The communities minister has สล็อตออนไลน์ said she is hopeful live music can resume in Northern Ireland before the end of June.
Deirdre Hargey said she is looking at an indicative date of 21 June.
That date needs to be approved during a review of Covid-19 restrictions by Stormont ministers next week.
Ms Hargey also said she hoped the 500-person cap on outdoor gatherings can be removed and replaced with risk assessments.
No live music is permitted in pubs and clubs under current Covid-19 regulations.
Arts, music, culture and heritage has been hit hard by the pandemic, with many venues closed to audiences since March 2020.
Risk assessments are being used to determine capacity for venues hosting weddings, funerals and outdoor gatherings for fewer than 500 people but more than 30.
Ms Hargey told BBC's Evening Extra programme that the indicative 21 June date is "predicated on the health advice, so I'm working that we can have live music back in venues as soon as possible".
She added that indoor events would "maintain a level of social distancing" but that she was "hopeful that we can look at the cap as part of this for outdoor gatherings".
"I am looking as part of this package of relaxations, if the health advice allows it, that we can lift that cap as well."
