Tramlines: Supergrass replace Richard Ashcroft as headliner

THEY are young (ish), run green and keep their teeth nice and clean — Supergrass have been announced as the new Sunday headliner at this year's Tramlines festival.

The 'Alright' hitmakers have replaced Richard Ashcroft, who announced on Twitter that he had pulled out of the festival after it became part of the government's pilot events programme.

The singer said he didn't want to play concerts with "restrictions" in place. Festival-goers will be asked to show either a negative coronavirus test or proof of having had two doses of the vaccine.

The Streets, Royal Blood, Dizzee Rascal and Blossoms are among the acts performing to a sold-out Hillsborough Park between July 23 to 25.

The final batch of weekend and day tickets will be available on Friday at noon as part of the resale and will only be available to those signed up to the waiting list.

Ticket holders who specifically purchased a ticket to see Richard Ashcroft will be able to request a face-value refund by emailing customerservices.gigantic.com by noon tomorrow. You will need to include your booking reference number and the date that you purchased your ticket..
