Despite the ongoing pandemic, a handful of artists are attempting to move forward with business as usual. Over the holiday weekend, DaBaby, Stunna 4 Vegas, Blac Youngsta and Moneybagg Yo performed at Cosmopolitan Premier Lounge in Dectaur, Georgia.
In order to combat the virus, the venue capped attendance at 1,600 attendees. Fans were also required to wear masks to get inside. Moreover, attendees were subject to temperature checks and health screening questions.
On stage, performers were prohibited from having more than a few people on stage at a time. In addition, performers were not allowed to have contact with the crowd.
