Keeping you Safe - COVID-19

We all hope that by Summer 2021 things will be back to some normality after the challenging year we have all had.

Your safety and the safety of our staff is our number one priority.


How many people will be at Doonhame Festival?

Doonhame Festival is a boutique, small festival. We guarantee the maximum festival audience will be 5,000. This will allow for ample space for social distancing in a clean open air environment.

We also have a limited number of camping tickets to allow for plenty of space between tents.


Will Face Coverings & Hand Sanitiser be provided? 

Face coverings will NOT be provided, but you are required to wear a face covering whilst moving around inside the festival arena. There will be multiple hand sanitiser stations on site as well as a number of wash basins so ticket holders can regularly wash their hands.

For information on Face Coverings please see the Government Website –


Will I be tested for COVID-19?

No. If you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 you must not attend the festival. Failure to comply with these measures could result in your ejection from the arena.


Will the toilets be regularly cleaned?

There will be blocks of toilets on each side of the arena. These toilets will be cleaned between every use.


How will you ensure Social Distancing is being practised? 

All staff will be following Government Guidelines on social distancing. Staff will also be provided with PPE and regular hand washing will be compulsory. We require all customers to adhere to social distancing in line with Government guidance at that time.


Will you use a Track & Trace system?

We will use your ticket data to ensure we follow all requirements for Track and Trace. We will keep your data for 21 days after the festival in we need to pass your details to NHS Dumfries & Galloway for track and trace. Your details will not be provided to anyone else other than NHS Dumfries & Galloway.


Will the Festival go ahead?

We expect the country to be in a very different position by next summer. We will fully comply with all COVID-19 safety requirements that are in place at that time to ensure that we can go ahead in line with Government requirements.


What if the festival can’t go ahead?

We provide 100% guarantee that your ticket will be carried over to Summer 2022. All our line up have confirmed they will move to 2022 if the festival cannot go ahead in 2021.
