    The event was held on July 3 and 4 and neither the use of masks nor social distancing was required. As other cities have already done, it was part of an experiment to rethink the safe return to this type of event. Thus, in order to attend, they demanded either to be vaccinated, or to have passed the virus, or to have a negative diagnostic test.

    According to the ANP news agency, on the first day at least 448 attendees were infected , while on the second there were about 516.

    The festival was held just days after the Dutch government lifted the restrictions imposed until then to control the pandemic. However, the Government has ‘backtracked’ and announced last Friday new measures that range from the closure of nightlife to the suspension of all kinds of events lasting several days. And it is that infections have increased by 500% since the measures were relaxed on June 26.

    The Netherlands is going through its highest rise in infections since last year, registering more than 10,000 new cases a day, with a special incidence among young people, according to the authorities. A figure that returns them to the thresholds set by the pandemic in the country in December and that confirms the end of the downward trend that they had been registering in recent weeks.
