Live Concerts Have Only ‘Small’ Impact on Spread of COVID-19, German Study Finds

For the safe return to live music, the researchers recommended proper ventilation systems that regularly exchange air, compulsory use of face masks for all concertgoers, multiple entrance and exit points and eating food in seating areas to avoid long periods of contact at snack bars.

The scientists’ findings are based on research carried out on Aug. 22 at a live music concert by singer-songwriter Tim Bendzko attended by 1,200 people at the Quarterback Immobilien Arena in Leipzig.

The controlled study, called RESTART-19, took place over 10 hours, which included bathroom and simulated food and beverage breaks. Attendees took part in a number of different social distancing scenarios, including no restrictions, checkerboard pattern seating and strict distancing of 1.5 meters (about five feet).
