Concert organizers in St. Petersburg are required to inform the number and age of spectators at events in the institution’s hall. Such demands were made by the city’s cultural committee.
The department explained that this was necessary due to the fact that, from December 4, access to events in theaters and other performing arts organizations was restricted to under-16s.
In addition, city authorities recalled the restrictions on hall occupancy from the same date – it can be no more than 25 percent. However, the final number of spectators that can be admitted to the event will be determined by the committee’s decision.
Earlier in December, the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg was fined after a speech by Basta, where security measures were not followed. The rapper himself stated that the events were being held taking into account all the requirements of the authorities that were applicable at that time.
