The World's First Socially Distanced Music Festival is Scheduled for This August

Unlocked festival is proposed to take place in Northern Ireland for two weekends.

With many IRL events canceled and businesses slowly opening back up amidst the coronavirus pandemic, plans for the first-ever socially distanced music festival have now been announced. Unlocked is slated to kick off this August in Northern Ireland.

Organized by the Stendhal Festival team, Unlocked will run with strict hygiene and social distancing measures to prevent the spread of new COVID-19 cases. The festival supposedly hasn’t received government approval just yet, but it is currently proposed to take place at Ballymutty Cottage Farm from August 21 to 22 and August 28 to 29, with a capacity between 500 to 1,000 people above 21 years old.

Festival-goers will be able to choose between weekend camping and non-camping tickets, with the event site featuring a camping area where strictly two people from the same household or social support bubble can share a tent. Further precautions include temperature checks upon entry and distances between queues and campsites.

While details have not been revealed yet, tickets for Unlocked will go on sale starting July 4 on the festival’s official website, where you can also read more about the specific measures being taken to ensure safety for all.
