The Festival Will Take Place At Full Capacity!

Tramlines 2021 has been selected to be a part of the Events Research Programme!

Tramlines Festival 2021 has announced that it will join the third phase of the Government’s Events Research Programme, allowing the sold-out music festival at Hillsborough Park to take place at full capacity on 23rdto 25th July, at Sheffield’s Hillsborough Park. Tramlines’ participation in the programme means the festival can go ahead independently of national reopening dates and the audience will be able to enjoy the event without compulsory social distancing or masks.

At the entrance to the festival, ticket holders (except children under 11) will be asked for proof of EITHER:

  • A negative COVID result from a lateral flow test taken within the previous 48 hours.
  • Two vaccination doses, with the second received at least 14 days before

Speaking on the matter, Tramlines’ Operations Director, Timm Cleasby said;

We are absolutely delighted to be able to confirm that Tramlines 2021 is going ahead, having accepted the government’s invitation to join the Events Research Programme. This means we have a proven framework to follow, which at previous events has shown that festivals can be enjoyed at no more risk than other activities. Once inside, there will be no need for social distancing and no one will have to wear a mask if they don’t want to.

 We would like to express our solidarity with those festivals which have not been able to go ahead this year and those which are still seeking clarity. It is very important to us that clear guidance is made available quickly to the entire event community so that as many festivals as possible can go ahead with confidence this summer. Huge ticket sales across the sector show how keen fans are to come to our events and we want to help reassure them that we can welcome them back safely.

All ticket holders will be contacted by Tramlines’ event ticketing partner Gigantic via email by Thursday 1st July with further details. Ahead of the event, ticket holders will also be emailed to provide contact information for themselves and anyone they have bought tickets for. Anyone who has purchased a ticket but does not wish to take part will be able to roll over their ticket to Tramlines 2022 at no extra cost or receive a refund for the face value of their ticket.
