Tramlines 2020 will no longer be taking place

08 May 2020

Organisers of Sheffield's Tramlines Music Festival have announced that the event will not be taking place as planned in July this year. Like many major mass participation events, Tramlines has had to cancel as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, but the festival is planned to return 23 - 25 July in 2021. Read the festival’s official statement below. 

Official statement from Tramlines

Firstly, we want to share a heartfelt thank you from the whole team for your patience and messages of support while we work through this difficult situation, it really does mean the world to us.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to offer our thanks for the continued dedication and hard work of all the NHS teams, key workers and volunteers in trying to combat this horrible pandemic.

We would like to assure you that we have delved into all possible options to try and make this year’s Tramlines possible. However, unfortunately, after a full review with the relevant local authorities; and in the best interests and safety of our festival-goers, artists, staff, suppliers and the emergency services; we are truly sorry and heartbroken to confirm that Tramlines Festival will not be able to take place this year.

Looking forward, Tramlines will now take place on the 23rd – 25th July 2021.

After taking into account your feedback, we’re pleased to confirm that tickets and upgrades for this year’s festival will automatically be rolled over to 2021. We’d love to see you at next year’s festival, so if you want to attend, no further action is required.

If, for any reason at all, you’re not able to join us for the new dates, you’ll be able to claim a refund on your entry tickets and upgrades. We’re working closely with our ticketing partners and they will be in touch with instructions on the next steps within 7 days.
We would like to thank you once again for continuing to support Tramlines and want to assure you we’re now putting everything into planning the best festival ever. Tramlines would be absolutely nothing without you and we can’t wait to see you in July 2021.

For now, keep safe, keep healthy and look after each other.
