- The promoter will host two events, on April 30th and May 1st, at Bramley-Moore Dock Warehouse.
Yousef's club night Circus has been selected for the UK government's Covid-19 Event Research Programme (ERP).
Last month, Liverpool was chosen to host a range of pilot events across April and May. Circus will oversee the clubbing experiment, with two 3,000-capacity parties scheduled for April 30th and May 1st at Bramley-Moore Dock Warehouse. These will be ticketed events and guests must live in the Liverpool area. Yousef is the only artist confirmed so far.
The aim is to determine the safety of club nights as the UK prepares to emerge from the pandemic. Attendees will be required to show a negative Covid-19 result to gain entry, and will be tested again afterwards to monitor any potential transmission.
For more information on the pilots, including the other events selected, read this comprehensive rundown in the Liverpool Express.
Clubbing is currently scheduled to return in full on June 21st, according to the government's roadmap. This, however, is subject to change. Yesterday, April 6th, prime minister Boris Johnson confirmed that pubs, shops and restaurants will reopen on April 12th in line with Stage 2 of the roadmap.
