Burrs Live is The Met’s outdoor music venue for summer 2021.

Burrs Live will be situated at Burrs Country Park from Fri 27 August to Sun 5 September.

Utilising two contained fields within the park, this is a large outdoor space that allows for plenty of distancing. The site is suitable for all ages and includes up to two stages, food and drink provision and plenty of toilets.

Events are ticketed so please check out the event information page.

Seating is not provided and Burrs Live will very much encompass a festival atmosphere. Please bring blankets, chairs or whatever you need to enjoy your stay at Burrs Live.

There will be plenty of toilets placed throughout the site.
