Over half of triple j listeners say they would attend a concert without a COVID19 vaccine

Friday 01 May, 2020

Over half of triple j listeners say they are likely to attend a live music event even before a vaccine for COVID-19 exists.

The poll found that almost six in ten (57%) of the 1500 listeners who responded to the survey were comfortable in attending a music festival before scientists discover a vaccine.

The poll was hosted through the triple j app, and is the opposite of a recent poll by US Reuters that found that 60% of Americans are likely to avoid sports events, concerts, movies and amusement parks until a coronavirus vaccine is available, with some of the 4,000 surveyed saying they may never attend those events again.

Medical expert Dr. Norman Swan told triple j’s Lucy Smith “Social distancing is impossible at a music festival. You are in close contact with other people and it only takes a few people to be infected for that to spread, and if you’ve got one super spreader in there, you’re stuffed. It’s high risk.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation or postponement of music festival and tours such as Splendour In The Grass, Groovin The Moo, Download and Bluesfest.
