    ◎根據政府的計劃,西班牙的場館可能會在5月重新開放,但容納人流減少和其他限制可能會讓活動主辦方頭痛。
    ◎根據政府最近宣布的計劃,西班牙的音樂會最早可能會在五月舉行,但是嚴格的人數限制,以及與會人員之間所需距離的缺乏澄清,可能會使現場活動的重新開啟變得複雜。
    ◎西班牙總理(PedroSánchez)宣布的計劃,該國分四個階段重新開放,從籌備階段開始,該階段將持續到5月11日,每個階段的持續時間至少為兩週。在計劃的下一階段實施之前,將對該國每個省的情況進行重新評估,該國不同地區的進度可能會有所不同。
    ◎西班牙第一階段(從5月11日開始),將允許文化活動恢復進行,室內活動場所通常最多可容納30人,戶外活動最多可容納200人。第二階段(可能最早於5月25日開始),室內音樂會將以正常容量的三分之一重新開放,最多可容納50人。戶外活動最多可容納400人,所有人都應保持必要的距離。第二階段還將以三分之一的產能,重新開放電影院和劇院。該計劃的最後階段定於6月8日開始,屆時夜總會和酒吧將以正常容量的三分之一重新開放。室內活動的上限為80人,戶外活動最多800人。
    ◎對於政府的計畫,西班牙的現場音樂行業人士認為,以最大容量的三分之一重新開放不可行,對業界造成的傷害大於幫助。另外,「安全距離」為多少也需要釐清,以了解需要提供什麼樣的安全措施。

    Venues in Spain may be able to reopen in May under the government’s exit plan, yet capacity reductions and other restrictions could prove a headache for organisers
    Concerts could resume in Spain as early as May following the government’s recently announced exit plan, but strict capacity limitations and a lack of clarification around required distance between attendees could complicate the live business’ reopening.
    The plan laid out by Spanish prime minister Pedro Sánchez yesterday (28 April) sees the country reopening in four stages, starting from the preparatory phase zero, which will last until 11 May.
    Each phase will have a duration of two weeks as a minimum. The situation in each province of the country will be re-evaluated before the implementation the next stage of the plan, with different regions of the country possibly proceeding at different rates.
    In phase one – beginning on 11 May – “cultural events” will be allowed to resume, with a maximum capacity of 30 people for indoor venues that usually have a capacity of 90 or more, and of 200 for open-air events. All outdoor events must be seated, with social distancing rules applied.
    In phase two, which could begin as early as 25 May, indoor concerts will reopen at a third of their usual capacity, with a maximum capacity of 50 people. Seated, open-air events will be permitted for up to 400 people, with all punters maintaining the “necessary distance”.
    Phase two will also see the reopening of cinemas and theatres at a third of capacity.
    The final, “advanced” stage of the plan, set to start from 8 June, sees the reopening of night clubs and bars at a third of usual capacity. Indoor events will have a capacity limit of 80, still operating at 33% of normal size, and outdoor events of up to 800 people will be allowed.
    “THE WAY IT HAS BEEN PRESENTED ALMOST HURTS US MORE THAN HELPS BECAUSE VERY FEW, IF ANY, EVENTS WILL BE ABLE TO COMPLY”
    The exit strategy may not come as welcome news to all in the concert business, however, with members of Spain’s live industry deeming plans to reopen at a third of maximum capacity “unviable” for business.
    “It is still very unclear,” Chris Ortiz, director of international booking at Córdoba-based Riff Productions, tells IQ. “Honestly, the way it has been presented almost hurts us more than helps because very few, if any, events will be able to comply.”
    Ortiz refers to the mention of maintaining a “safe distance” between those attending an event which, in one instance, is put at nine square metres per person. “We are trying to get a clearer idea of what kind of safety measures we would need to provide for this capacity.”
    Ortiz also states that no information has been given as to when larger events such as festivals can be held again, preventing cancellation due to force majeure.
    Earlier this week, the Spanish Association of Music Festivals (Asociación de Festivales de Música – FMA) warned that, without government support, festivals in Spain were set to be at a “clear disadvantage” to their European neighbours.
    “This is not good news because most of the promoters will not be able to do their events,” a spokesperson from Spanish promoters’ association APM tells IQ. “In reality, these capacity reductions cannot be applied, because the events were planned with all expenses and income already calculated before the state of alarm was implemented.

    “Massive events (both festivals and concerts) are not even contemplated by the government. They just refer to concerts of 800 spectators maximum. The drop of more than 95% in ticket sales in the last two months makes these measures even more unviable.”
    IQ will update this article with more industry reactions as we receive them.
