Now it is true! Musicians are back on stage.

It has been just a few days since we expressed our disbelief at the delay of the decision by the government to allow indoor performances. We mentioned that the measure would be studied again on August 15th and said that, given the circumstances, we expected nothing much than another delay. To our surprise, the outcome was quite the opposite. Indoor performances are allowed since last Saturday!

It is not as if everything went back to normal. The decision applies to England (Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have other policies, please check them out if you are in their territories) and it excludes nightclubs in general, and areas with local lockdowns in particular. Of course, it is also required that the performances comply with all the guidelines given by the government in regards of safe practices during the COVID-19 pandemic and the appropriate safe social distance.

Please read and understand all the recommendations and regulations so you can safely go back to work as soon as possible. Let’s hope now that the Government and audiences alike help us recover from the harsh hit that this pandemic has been for performing artists. Together, we will overcome this and any other challenge!
