BRITS PASS COVID TEST
5/26/21

Zero cases of COVID were diagnosed among the BRIT Award attendees giving the U.K. Government hope that it can stick to its plan to reopen 6/21. Included in the next phase of testing is the Download festival.

Zero cases of COVID were diagnosed among the BRIT Award attendees giving the U.K. Government hope that it can stick to its plan to reopen 6/21. Included in the next phase of testing is the Download festival.

The BRITS award ceremony was the first major indoor event with an audience, in this case 4,000 frontline workers who were allowed to forego social distancing and face coverings. 

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden told the Evening Standard the event was “a real success” and that he was “very hopeful” that venues and theaters would be able to reopen at full capacity on 6/21.

The BRITs were part of the Events Research Programme that came up with just 15 cases of COVID-19 among the 58k people who attended events such as the FA Cup final and a Blossoms concert in Liverpool.

The government is in the process of commissioning a second round of trials involving larger crowds at major venues including a 10k-capacity edition of the Download festival 6/18-21 in Derby. Attendees will need to prove they have tested negative in the days before the show. Organizers will announce the lineup on Friday.

Professional musicians, though, are far better off than amateurs: Amateur choirs in England have been restricted to gatherings of six people indoors and 30 outdoors.
