Thousands of people attended a music festival in Liverpool, England, on May 2, that was held as a pilot examining the risks of transmission of COVID-19 at public gatherings.

The festival was held in Sefton Park in south Liverpool and featured a number of acts. It was headlined by the group Blossoms.

Those in attendance did not have to wear face coverings or maintain social distancing; they had to meet a number of conditions beforehand.
