Following on from the 'Good Business Festival Conference' earlier in the week, Liverpool once again was the host to a dance night which will see some 6,000 clubbers visit the Bramley-Moore Dock warehouse on 30 April & 1 May.
This event, hosted by Circus entitled: 'The First Dance', was of huge significance as it marks the first time that clubbers have hit the dance floor in over 12 months.
Yousef Zaher, the owner of Circus Liverpool, which hosted the landmark event, said ahead of the night: “I’m enormously excited, I can feel the pressure release as I’m about to play some music. I think people will be emotional – it’s a lot to take in after 14 months of nothing.” He continued,"Looking ahead to life beyond the 21st June, it's extremely exciting for DJs, artists, crew and the clubbers - everyone just wants to get back to work."
Attendees had to have two negative lateral flow test result before being there ticket was activated, but once inside the venue there was no social distancing, no vaccine passports & no masks. A third lateral flow test will also be required after the event to help gather data for the event. And although DW were not at this event, all the videos and photos shared on social media indicate that all who attended had a fantastic time and mixed together fully. Once again the attendees at the event were being studied by government scientists and officials.
Sven Väth, the Blessed Madonna and Jayda G performed at the event on Friday night, with Fatboy Slim set to star on Saturday.
Following the success of the business conference a few days earlier, it appears on first glance that this event was also a success and should take the industry on the first steps back to being allowed to reopen when deemed appropriate by the government.
