London — London’s clubber on Monday flocked to one of the first rule-free live music events since the pandemic began last year, dancing all night when Britain lifted most COVID-19 restrictions at midnight, humans. I was delighted with the interaction.
Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lifted most of Britain’s restrictions called “Freedom Day.”
Epidemiologists are generally skeptical that lifting the restrictions is the right thing to do, but many young British say they have experienced enough blockades for over a year and a half and are anxious for the party. I am.
“I’m not allowed to dance like eternity,” said Georgia Pike, 31, in an oval space in Hackney, eastern London. “I want to dance, listen to live music, feel like I’m in a gig, I want to feel like I’m around other people.”
In the club, Liberer danced all night, with some holding pints and others simply overjoyed by the music. Many hugged, some kissed, and some wore masks.
The Johnson administration says England can resume after vaccination of the population earlier than almost all other European countries, as fully vaccinated people are less likely to get serious illness with COVID-19. I’m confident.
Event promoters Rob Broadbent and Max Wheeler-Bowden have released their video taking the COVID-19 test. They urged those who were told to quarantine to do so.
They said they lost money at the event, reducing the number of bands and venues because there were fewer participants than expected.
British society seems to be divided about restrictions. Some want to continue strict rules for fear that the virus will continue to kill people, while others suffer from the most annoying restrictions in peacetime history.
While many students, young people and parents are quietly ignoring many of the most annoying rules, business owners such as nightclubs, travel agencies and the hospitality industry are anxious to restart the economy.
The artist says the blockade was tough.
James Cox, a 32-year-old lead singer from the post-punk band Crows playing at The Oval Space, said he last performed live on Halloween 2020.
“I was a little worried that I wouldn’t like it because it’s so long,” Cox said. “As soon as I stood on that stage and started the soundcheck, I got: Oh yeah, I like this. I love this. I love this.”
