ISLAMABAD – The 2021 Brit Awards will mark the first major indoor music event in over a year as bosses prepare to release 2,500 free tickets to key workers. In an announcement, it was revealed that The Brit Awards will take place in front of a live audience of 4,000 people at London’s The O2 on 11 May – six days before the next phase of lockdown lifts. The ceremony, which will be broadcast live on ITV and hosted by Jack Whitehall, will celebrate the return to live music and nominee Dua Lipa has promised those attending that it will ‘be a night to remember’.
The indoor ceremony and live show will form part of the Government’s scientific Events Research Programme, and it will use enhanced testing approaches to examine how events can take place without the need for social distancing after all restrictions are lifted on June 21. Working closely with the Government to adhere to safety guidelines, this means The BRITs, will be the first live music show at The O2 in over a year, with 4,000 tickets being up for grabs- just one fifth of the venue’s 20,000 capacity.The BRITs will play an important role in paving the way for the return of live music at scale as the UK emerges from the past year’s restrictions.
