Tribfest 2020 rescheduled to 2021

In light of the most recent update given by the government we have decided to bring this announcement forward to avoid any confusion.

It is with very heavy hearts that we write this message. Tribfest 2020 will not be able to take place this year. We have explored lots of options but in order to keep you, the artists, our staff, suppliers and emergency services all safe we will not be able to go ahead with the festival this summer.

Looking forward, Tribfest will now take place on Thursday 19th August (Early Entry) / Friday 20th August – Sunday 22nd August 2021.

We’re pleased to confirm that all tickets bought for this year’s festival will automatically be rolled over to 2021. Don’t worry; the barcodes will be valid for 2021 even though it will say the old date on the ticket. 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 tickets. We’re working closely with our ticketing partners (Tixel & Eventbrite) and will be in touch with instructions via an email from Tixel on Monday 29th June. As previously mentioned in our past statement we would ask you if possible to retain your tickets to ensure that Tribfest can continue in the coming years.

We have decided to continue the 20% discount offer on all weekend tickets for Tribfest 2021 until midnight on 31st August 2020, as we know that some people have suffered financially due to the pandemic. Simply enter ‘SUMMER20’ in the promotional code box before you pay for your tickets to claim this discount. Please note that there will be no further discounts after this for Tribfest 2021 tickets.

We want to send a huge thank you to everyone for your patience, understanding and messages of support in this difficult time. We promise that we will work our socks off to make 2021 the most amazing Tribfest ever. Tribfest would be nothing without you all and we can’t wait to see you back at Sledmere House in 2021.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to send love and thanks to all the NHS staff and key workers who have been working constantly to help us all navigate this horrible pandemic.

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

We have a secret 🤫

Last year we loved the secret gig and got so much great feedback from you all that we thought we’d do it again! The act that we have lined up for you is the perfect Sunday morning antidote, we can’t wait.
It will be just what you will need at the beginning of your last day of the best weekend.
Who do you think it is??? We might give you some clues soon…

Have you got soul?

We hope so because local legend Steve Woomble is going to be playing you all of the best from Northern Soul, Soul and Motown – VIYNL ONLY.
Steve has famously re-birthed Northern Soul to Hull with his events packing out Hull City Hall on numerous occasions, with hundreds of people gathered to listen to the very best from Frank Wilson, Chuck Wood, Yvonne Baker and Tomangoes to name just a few.
Fancy a walk, or should I say a dance, down memory lane? Bring your best dancing shoes and you can transport yourselves back to those nostalgic nights filled with all of the best sounds from the 1960s.

Tribfest 2020 Update

  • We are still planning on going ahead with the event. However, we are consistently assessing this situation and we will make a final decision by 30th June, unless we receive direct government advice before this date.


  • We have noticed some comments on our social media spreading rumours that Sledmere Estate is closed until 2021 – this is not true. We are in constant contact with Sledmere Estate, they are adapting their business to change with the circumstance and we are all working on the same page. We all want Tribfest 2020 to go ahead if it is safe to do so.


  • If the event CAN go ahead then all tickets bought will be valid and non-refundable as per normal.


  • If the event CANNNOT go ahead all tickets bought will be valid for Tribfest 2021 or fully refundable. We would like to ask that if possible you chose the option to transfer your tickets to Tribfest 2021, if everyone chooses to refund their tickets then simply put there will be no Tribfest in 2021 or for the foreseeable future. The events industry has been hit really hard during this pandemic and any support that you can give us by choosing to transfer your tickets is really appreciated.


  • ALL TICKETS includes any ticket bought for Tribfest 2020 including our third party accommodation suppliers Festihuts, Z-I-P, Katamaka Tipi’s and any other ticket purchased from us directly including electric hook-ups. They will all be valid for Tribfest 2021 or fully refundable if we cannot go ahead with Tribfest 2020.



Stay safe and best wishes to you and all of your loved ones.

This definitely does impress us!

Madeleine Roberts – Shania Twain Tribute Show bringing some feel good energy on Saturday afternoon in the VIP tent!

Madeleine Roberts first started performing her tribute to country singing sensation Shania Twain back in early 2003 when people started to comment on how similar she sounded to Shania when performing her songs. Already a huge lover of Shania’s music Madeleine set about studying the country icon and enjoyed performing as her for many years before concentrating on other singing projects. When Shania’s sell out WORLD tour was announced to take place in 2018 Madeleine made the decision to relaunch her Shania tribute act back in to the ever growing and currently popular tribute market.

And boy, aren’t we happy about that!

After their fantastic performance at Tribfest’s Big Night IN on Friday..

…we’re incredibly happy to announce that Moments of Pleasure: The Music of Kate Bush will be in the VIP Big Top on Friday afternoon!
Moments of Pleasure: The Music of Kate Bush are a group of experienced and dedicated musicians and avid fans of Kate Bush who endeavour to pay homage to her amazing talent and music and bring it to the live stage!

We Just Can’t Get Enough Of…

The Devout – Depeche Mode Tribute Act

To put it in words. To write it down. That is walking on hallowed ground. But it’s my duty… And it’s their duty as The Devout to not only bring your favourite Depeche Mode songs to life, but also your memories.

They are more than aware and respectful that DM have fans of all ages; which is why they create a unique experience. To use all of the skill, talent, production and design possible to create a show that transports you back to type of live gigs that made Depeche Mode breakthrough into being established as a Worldwide act.

This not only delivers an opportunity for the fans who ‘were there’ a chance to relive the magic but also gives an insight for the younger audience of what it was like to go to a show where a band were building on, then hitting the peak of their powers. Spreading the news around the world. Taking the word to boys and girls…
