COVID-Free Since April, This Island Gets to Hold Its Music Festival Today, Normally

It’s one of the longest-running music festivals and possibly the only one in Britain going ahead this holiday weekend, owing to the island being coronavirus-free since the end of April. Internationally-known for its famous cow with creamy milk, Guernsey is an island where the last detected case of the COVID-19 virus was recorded more than 100 days ago, so no social-distancing measures will be required at this festival. In the shadow of a 600-year-old castle on Guernsey, up to 3000 islanders are gathering for the 44th Vale Earth Fair—and the 12-hour music festival might be the biggest one yet.
