About this event

Harrogate Fake Festival is a tribute-based music event and one of our 2017 tour dates.

We're bringing 3 of our ‘fake bands’ to Harrogate – 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, accessible and friendly - with an environment that caters for all ages. Our giant marquee ensures a warm, lively, inside atmosphere, so you can really enjoy the music.

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!
