The judge will rule next Friday in summary proceedings that the events sector has filed against the State about the latest corona measures.

Twenty organizations demanded in court in The Hague on Friday that all events and club nights from September 25, when the new measures take effect, be allowed again without restrictions on time and capacity.

Unmute Us, Apenkooi Events, ID&T and MOJO, among others, took the Dutch state to court, with the support of the Alliance of Event Builders and the Association of Event Makers.

"The event industry is stunned by the way the cabinet is dealing with young people and the people and companies who work in this industry," said Unmute Us in the run-up to the preliminary injunction proceedings.

The lawsuit was announced last week a day after the press conference of outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and outgoing Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health).

During the preliminary injunction proceedings, the organizations also referred to the Fieldlab results, which showed that events can take place if the corona pass is used.

The midnight closure of catering and clubs is seen as "an arbitrary and unsubstantiated decision".
