“It’s a cool concept. I like the idea that we have our own space, we’re obviously around people, but not too close because of COVID and everything, ”said Tatiana Miamo.
“We’re very excited to be back at concerts,” added Jazmine, another concert-goer.
Last week the Centers for Disease Control released new guidelines for vaccinated individuals stating they do not need to wear a mask when walking, running, and biking outdoors or at small outdoor events. It is said that a mask is still required for large gatherings like concerts. Although many did not wear masks at the Triller Festival, they said they still felt safe because of the social distance that is implemented.
“Outside, separated between parties, each in their own group, it’s safe, so it’s a fine day, the sun, the ocean breeze, it should be fine,” said Rick Gonzalez.
