Covid-safe trial club event in Liverpool announces Fatboy Slim, Jayda G, The Blessed Madonna more

The club nights are part of a series of trial events taking place in Liverpool to test safety of mass gatherings

The line-ups have been revealed for two trial club events taking place in Liverpool next week. 

Earler this month, it was announced that 6,000 people would be attending Liverpool's Bramley-Moore Dock for two events taking place across one weekend, allowing the government's Events Research Programme (ERP) to study club environments and the spread of coronavirus. 

On the 30th April and 1st May, 3,000 people will attend the venue each day for two of DJ and producer Yousef's Circus events, with Brighton's legendary Fatboy Slim, Jayda G and The Blessed Madonna among the artists performing at the trial event.

Yousef will also play B2B with a special guest, and Hot Since 82, Jaguar, Cocoon boss and techno icon, Sven Väth, and Enzo Siragusa will also play sets across the weekend.

People who wish to attend must live within a Liverpool postcode and will be subject to rapid coronavirus testing prior to the event, as well as a second test some time after the event. 

Claire McColgan MBE, Director of Culture and Tourism in Liverpool previously told the Liverpool Echo: "Liverpool is an event city. They are a critical part of our economy, culture and community and so we are delighted to be working with partners across Government, our colleagues at University of Liverpool and a number of local venues and promoters to plan this series of pilot events.

"Our experience as the pilot city for mass testing means we have the knowledge and infrastructure in place to deliver complicated projects safely, and we really hope we can help provide the evidence needed to ensure the wider sector is able to open across the country in the coming months."
