Club Reopening Update: How to build more flexible innovative dance floors?

Across the globe dance floors are reopening, albeit in different formats to the way we remember. Today the second instalment of the Global Nighttime Recovery Plan is launched with a focus on:

  • Creative businesses model pivots to maintain revenue while the clubbing experience is impossible
  • Responsible virus transmission mitigation tactics to make clubbing safe and enjoyable for patrons, staff and surrounding residents
  • Innovative VR experiments to strengthen the nightlife community and test digital boundaries
  • An equality framework tool to aid venues and promoters in analysing and improving their inclusivity during the pandemic and beyond

The impossibility of sharing physical dance floors has fostered experimentation, and forced the development of complementary activities and alternatives to stay alive, raise awareness, encourage conversation, build networks and collaborations among artists and venues.
