Tramlines 2021 response to roadmap announcement
With the UK government’s roadmap this week stating that ‘larger events’ will be able to go ahead from 21 June, many Sheffielders were quick to point out that this could mean a return for the city’s annual Tramlines Festival.
The event is currently scheduled this year for 23-25 July, and with the organisers of larger festivals such as Leeds & Reading announcing yesterday an intention to go ahead with their August dates, it’s looking fairly likely that Tramlines could be following suit.
We contacted the Tramlines team and received the following response:
“We’re processing the same news as you with regards to the roadmap. Tramlines are as keen as everyone for the event to go ahead and are currently busy behind the scenes preparing to welcome you all for that much-needed party at Hillsborough Park in July.”
“That said, we don’t yet have any concrete plans with regards to the 2021 festival. The safety of ticket holders and staff is at the forefront of the planning process for any event and must first be ensured for it to go ahead.”
“Rest assured, if we aren’t able to go ahead, all ticket holders will be able to rollover to Tramlines 2022 or given the opportunity to claim a refund. Thanks for your patience as we work through it.”
Once a final decision has been reached, we’re assured that the announcement will be made ASAP and communicated through the official channels at tramlines.org.uk.
Fingers crossed, eh?
