Fake Festivals 2018 UK Tour
You’ve been waiting for it... the Fake Festivals 2018 UK tour starts here! Loads of dates online now - but check this out - this year we are doubling the line-ups to SIX Fake Bands at each festival! This tour will be off the scale!Posted by Fake Festivals - Tribute Band Festivals on Friday, 20 October 2017
We're bringing 6 of our ‘fake bands’ to Whickham – 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!
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!
Inside bar - we run our own 'cashless' licensed bar inside the marquee, well-stocked with chilled lager, cider, bitter, spirits, wines and soft drinks. The bar is large and fast-serving, we really take care of your drinks as we know how important they are to the experience.
Drink tokens - tokens are £3.50 each and are available from the token desk to the side of the bar. Exchange tokens at the bar for 1 bar (alcoholic) drink or 2 soft drinks. At Whickham, drink tokens are £3.50/each.
Food Traders - independent traders provide a range of food such as pizza, burgers and jacket potatoes.
Entertainment - this event is primarily about the music but, if the weather allows it, you'll find a variety of stalls, children's rides/inflatables and face painting etc.
