Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews says the Melbourne Cup will be able to host 10,000 people as part of a vaccinated economy trial in Melbourne.

“The Melbourne Cup crowd is a guaranteed crowd, it’s part of a trial,” he said.

“We would hope we have then, by that stage, passed 80 per cent double dosed and we can at that point confirm that the last two events of the carnival, the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Oaks Day and Stakes Day, will also have crowds of up to 10,000 people.”

Mr Andrews said there will also be a live music event at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on October 30 with several thousand fully vaccinated people in attendance.
