Catalonia prepares the de-escalation amid the confusion over the opening of concert halls

Catalonia is preparing for the de-escalation and it does so amid the confusion over the opening of concert halls, which the Catalan Government announced for Monday but was expressly prohibited today in the DOGC, which has forced the Executive to rectify and announce that they will be able to open as planned.

After the publication in the Official Gazette of the Generalitat of Catalonia (DOGC) of the measures that prohibited live music from resuming its activities, despite the fact that the Government announced otherwise last Thursday, there have been a few hours of tension in those that the concert hall sector has expressed its discomfort over that decision.

The alarms in the music sector have jumped this noon after the publication in the DOGC of the resolution of the de-escalation plan, which allows bars and restaurants to open as of next week, with a capacity limit and until 9:30 p.m., but prohibits leaving the municipality to attend cultural events and open concert halls.

Through Twitter, the Association of Concert Halls of Catalonia (ASACC) has stated that if what has been published today is not an error and is not rectified throughout the day, “it will be the most shameful action of the Government, leaving concert halls and grassroots culture abandoned ”.

“The concert halls are still ignored, the concert halls are still closed,” has denounced this entity, which groups concert halls such as Razzmatazz, Apolo, Bikini, Sidecar, Salamandra, La Mirona, Jazz Cava, Barts or L’Oncle Jack.

The Government has confirmed that, indeed, the publication of this resolution in the DOGC is due to an “error” and that to correct it before Monday a modification of it will be published.
