Starting this month (April 15), indoor and outdoor music venues are reopening in California, and will supposedly be fully open by the summer if all goes according to plan.

After the dark year we have had there seem to be signs of light at the end of the tunnel with more and more vaccinations taking place. Starting this month (April 15), indoor and outdoor music venues are reopening in California, and will supposedly be fully open by the summer if all goes according to plan. Governor Gavin Newsom announced this exciting news on April 7. The mask mandate will still be in place and there will be a limited capacity. To attend these events you will either need to show proof of vaccination or get tested for coronavirus. Ticket purchases will have to be made in advance and attendance is limited to in state visitors. The amount of people in the audience depends on which tier each county is in. The purple tier is restricted from having these gatherings, the red tier can have a 10% capacity for venues up to 1,500 people and 20% for venues greater than that. This is about 100-750 based on size. The capacity increases within the rest of the tiers. About nineteen million have received at least one dose of the vaccine in California, and over six million are fully vaccinated.
