About this event

Whickham Fake Festival is a tribute-based music event and one of our 2018 tour dates.

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!
