Aware that some countries that have Covid-19 under control already have concerts and festivals up and running, we’re trying not to generalise about live music. However, for those countries still awaiting a musical reopening, this weekend’s concert in Barcelona for indie band Love of Lesbian will be an encouraging sight.

It was an experiment for a crowd that had all taken rapid Covid-19 tests before the concert. Everyone wore a mask during the gig, but there was no social distancing required.

Reuters explains how it worked, with tests and a mask included in the ticket price; 80 nurses on hand to conduct the tests beforehand; and refunds for any fans who tested positive.
