British firms present tech to get crowds back to live events | Music Ally

An initiative from a group of British companies is hoping to combine Covid-19 testing and other technology to help bring music concerts back.

Led by a company called VST Enterprises, it’s described as an “end to end rapid covid testing, health passport and contact tracing app solution” that will “allow for the safe return of fans to sports stadiums, music venues and theatres to full capacity without the need for social distancing”.

The group, which also includes sports firm Redstrike, event safety firm Halo and health/testing provider Latus Health will require 10-minute rapid Covid-19 testing kits, digital health passports for fans, and a contract tracing app.

“If a music or sports fan or theatre-goer wants to attend an event then they will only be allowed into that venue having taken a Covid-19 test prior to their arrival and their ‘negative’ test result uploaded to a valid VHealth Passport by a qualified health care professional and scanned upon entry,” said VST boss Louis-James Davis.
