As announced today as part of the Night-Time Economy Taskforce report, a pilot dance event is also due to take place on September 30th in The Button Factory, organised by Hidden Agenda and District 8 in consultation with Give us the Night.
The event will help develop a safe template and pilot the logistics of event ticketing, venue admittance, the impact of antigen testing, ventilation and monitoring to ensure a safe and financially sustainable return to indoor events.
There will be 450 people attending, which is 60% of the venue’s maximum capacity, and attendees must, according to current guidelines, produce a Digital Covid Certificate. Antigen testing will also be required and will be carried out close to the venue.
The gig details were just announced and playing are:
- Sunil Sharpe
- R Kitt
- Kelly Anne Byrne
- Sim Simma
- Same Greenwood
Doors open at 8:30pm – 3am. The event is over 18s and ID is required. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 September on Eventbrite.
The National Concert Hall is also to develop a pilot late-night event, exploring the challenges involved and developing best-practice guidance for promoters, artists and venue operators.
More details on the pilot gig as we get it.
