'Herd immunity music festival' to take place in July, against the advice of medical experts


The world's first "herd immunity festival" is set to take place next month, going against the advice of medical experts.

Music events worldwide have been cancelled to limit the spread of coronavirus, but the three-day-long festival in Ringle, Wisconsin in the US plans to go ahead in July.

Included among the Herd Immunity Fest performers are artists such as Static-X, Nonpoint, Dope, Bobaflex, and Royal Bliss.

Described as a "mini-fest", the event will take place outdoors at the Q&Z Expo Centre. Promotion for the event makes no mention of social distancing measures.

On Facebook, one of the event's organisers wrote: "When the lockdown first happened, my first thought was OK we can all do 2 weeks, then it went on and on, things were getting cancelled, I started to worry about people not only for this Covid but mental, physical, financial.
