That’s why the Techno Festival in Utrecht became a superspreader event

At the two-day Verknipt Festival in Utrecht (Netherlands), techno lovers had a blast at the beginning of July: dancing as hard as it could, a relaxed atmosphere and a good mood. Almost like before Corona. Only: a few days later it becomes clear that around 1000 people were infected with the virus on the festival weekend. And that despite the strict protection concept.

The organizers comment on Facebook: “We are shocked at the number of suspected infections.” They also write that they had worked out a 45-page protection concept with the city in advance. Organizer Reza Fathi assures «Het Parool»: «We have obeyed all the rules, even more than necessary.»
