Scotland will reopen music venues from May 17

Good news for Scotland! Life seems to pick up steam in the middle of next month. Music venues and festivals in Scotland will open from 17 May.

Music venues, cinemas, theaters, clubs and festivals will be able to return to work under the following conditions: indoor spaces will host crowds of up to 100 people, provided social distancing is ensured.

Outdoor events and festivals can accommodate up to 500 people.

Next month, the plan will move to the next phase. In early June, it is planned to accommodate 200 people in indoor venues and 1000 in outdoor events.

If all goes according to plan, by the end of June these rules will be increased again to 400 people allowed indoors and 2,000 for outdoor areas.
