Due to all the uncertainty in the events and festival world right now, and with the 31st JULY being so close to Boris' Green Light date of the 19th we have come to the rather hard decision to delay SYN 21 to 2022.
For us to keep pushing forward with a 2 day festival this year is just too much of a financial risk - if Boris changes the playing field one more time then we further risk our ambition of being here for future years - so better to delay for 1 year than risk many.
We have and always will endeavour to be fair to our raving crew. So we are offering 3 options for anyone who has purchased tickets:
Roll over your ticket(s) to 2022 - securing your place for this years price - and continue to support us in the knowledge that your ticket money is ALWAYS safe.
Request a full refund, on or before June 25th, & we will ensure you receive a full & quick, no quibble refund before July 14th.
And the 3rd... Well, as you know we are always working hard in the background to see if we can get a party on for you lot... So... In light of so many Promoters having their dates and parties taken away from them by the latest government announcement we got chatting with 2 of them to see if we can all bring you something from all of us... Not a 2 day festival... but something simpler with reduced risk that we could manage and where you all still get to have a MASSIVE open air party. After all we have the date, it would be a shame to waste it. So the 3rd options is:
3. Transfer part or all of your ticket purchase to a brand new 1 day party presented by Housework, Dirty Stereo, Luvism & Back To The Old Skool. Same date (Saturday 31st July) across 3 stages still with a cracking line up including SLIPMATT, K-KLASS, SHADES OF RHYTHM, MATT MAY & ALTERN8 and the chance to dance in the sun together - finally - taste of Freedom. Not what we envisaged... But a rather inclusive solution for those who have had their dates and parties ripped away from them. And lets face it, it's better than sitting at home, twiddling our thumbs and dreaming of better times. Any difference in value will be refunded to you or transferred to 2022 - your choice.
Any requests for Rollover, refunds or ticket changes must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 25th June. Any emails should be from the lead ticket buyer and include ticket details and purchase reference.
2 days, 3 stages, over 40 DJs, camping and glamping on the outskirts of London. We walk the forbidden path together for a weekend of SYN.
This hot off the press event is the brainchild of HOUSEWORK and SLIPBACK IN TIME – two brands synonymous with delivering the very best parties to the very best people.
And when one day is just not enough… we bring you two full-on days of the very best house music delivered in the urban wilderness of St Albans. The SYN FESTIVAL is big enough to inspire, but small enough to stay intimate – making sure you see the DJs you want to see without losing your marbles or your mates – unless you really want to.
It’s time to experience the great outdoors together - from daytime playtime to raving & misbehaving under the stars. On 31 JULY and 1 AUGUST we get busy with some summertime vibes.
Just some of the talent injecting the vibes throughout the weekend are house heroes DAVID PENN, SLIPMATT, K-KLASS, ROB TISSERA, SHADES OF RHYTHM, TENACIOUS & ANDY GALEA. They will be joined by nearly 40 other SYN favourites to bring you over 60 hours of quality beats and bleeps. Full line up below...
And that is just the SYNNERS and DISCO-TECH stages… we haven’t even touched on the SHINE stage - A place for you to experience emerging new talent as well as get re-acquainted with some of our firm favourites.
It is going to be 48 hours that get burnt into memory.
Whether you are a one day festival goer or you want to get down and dirty for the full weekend and stay on site, there are plenty of options to suit your fancy.
Single day tickets, weekend passes, camping or glamping and VIP treatment are all on the cards. Rock up on the Friday and leave on the Monday if that’s your thing. No rush, hurry or scurry – there is time to kick back and relax as you leave your worries behind. Whether you want to dance until you drop, catch your breath in our chill out area or spoil yourself with a little bit of pampering… wellness for your mind, body & soul is on our agenda.
For those that camp in our own tented village, purchase a weekend ticket or go VIP then there is some night time afters action… a little extra bonus to your Saturday night.
Food and drinks provided by hand-picked vendors. No dirty burger vans here… quality food and drinks to keep you partying hard throughout the weekend – catering for all your preferences.
VIP will have priority entry, your own draft bar with premium bottle service available. Access to your own toilets PLUS a private area to make sure you don’t miss your favourite DJs – plenty of time & space for you to kick back and relax and chew the fat with friends whilst soaking up the beats.
For those that want to get in nice and early and avoid the queues – we will be allowing those who are camping to arrive after 4pm to set up. No music is scheduled Friday night but, with so many DJs likely to be on-site camping, who knows what could happen??
It is time to get up and get your mojo on for day one. Early risers can get involved with our wellness activities in the morning whilst the late risers can grab some brekkie & prepare for what lies ahead. We kick off nice & early for a full day of the very best in house music. Our Saturday line up will get arms in the air, feet stomping and the mandatory hugs flowing.

For those that have opted for Weekend Camping or VIP then the beats continue with a little bit of ‘after the sun goes down’ naughtiness with SLIPMATT & FRIENDS. Lights out by midnight though… tomorrow isn’t far away.
The truly hardcore will awaken at dawn and join our wellness crew for more stretching, loosening & mental preparation. For those that have yet to sleep we expect you to roll out of your tents, dust yourselves down & get ready to go again. If you are a Sunday only ticket holder you’ll be welcomed with smiles as we raise the Hertfordshire roof for our super Sabbath. And what a day we have planned.
