Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival is expected to continue next month at complete capacity as the third phase of the government’s pilot events program is underway.
ERP saw the audience visit events in Liverpool, the BRIT Awards and the Download Festival to investigate the safety of large crowds returning to events after the coronavirus fiasco around the globe.
Negative COVID Test Needed
The sold-out crowd will now head to Sheffield’s Hillsborough Park from July 23-25 to enjoy jam packed performances from the likes of Royal Blood, The Streets and Richard Ashcroft.
To obtain admission inside the venue, the ticket holders must show proof of a negative result of COVID test from a lateral flow test conducted 48 hours ago, or proof of complete vaccination including the second dose received at least 14 days before the first day of the festival visit.
Festival Going Ahead
Tramlines Director of Operations Timm Cleasby said: “We are very pleased to be able to ensure that Tramlines 2021 continues, as we have accepted the government’s invitation to join the Events Pilot Program.”
‘This means that we have a proven framework to follow, which in previous events has shown that the festivals like ours can be enjoyed.’
No Restrictions Inside The Festival Venue
“Once you are inside, there will be no need for social exclusion and no one will wear a mask if they do not 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.
“Big ticket sales across the industry show how eager fans are to come back to events and we want to help them reassure that we can welcome them without any vulnerability.”
