Dutch government plans to allow music festivals from July
10th February 2021 (Far Out Mag). Good news! This summer festival season has been blighted the world over for one very obvious reason, but The Netherlands have just offered the latest glimmer of hope after stating that they aim to get shows back on the road after July 1st. Last month, the Dutch government announced a cancellation fund of more than €300million in order to allow event organisers to reschedule shows panned before July 1st to the second half of the year, with security that they will be covered if the pandemic stops events going ahead any time after that date. The safety net fund will cover all events that attract a minimum of 3,000 visitors.
