Latest Dutch Government announcement gives the green light for events - just in time for ADE!

Following a torrid time for Dutch nightlife, it seems there may finally be some relieving light at the end of the tunnel follow their national Government’s latest announcement. 

The latest update was made public in an official press release via the Dutch Government’s website on 14th September. 

As of the 25th September 2021, all venues can open again at capacity, providing they are outdoors or have fixed seating indoors. Indoor venues without fixed seating may only open at 75% capacity until stated otherwise. 

Venues are no longer required to operate social distancing measures, meaning people may dance freely & the 1.5-metre rule is no more.

All venues must operate only between 06:00 and 23:59. Any operation outside of these times is still strictly not permitted.

All event entry will be subject to an inspection of a valid coronavirus entry pass. The criteria are very much the same as many other countries, including the UK – whereby you must be fully vaccinated, have a valid proof of recovery or have a negative result from a coronavirus test taken less than 24 hours before entry.

The government announcement handily states: “For people without proof of vaccination or recovery, getting tested will remain free of charge.”

Dutch residents will be able to generate a coronavirus entry pass using the designated ‘CoronaCheck’ app. This will be used in combination with the CoronaCheck Scanner app, which allows hospitality staff to easily check the validity of entry passes.

The above will come as great news to a lot of people, and rightly so. However, the Dutch government have also expressed that whilst restrictions have been lifted, people must remain safe and vigilant and logical, adding: “Many measures have been lifted and we have gotten many of our freedoms back. But the virus has not gone away. It’s still important to keep following the basic rules, even if you’re fully vaccinated.”

This latest announcement is fantastic news for many event organisers and venues, including Awakenings and ADE, with the latter now able to once again add events to their planned October conference.
