A Socially-Distanced Outdoor Concert Takes Place in Newcastle, UK Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Attendees were assigned platforms that were distanced two meters apart.

While a socially-distanced festival in Northern Ireland scheduled for this month was later canceled, musician Sam Fender hosted an outdoor concert last week in Newcastle, UK. Despite concerns of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the event took place with strict safety measures such as maintaining a two-meter distance between attendees.

The Virgin Money Unity Arena, a pop-up venue dedicated to providing safe and socially-distanced experiences during this time, organized Sam Fender’s concert for 2,500 people. The festival ground was sectioned off t0 500 viewing platforms, where groups of up to five people were seated together. Apart from the seating arrangements, cars were parked with a two-meter distance between each other.

“We take safety first and will be providing a comfortable and clean experience for all that attend the events,” the official website for the venue reads. The page also lists out how each event is organized safely, including steps like attendees being guided to their personal platforms, and exiting the venue with given directions.

You can head over to Virgin Money Unity Arena’s official page to learn more about socially-distanced events, along with tickets for festivals and concerts happening soon.
