England holds experimental music festival to test whether such events spread COVID-19

Around 5,000 fans packed into a sold-out music festival that was the first live gig in front of a large audience since England went into lockdown 14 months ago.

It was just like old times as festivalgoers did not have to wear face masks or social distance during Sunday’s Covid test event at Sefton Park in Liverpool

Everyone had to produce negative coronavirus tests to enter the outdoor gig, which was hailed as a milestone towards getting live events running as England’s coronavirus lockdown is eased.

The six-hour festival includes performances from indie bands Blossoms and The Lathums, as well as local singer-songwriter Zuzu
