The United Kingdom has recently held its first socially distanced concert on August 11 amid the pandemic.
For party-goers, this type of event doesn’t stop even with a pandemic.
As seen on a photo re-shared by Twitter user @goldenraindrops (Katie), it shows attendees wearing face masks and observing physical distancing. Barricades are also in place to separate guests from another.

Others say that the new set up in the new normal situation looks ‘amazing’ as there were no more ‘pushing and shoving’ among concert-goers.
The performer at the event was Sam Fender, headlining the new Virgin MoneyUnity Arena at Newcastle Racecourse with 2,500 attendees watching on from 500 platforms which were spaced two meters apart from each other.
