COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Update

Posted: 18th September 2021
UPDATE: UK/ Republic of Ireland opened-up events-wise, but some legal restrictions/ local venue restrictions still in place.

The whole of the UK has opened-up events-wise, but note there are still some restrictions - some imposed by the law and some imposed by venues, so please ensure you know the rules before attending a gig/ event.

In England, there are no legal restrictions currently imposed on events, but note that some venues require proof of vaccine/ antibodies via your NHS app.

In Scotland, Coronavirus vaccination certificates will be required to enter certain events and higher risk venues, such as nightclubs, music festivals and some football grounds.

In Wales, as of 11th October, you will need to have a valid NHS Covid pass or proof of a recent negative lateral flow test result within the last 48 hours.

In Northern Ireland, social distancing measures are still in force for indoor, but not outdoor events.

The Republic of Ireland still has capacity restrictions in place for indoor events and you will need proof of your Covid vaccine status/ antibodies.

As you can imagine, all of the above are subject to reviews of the data and will depend on how the UK/ Republic of Ireland is doing.

For international artists, there is still the problem of travel and local restrictions in their/ your country which means some events will be postponed until such time that they may leave their/ enter your country.
