In a co-organization between the Municipality of Coimbra, APEFE – Association of Promoters of Shows, Festivals and Events, APORFEST – Portuguese Association of Music Festivals and APSTE – Portuguese Association of Technical Services for Events, in partnership with the Portuguese Red Cross, to Roche and WiseSafety, the main objective is to obtain clinical studies by health authorities that allow the increase in the capacity of concert halls and the viability of major events, such as festivals or festivals in the city.
This pilot test event in Praça da Canção will have a preparation for a standing audience of 1,000 people, divided into groups of 250, in which the use of the mask and the presentation of the rapid negative antigen test performed on the day of the show is mandatory.
Tickets, available on April 30th at Ticketline, have a cost of 2€ – with test included -, in which the revenue will revert to União Audiovisual. The purchase of these is concluded by scheduling a Rapid Antigen Test (for collection of nasopharyngeal exudate), carried out on May 8 starting at 10 am, by the Portuguese Red Cross, in Praça da Canção.
