If you’re anything like us, there has been a huge void left in our life by the departure of live music since the pandemic graced us with it’s presence.
Well, last week is where that changed when around 5,000 music fans packed into Sefton Park in Liverpool last night for the first live gig in what feels like forever. The concert, headlined by Stockport indie band Blossoms, was part of the government’s Events Research Programme. The ERP is a series of trials, including two club nights in Liverpool and a cinema. It will look at how to get crowds back safely to mass events.
If the Sefton Park gig is deemed a success, it could be the foundation for how music festivals can go ahead safely this summer and going forward. Which is the positive news all music fans needed with the promise of shows returning. You can read more about it and get all giddy like we did here on the ITV website.
