WATCH: German Club Throws Socially Distanced Dance Party in Open-Air

The first show since lockdown took place in Germany last week (Thursday, May 21), as dance music artist Gerd Janson played to a socially distanced crowd. The TakaTuka-run event went down at Coconut Beach in Münster, also featuring Steve Stix, Kai Lorenzen and Thorsten Karger.

Just 100 tickets were sold (and sold out within 15 minutes) for the 2,000-capacity outdoor venue at €70 a pop. According to a report, that price included €21 worth of food and beverages. Organizers have made it clear, once the venue is able to raise capacity, ticket prices for events like these are expected to drop in price.

Janson explained the night in his own words:

Whatever your take on all of this is, part of it is how to deal with it, and how to make things possible again that were taken as a given. Taking all this into account, it went really well: a bittersweet mixture of nostalgia and hope. I had fun and I hope the dancers, too. It felt like a reinsurance that it can go on in some way, shape or form until things can get back to normal.

To be honest, it’s a little eerie playing back footage from the event, as music fans were forced to dance apart with masks on due to safety guidelines. However, this is the reality we are facing as live events begin to reemerge.

STUDY: 82% of Festivalgoers Ready to Return to Live Events

Whether or not it’s safe for live events just yet, fans are ready to get back at it!

According to Festicket, 82% of festivalgoers are ready to return to live events and 82% of respondents would return to live events within the next six months if given the opportunity.

Furthermore, approximately 33% of the participants across the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands say they’d “feel confident to attend a festival immediately after lockdown is lifted.”

After two to three months, 35% would feel comfortable attending events. After six months, an additional 16% would return to events, granted the lockdown is lifted.

Festicket marketing director Luis Sousa said: “Despite all the current uncertainty, it’s reassuring to see a high percentage of festivalgoers have a positive outlook for the live events industry, backed up by over 75% saying they’d feel comfortable booking events for 2021.”

Festicket surveyed 110,000 people for this study.

Oktoberfest 2020 Canceled: “The Risks Are Simply Too High”

Oktoberfest, the world’s largest folk/beer festival, will not be happening in 2020 due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

The massive annual gathering, known for its lively parades and flowing beer taps, was set to go down over September 19th through October 4th in Munich, Bavaria, Germany.

The country’s ban on large-scale events is currently only effective until August 31st, but with Oktoberfest attracting 6 million revelers from all over the world, it just can’t happen. “The risks are simply too high,” Oktoberfest’s website states.

Markus Soeder, premier of the southern German state said, “This is not a normal year and it is unfortunately a year without the Oktoberfest.” He added, “It hurts. It is a huge shame.”

It’s a major blow to the local economy as well, because Oktoberfest brings in 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) each year. However, the event has been canceled in the past due to cholera epidemics and World War Two, so officials and organizers hope to overcome once again.

At the time of this report, Germany had 143,457 cases of coronavirus and 4,598 related deaths.

Here you can find further information and statements from public officials.

Mishlawi – Ignore lyrics

[Chorus]
Lord, when they call my phone I just press ignore
Couple A&Rs live on my front porch
They say that I’m almost on I tell them I know
Know oh oh oh oh

Lord, when they call my phone I just press ignore
Couple A&Rs live on my front porch
They say that I’m almost on I tell them I know
Know oh oh oh oh

[Verse 1]
My circle full
They thought that I need them but I’m cool
Taking my space up they better move
‘Cause if it ain’t this shit what would I do
Probably give it to her like she wanna
Hands up on her make her jaw drop
And the only time she running to me now
When she run and come and give me nana
I’m into getting my funds up
I got a bitch out in London
They don’t know just how much shit be ringing on me

[Chorus 2x]
Lord, when they call my phone I just press ignore
Couple A&Rs live on my front porch
They say that I’m almost on I tell them I know
Know oh oh oh oh

[Verse 2]
My circle full
Thought that they was special they confused
The truth is I don’t think I’m much like you yeah yeah
I ain’t no fool yeah yeah
I paid my dues on dues now they can kiss my ass
Remember when they would talk down its like now they be lucky if talking to me
Just came from Germany fresh off the flight after signing the deal of your dreams
I just don’t think you’d know
Quite how much they would call

[Chorus 2x]
Lord, when they call my phone I just press ignore
Couple A&Rs live on my front porch
They say that I’m almost on I tell them I know
Know oh oh oh oh

[Middle 8 2x]
Change, how could I change I’m used to me
Way, there is no way to cut these strings
