North Shields performer Sam Fender performed a home-town gig at Newcastle’s Gosforth Park in front of 2,500 fans who sat in sectioned-off areas.
Groups had their own viewing platforms – all two metres apart – with a table, chairs and their own food and drinks. And here are some videos. Let us know would you like to attend a venue like this?
