05 Jun events to look forward to!
one thing we all know for sure is that there is no returning to “normal” for both events & entertainment sectors – but within the event/entertainment world covid-19 hasn’t stop us!
every week we are hearing creative ideas from across the world on how organisers are making the most of conferences, festivals & sports events to ensure that attendees can still be a part of the activities from their homes.
as the world starts to adjust to the ‘new normal’ we are gradually opening and taking the first steps. here are a few of the big global events that are due to happen soon!
drive in festival – germany (4th-6th june 2020)
a german radio station has confirmed that it is changing its world club dome event into a drive-in festival! usual this event would host 180,000 attendees over three days – but this year it will welcome 600 “dancing cars” (1,000 total attendees) to an outdoor venue. the event has a vegas theme and headliners will include david guetta, armin van buuren and more. the headliners will be playing to a live audience but will be streaming live from their homes. only german artists will be performing in person due to no travel required. the event will take place from 4-6 june and to ensure attendees feel involved they will be livestreamed to viewers at home.
glastonbury broadcast (26th-28th june 2020)
as glastonbury was also cancelled, the bbc have confirmed that they will be airing classic glastonbury performances to celebrate the festival. bbc two & four will be showing headline sets from previous festivals & bbc iplayer will be featuring a new channel which will be showing historic sets. the bbc will host four days of programming & will be showing highlighted coverage on three 90-minute programmes on bbc two. this is to be broadcasted on 26, 27 and 28 june 2020.
f1 season – austria (starts 3rd july)
f1 season was postponed, but since then the f1 teams and fia have been working together to plan a safe return. it has been confirmed that all races will be supported by both formula 2 and formula 3 & the season is expecting that 15-18 races will take place before december 2020.
f1 currently expects the opening races will be closed to the public for now, but hope fans will be able to attend when it is safe to do so & for the meantime fans around the world can still watch the races from home.
