoon, a comedian on the main stage!  Amazing😍  love Bill & comedy tent is so rammed every time he headlines.

I'm quite happy for it to be a test event if that's what's needed to get the entertainment industry back on it's feet - I'll show my vaccination certs, do a lateral flow or pcr, whatever, just get me in a field with live entertainment again ❤

"Latitude in particular"- pretty sure it'll be a test event. Won't help others like kendal and y not as results will be too late, but will help him put that on and reading maybe! Just like ALW - appease those who shout the loudest 

Hope im wrong obviously! And obviously happy for you Latitude people

Tried to get a place with Oxfam but missed out, made other plans, then more places came up but couldn't do it now. 

Just watching the report on BBC News. What I wouldn't give to be there watching bands I've never heard of, in a genre I'm not into, in the rain

Bath holding its Pub in the Park Festival
Bringing a tear to my eye!!! Hopefully the first of many! 

Was there last night. Can't tell you how nice it was to be outside with people and bouncing around to music. Man I missed it.

I even enjoyed Tom Walker, I did keep telling him off for leaving the light on. I am a Dad it's my Job

Yet we're worried about August festivals not happening...

With the other sporting events it's been a bit different to a festival as they are seated, but golf is similar to a festival in terms of its lots of people standing in close proximity.

Just a bit worried that it's people with influence/connections to the government that are allowed to have test events rather than events in general being allowed.

Doesn't bode well for the smaller festivals

Worried about green man now

it was always a gamble but its not looking great as 4/5 weeks after 19 july - must be about when they start the build

I'm not sure if Green Man would rely on the same things as in Wales? No idea what the current Welsh rules are on events, though.

Except it isn't really different, is it? 25000 at Kendal Calling vs 145000 at the Grand Prix. No way are you 'better protected' from mixing and transmission if you're in a place with almost six times as many people. 

It's a joke. Bottom line is that there will be no world media showing thousands of waving Union Flags from Kendal Calling...

Steelhouse festival in Wales seem to be talking positively in their tweets, that’s in about 4 weeks so we’re pretty close to decision day I would have thought.
