Tramlines festival set to be biggest music event in Europe post Covid


T

ramlines Festival has been given the green light, making it the biggest music event in Europe since coronavirus.

Music lovers are set to flock to the event in Sheffield which takes place at Hillsborough Park from July 23 to 25.

The Streets, Royal Blood and Richard Ashcroft will headline a world-class lineup of music and culture in a landmark weekend for the city.

It will join the third phase of the Government’s Events Research Programme, allowing the sold-out festival to take place at full capacity.

It means the festival can go ahead independently of national reopening dates and fans will be able to enjoy the event without social distancing or masks.

Tramlines operations director Timm Cleasby: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to confirm that Tramlines 2021 is going ahead.

“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.”

Ticket holders, except children under 11, will be asked for either:

  • Proof of a negative Covid result from a lateral flow test taken with the past 48 hours
  • Two vaccine doses, with the second received at least 14 days before

Sheffield director of Public Health Greg Fell said: “Helping cultural events to be staged safely is an essential part of our return to life where we can freely enjoy the things we love, and the findings so far have shown positive outcomes that allow us to take these next steps towards normality.”

Public Health are working closely with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to support the event.

In the lead up, ticket holders are advised to get vaccinated and follow Covid guidelines.

Culture Minister Caroline Dinenage said: “I know how desperately people want to get back to festivals, which is why they’re a hugely important part of our Events Research Programme.
