KEEPING YOU SAFE THIS SUMMER

music sounds better with you

Founded all the way back in 2013, Blackpool Rocks has always been successful in bringing big name artists to the seaside town. From Martin Garrix to The 1975, not forgetting Craig David, Disclosure and Duke Dumont, the list is huge but if one thing is guaranteed it is a good time. Hosted at the famous Winter Gardens, this brilliant venue has always allowed Blackpool Rocks to cover an array of music genres with multiple rooms to suit all audiences.

2021 feels like the perfect year to bring Blackpool Rocks back to the Winter Gardens, after everyone spent such a long time indoors with no live music, dancing or DJs Blackpool Rocks will be the best way to celebrate freedom with guaranteed amazing headline acts. The track record of Artists speaks for itself; Oliver Heldens, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Disciples, Claptone and shadow child.

We can’t wait to welcome you all back to the Winter Gardens this Summer for the first big party of the year!

  • Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the event

If you are resident in England, you can show your status easily via the NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App. For more information on how to do this, please click here.

We recommend that you screenshot or download a copy of your NHS COVID Pass prior to arrival so that you have it ready to show at the entry gates. Alternatively, you can print a copy and bring this with you.

If you don’t have access to a smartphone or computer, then you can call 119 to request a letter to demonstrate your vaccination status or online here. Please note that the letter can take up to 5 working days to reach you. This letter will be sent to the address registered with your GP.

If you cannot access your NHS COVID Pass or if you do not receive a vaccination status letter in time you will need to provide evidence of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test, by reporting the result here and presenting your NHS email or text notification at the entry gates.

If you live in Scotland, you can obtain your full vaccination status here.

If you do not receive the letter in time, you will need to provide evidence of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test, by reporting the result here and presenting your NHS email or text notification at the entry gates.

Once you have taken your test, you will need to report your result on the NHS website here. You will receive a text or email notification confirming your negative test result, to present on entry.

A positive result from an NHS Lateral Flow Test means it’s likely you had coronavirus when the test was done. You and anyone you live with must not attend the festival and self-isolate immediately. You are then advised to get a PCR test to confirm your result as soon as possible.

If you are using an NHS Lateral Flow Test to demonstrate your COVID Status, this will remain valid for 48 hours from the time you took the test. You will then need to re-test on the expiry of the initial 48 hour period.

If you are attending multiple concerts, when you return you will be required to demonstrate your valid COVID Status. Please ensure that you upload your re-test to the NHS website.

The wearing of Face Masks at the event is NOT mandatory, however customers are mindful to carry out their own risk assessment when considering if they should wear one. For example you may wish to wear a mask when in areas of the festival or event where the crowd is more dense or in queues.

A small bottle of hand sanitiser, no more than 100ml in volume, per person, is permitted into the event.
