2020 is one of the years that today’s generations are going to remember forever. Things are not different when we talk about the entire world. Indeed, people around the world are different. They have different languages, mentalities, cultures, and other things. However, it seems that the worldwide population often has common problems. One of the common problems we all had in the previous year is fighting against the invisible enemy.
Coronavirus messed up the plans of many people. Of course, we do not want to say the battle is over. We will all have to respect the rules that medical experts determine. However, together with vaccines, there is a big chance things will get back to normal sooner or later.
Despite health, the entire world has also faced many economical problems. We are not even sure how things are going to function in the future. Tourism is one of the business fields that suffered the most. The owners of touristic agencies could not organize trips for people because of the lockdowns. Despite that, many restaurants and hotels stopped working because of the new way of living. However, we also can’t neglect the influence Corona Virus has on musicians.
Seeing thousands of peoples in one place was impossible. The musicians couldn’t organize concerts, festivals, and other stuff. Of course, that made all the musicians look for alternative ways to make money until the pandemic ends.
However, the music lovers couldn’t enjoy some beautiful moments as well. They are barely waiting for everything to ends. The question is – how are music festivals going to look like after the pandemic. Answering that question is impossible without in-depth analysis.
Of course, it would be unfair to say that nothing is happening in the music industry. You can, for instance, get familiar with the latest news on the websites like vocalbop.com. The news that you can see there can be motivational for all music lovers. They can see that something is happening at least. Yet, you won’t find the answer you are looking for there. That is the reason why we would like to analyze the subject a bit more.
1. Things Won’t Get Back to Normal Immediately
Physical distance (or social distance how some people name it) standards will remain active. As we said, the vaccine is the sign that things will, sooner or later, get back to normal. However, that doesn’t mean you can expect festivals to be organized during February. Of course, some countries declared the end of the pandemic. However, the number of those countries is relatively small.
Some people would travel to those countries without any doubt. However, keep in mind, that most of them require a 14-day quarantine as well. Because of that, you will have to spend around 16 days going to a single festival. We are sure that is not something many people could afford.
The pandemic rules won’t disappear at once. We are sure things will slowly start getting back to normal. For instance, some countries will slowly start to change the working hours of cafes, restaurants, etc. That may not directly affective the festival organization. However, it can be a good sign for music lovers that things are going in the right direction.
2. Fewer People Can Attend the Festivals
It doesn’t matter which music festival you like to visit every year. There is a big chance thousands of people are going to be there. However, something like that is not going to happen this year. The organizers of the festivals will probably reduce the number of tickets they sell each year. In that way, they will try to ensure the social distance that many governments are requiring.
That is the reason why people need to react promptly. You will manage to see some music festivals are releasing the tickets on their official websites. However, no one guarantees they will manage to reach the goals they have. That is the reason why it would be better to purchase the ticket as soon as possible. No one knows precisely how things are going to change in the future period. Because of that, it is better to ensure yourself, and wait to see what is going to happen. If the organizers cancel the festival, you will get your money back.
3. The Price of Tickets Will Probably Jump
Here comes the bad news for many music lovers. Of course, we can’t guarantee something like that will happen. However, the prices of the tickets will probably jump. The organizers of the music festivals missed one year, and they have to find a way to get back at least some part of that money. Despite that, the number of tickets they can potentially sell is also going to be lower than usual. Because of these insights, we believe the tickets will be a bit more expensive than before.
Despite that, keep in mind what we said about hotels, cafes, restaurants, etc. People that work in these industries are also struggling with money. Renting a hotel room is also going to be a bit more expensive. Because of that, we recommend you start saving money while waiting to see what will happen in the future. Imagine that everything gets back to normal, but you don’t have enough money to attend the music festival. You will probably become even more nervous because of that.
4. Festival Live Streaming Will Remain Popular
No one says there is no place where you can enjoy the music you love. Musicians are looking for ways to work and earn at least some money. That is the reason why they will record themselves online and live stream the concerts. Of course, some of them are going to do that for free as well. Their only goal is to remind people they exist. Despite that, they also decided to use the time people spend online to promote themselves.
Festival live streaming will remain popular in the next couple of months. We know that is not the most attractive option for most people. However, you will have to be patient until we defeat the invisible enemy. Hopefully, something like that will happen by the end of this year.
