What are Fake Festivals?

Simply the local event not to miss!

A Fake Festival is a fabulous opportunity for families and local communities to enjoy a fun packed music day out together at their local playing field, village green, sports field or college campus. It's a chance to meet up with friends and to listen to some great live bands. Each Festival makes a mark on the local community and quickly becomes an annual event to look forward to.

There are many Fake Festivals throughout the UK every year, see our Tour Dates for the latest dates. Each Fake Festival is run under license by a local entrepreneur or organisation who are responsible for the promotion of the event and some of the duties on the event day.

Fake Festivals are currently looking for new UK licensees and venues. For further information read our License Opportunity page.

Top UK Tributes

3 top UK tribute bands perform at each Fake Festivals and are specifically chosen to please a wide audience range, giving the events maximum appeal. Professional touring acts in their own right, they provide the highlight of the days events and bring a true summer music festival experience with songs that everybody loves.

Local Support Bands

Local bands are invited to perform at the Festival before the professional tributes take the stage.

Outside Entertainment

Outside the marquee is the "Entertainment Zone," a large fenced area for entertainment stands to keep kids and festival goers amused plus the all-important food stands that are essential for keeping the audience fed in true festival style.

Toilets and security ensure comfort and piece of mind for each event, making sure that the day is enjoyed by both the young and more senior members of the locality.
