Live gigs are back! Music lovers unite as venue creates bubbles for friendship groups

How the future of music will look in our new normal.

It’s been a long old slog of Zoom calls and talking to each other over garden fences, but now it looks like we can finally reunite and enjoy live music together again.

Only warning is to the crowd-surfers, it may look a little different to how you remember.

Instead of being squished together in the mosh-pit, the public will now be invited to have their own booths while fenced in and socially distanced from others.

So really, anyone in the 30+ bracket will likely be overjoyed at the revamp which resembles more of a VIP style vibe with all guests in a secluded bubble of their own.

The only catch, guests sharing a bubble must arrive in the same car.

The UK’s first socially distanced music venue took place earlier this month, as 2,500 fans descended on Gosforth Park in Newcastle’s pop-up Virgin Money Unity Arena.

Tickets are priced at £37.50 per person, with a £20 charge per party to reserve the platform, with options to pre-order drinks from varying wine, beer or cider packages.

With 500 metal platforms, each spaced 2m apart and seating up to five people, the private areas include a table, chairs, and even a fridge.

Sounds like a dream, tbh.

So far, singer-songwriter Sam Fender and Two Door Cinema Club have performed at the venue, with upcoming shows from Supergrass, The Libertines and Ronan Keating.
