7th March 2021 (Your EDM). British festival directors called an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss the return live music. Artists and fans may have to take the coronavirus vaccine - and show proof - before attending UK music festivals this summer. Festival organizers are considering this approach following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s roadmap announcement for exiting lockdown. With live music set to return on June 21, festivals are selling out in record time and demand is high. To make festival season happen, organizers are weighing out the options for on-site COVID-19 testing, vaccine passports, and plenty of other health and safety protocols.
