Barcelona festival to go ahead with 25.000 people daily.
Crüilla festival organizers in Barcelona, Spain, stated that this year`s edition will take place July 8-10 with a tested and masked audience of 25.000 per day.

The news follows a series of successful test events in the Catalan city, the most recent of which was a March 27 concert at the Palau Sant Jordi venue by Spanish rock band Love of Lesbian.

Within 14 days after the concert, only six of the 4,592 concertgoers who consented to the study of their COVID-19 diagnosis were diagnosed positive.

Attendees of Crüilla Festival 2021 will be subject to the same security procedures as those at the concert: an antigen test on each day they enter the site and the continuous use of an FFP2 mask issued at the gate.

Daily capacity, according to Festival director Jordi Herreruela (pictured), will be 25,000 people each day for three days, for a total of 75,000 people "will have total freedom of movement.

"We aim to carry out 25,000 tests in six hours every day," he continued, adding, "The experience for the public will be very similar to how it was before the pandemic, although to enter the venue you will have to book a slot, do an antigen test that will cost €8.5, and after a few minutes, when they receive the result, they will be able to access the venue."

Each day, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., the test screening areas will be open. Attendees will be able to reserve a time slot as the day approaches.
