Feeder to perform live as Wales announce return of music events



The Welsh government has confirmed that live music events can finally return to the country.

Concerts can return again, with a maximum of 6 people from 6 households allowed to attend. Ventilation guidelines should be followed and one-way systems should also be used.

These live concerts include an outdoor Feeder concert at Tredegar Park in Newport on July 9. Further concerts will also include a live performance by Foals at Cardiff Castle on August 12.

Risk assessments should also be carried out on the sites in accordance with the representation and reception guidelines.

It comes as restaurants and theaters were allowed to reopen earlier this month in the country. The change does not include nightclubs, however.

This also comes after it was confirmed that “no detectable propagation” of Covid-19 was found during one of the pilot events that have taken place in Liverpool in recent weeks. More on that here.

“The biggest shocks for our feeling of well-being”

Speaking to the BBC, a Welsh government spokesperson said the closure of sites due to the pandemic has been “The biggest shocks for our sense of well-being and the economy of the arts”.

“We will continue to support our music and arts sectors in Wales through our cultural revival, freelance and economic resilience funds”, he added.

The Welsh government had received calls from the Music Venue Trust to set a date for the reopening of live music events.

The trust had submitted an open letter asking the government to clarify when live shows can return to the country.
