The cabinet last week extended the ban on gatherings of more than 500 people at entertainment events to beyond August 15.
The restrictions will have a very severe impact on the sector in the medium and long terms, said Márta.

The festival industry employs about 37,000 people directly and 370,000 indirectly, Márta added.
