Abiding by The Rules
Peace Train will incorporate some changes compared to previous years because of the coronavirus pandemic. This includes a shorter lineup which consists of homegrown artists instead of international ones. The festival will also be held for only two days instead of four, and will enforce social distancing rules.
The organizers of the said event could not help but use humor when asked about the social distancing measures in place, suggesting that people can use sombrero hats and hula hoops.
In the first year of the festival in 2018, it was attended by more than 12,000 people. But now that large-scale events are highly discouraged, the crowd is expected to significantly decrease to just 3,000 to 4,000 participants.
According to the Head of Content and Operations Cecilia Soojeong Yi, “we will check for fevers and symptoms, and we’ll have a test booth during the festival,” adding that they will be obsessive about disinfection.
