The Pandemic hurt the music festival industry in such a way that it could take years to recoup. Many employees had become disengaged from work during Covid. From stage crew, audio engineers, box office workers; of course musicians and singers were all affected by the virus that continues to plague the world today.
There is light at the end of the tunnel, public places, businesses, and tourist attractions are slowly opening up to “A New Normal.” The things we took for granted will now be under a new regime. There’s a price to be had and when music festivals eventually return. Social-distancing restrictions will continue to be a movement in our lives and be held for a smaller congregation of concert-goers with limited reach.
When all is said and done it may take some time to get the “new normal going” but the question is, what will be different when live concerts return? We just have to take a wait-and-see approach.
BackBeat R&B has put together a list of 10 concerts for 2021, that is gaining the momentum to reopen. Music lovers, please keep your eyes and ears open for continuous updates.
