An experimental concert held in Barcelona appears to have been a success, with "no sign of infection" from COVID-19 according to organisers.

The gig was attended by 5,000 people, all wearing masks, but without physical distancing. All participants underwent antigen testing beforehand.

Two weeks after the concert, PCR tests were conducted on all attendees but no evidence of transmission was found. Six people did test positive for COVID-19, but were said to have been infected elsewhere.

Could this be a solution for attending concerts in the short-term?

John Caddell and Dee Reddy gave their thoughts in our weekly music slot.
