Big Fake Festival - South West


Cancellation Statement - 03 May 2022

It is with regret that we have made the decision to cancel our three new Big Fake Festival events for 2022, as listed below.

  • Big Fake Festival - Scotland 2022
  • Big Fake Festival - South West 2022
  • Big Fake Festival - South East 2022

Our other Big Fake Festival event, “Big Fake Festival - East Midlands 2022” at Walesby (Nottinghamshire) in September will still go ahead as planned.

We would like to thank everybody who supported us and bought tickets for the cancelled events, as well as all the suppliers and staff that have been involved in the planning. It has been a difficult and sad decision, and one that we have tried to avoid. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience it may cause those who were planning to join us.

Our original and long established “Big Fake Festival - East Midlands” event has grown so popular over the years that we are always being asked to bring the event to other areas of the UK, with the same great format, FREE camping and 24 Fake Bands. And that’s what we set out to do for you in 2022 with these new Big Fake Festival events. But we did not foresee the impact of economic uncertainty or expect the continued issues with COVID-19 would make the new events so difficult to get going, despite our best efforts, experience and investment.

In the end, we realised that we could not deliver you the same amazing vibe, atmosphere and buzz that you would expect from a Big Fake Festival, and that we wouldn’t settle for giving you anything less. So this year won’t be the year for the new events, but we like to hope future years may well be.

We will be automatically refunding all bookings for the cancelled events over the next few weeks and expect to have them all completed by 10th May 2022. You do not need to contact us about your refund, we will be working our way through them as soon as we can. Also, we are not able to transfer booking tickets between events.

We’re all still raring to get party rocking with you guys, so if you are able to, we’d love to see you at Big Fake Festival - East Midlands 2022 in Nottinghamshire this September! It’s our main event and it’s an absolute corker - you really wouldn’t want to miss it. If not, there’s all the tour dates dotted around the UK going ahead most weekends over the summer period.
