The summary proceedings that ID&T had filed against the government will not take place on Friday.

The festival organizer will first continue talks with the cabinet.

If no solutions are found, the case will still be continued.

In Wednesday's parliamentary debate, healthcare minister Hugo de Jonge proposed to enter into discussions with the industry.

The Alliance of Event Builders and Fieldlab, of which ID&T is a part, have agreed to this.

The various parties will discuss how multi-day events can continue safely with 100 percent of capacity and without 1.5 meters away.

The sector wants clear conditions for the continuation of events and a more concrete form of the guarantee.

In addition, the event industry requires a watertight system from Testing for Access as soon as possible.

Multi-day events prohibited until 13 August

Under pressure from summary proceedings, ID&T and now more than forty affiliated organizations of festivals and events want to save the festival summer.

They disagree with the cabinet's decision to ban public events where visitors do not have a permanent seat as a result of the increasing number of corona infections.

Multi-day events may also not be held until 13 August.

Earlier this week, organizers called the decision "carelessly prepared and incorrect".

Based on the results of the Field Labs, events should be able to be organized in a safe manner, they stated.

The organizations that joined ID&T include those of Paaspop, Apenkooi, Zwarte Cross, F1 Dutch Grand Prix Zandvoort and Het Amsterdams Verbond.
