  • Live music returned to the birthplace of The Beatles after a long coronavirus-enforced silence on Sunday when the English city of Liverpool hosted a one-off music festival to test whether such events spread the virus.
  • Around 5,000 people ditched face coverings and social distancing rules in the name of science and music.
  • They attended the outdoor event having tested negative for Covid-19, and promised to get themselves tested again five days after the festival.
