This year, Leeds Festival has implemented new rules that prohibit entry based on strict criteria such as vaccination status and lateral flow test results.

Here's everything you need to know about refunds, ticket prices, reselling via touts and the new entry requirements for Leeds Festival 2021.

What are the current Covid-19 entry requirements?

This year to enter the festival, attendees must prove that they have received both doses of their vaccine, have had a negative lateral flow test within 24 hours of their entry or have immunity after catching the disease and then isolating.

Without one of these three, festival-goers will be refused entry on the door and a refund will not be granted.

You can book in for a lateral flow test in your area here.
