Tynemouth Fake Festival

Now in it's 5th year, Tynemouth Fake Festival is one of the biggest dates on our tour and usually sold-out in advance. No better way to kick-off your bank holiday weekend, but be warned - don't leave it too late to get your tickets!


This Fake Festival has now expired. Until next time, keep rocking!

About this event

Tynemouth Fake Festival is a tribute-based music event and one of the tour dates on our 2016 UK summer tour.

We're bringing 3 of our ‘fake bands’ to Tynemouth – professional ‘touring-grade’ tribute bands that put on a superb performance. They look, sound and move like the real rock-stars – you have to see them to believe it!

Plus, talented ‘home-grown’ bands based locally to the festival get to play support to our ‘fake bands’ during their afternoon showcase. Come and support local live music.

We work hard to ensure our festivals are safe, secure and accessible, with a friendly environment that caters for all ages. Our giant marquee covers any poor weather and there's a well-stocked licensed bar inside and a food area outside.

So round up your group or family members and make it a fun packed music day out - come and support live music and party with us late into the evening!

Further information on our About Us page and answers to common questions on the Help page.

HAVE A DRINK ON US - enter the festival before 2:00pm and we'll give you a Drink Token that can be exchanged for 1 bar drink or 2 soft drinks.

THE BIG FAKE FESTIVAL - each Tynemouth ticket can also be used to redeem a 50% discount on a ticket to our awesome 3-day, end-of-season, festival in Nottinghamshire: The Big Fake Festival 2016.
