United Kingdom launches first social-distancing festival site

This concert festival site goes the distance.

The United Kingdom opened the first socially distanced outdoor festival site over the weekend — with safety measures such as spaced-out lounge chairs to protect guests from spreading coronavirus.

Festival-goers book their own individual outdoor seating area, each about six feet apart and large enough for six people, at the Gisburne Park Pop-Up in the Lancashire countryside, the Evening Standard reported


Arrivals and departures to the festival will be staggered so there’s no crowding at the entrance, and food and drinks are delivered directly to guests to prevent lines from forming at the venue, organizers said.

The festival, which will run for eight weeks, has an entertainment calendar with a mix of live DJs, film screenings, opera and family sing-alongs.
