Busselton music festival to use rotating main stage to be COVIDSafe
The upcoming Good Day Sunshine festival in the Western Australian city of Busselton is to use a rotating main stage in what is considered a world first format to lower the risk of spreading Coronavirus among audiences at a live music event.
With a total capacity of 5000 people, the festival will be split into four sections, with each quadrant having a maximum capacity of 1250 people.
In the centre will be a rotating main stage called ‘The Turntable’.
The quadrants, each named after well-known local surfing spots, will have their own bars, food stalls and facilities, making it easier for patrons to adhere to the current one person per two-square-metre rule.
Introducing the concept, Macro Music Chief Executive, Ross Macpherson said the local Council, Western Australian Police, health and various other stakeholders “have been incredibly supportive of our ideas”.
Macpherson went on to advise “we will be monitoring the situation, and we are in constant contact with the relevant stakeholders.
“Should the situation in WA change, we will work to whatever guidelines are needed. The health and safety of our patrons and the state of WA are our top priority.
“I would be flattered if this format was to be used by other events in Australia and across the world.
“The sooner we can get large scale live events back up and running, the better for everyone.”
Good Day Sunshine will take place at Busselton’s Barnard Park on 31st October.
