24th November 2019. That was the last time I was at a live event. As the last bars of Seadog by Clanger drifted across the sound system at District8 and the cheers of appreciation for Sasha & Digweed filled the night, not one person in the room could have predicted what was only a couple of short months away.
As of May 2021, things seem to be finally moving in the right direction as we move into a living with COVID-19 phase, and it feels like there is a renewed sense of optimism for the dance music industry. Liverpool has just recently hosted a test event (Check out the video below for some more info); the Mambo sign has been put out for a new season, and slowly, details of events later in 2021 are starting to be announced.
