Israel Protests COVID-19 Lockdown With 3,000 Person Concert

Recommended Posts

Like most of the rest of the world, Israel has been on lockdown due to COVID-19 since mid-March. Like the rest of the world, this has pretty much shattered their live entertainment industry. However, yesterday, the country staged a protest against the lockdown with 3,000 people gathered in a park in Tel Aviv for an unsanctioned concert, “Behind the Scenes: an Assembly of Solidarity.”

The event featured a dozen prominent Israeli artists performing on a large stage.

According to Consequence of Sound, “In order to stage such a large-scale mass gathering, organizers of the event exploited a loophole in Israel’s health regulations allowing for contained protests. Upon entering the park, attendees were asked to wear a face mask and keep six feet apart. Those social-distancing practices were quickly disregarded, however, as video and photos from the event show many people, without face masks, dancing in close proximity.”

To date, Israel has 16,680 reported cases of COVID-19 and 279 confirmed deaths. It remains to be seen how yesterday’s gathering will impact those numbers.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
