A recent survey carried out by music festival marketplace Festicket has concluded that the demand for live events post-coronavirus is high, with over 80% of 110,000 festivalgoers surveyed saying they would attend an event within six months of lockdown being lifted.
A third of respondents, which include music fans in the UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands, say they would feel confident and safe to attend a festival “immediately” after lockdown measures are lifted. A further 35% said that they would return to events between two to three months after measures are eased. Meanwhile, an additional 16% would attend events within six months of lockdown being lifted.
Most festivalgoers also shows high hopes for next year, with over three quarters saying they would feel confident booking tickets for next year within the next two months.
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.”
