A survey carried out by The Music Venue Trust shows 82.1% of people who regularly attended live shows pre-pandemic had already headed to – or intend to head to – a full-capacity event.
It has been around a month since clubs reopened without any requirement for restrictions to be in place, bringing back some normality to the live music and events industry.
The survey collected 1,891 responses from people who regularly attended events pre-pandemic, with over half of live music fans saying they had already attended a gig since venues had reopened in England – and a further 30% were planning to head back to a full-capacity event in the near future.
The Chief Executive of The Music Venue Trust, Mark Davyd, said:
“These survey results clearly demonstrate a will by the live music community to create safe spaces.”
Further from the survey, 91.3% of respondents were either fully vaccinated, tested negative, or had natural immunity before attending an event.
The current number of vaccinations given out across the UK stands at 88 million, with 41 million accounting for people who have had their two vaccinations. A total of 47 million have had their first vaccination, which represents 70%+ of the UK population.
When it came to those wanting to see vaccination passports introduced at venues, only 2.1% wanted to see this enforced – clearly demonstrating a very strong stance against vaccination passports.
