The “Big Fake Fest” just got bigger!

Our hugely anticipated end-of-season finale has grown so popular, we’re moving to a larger site further down the road. Don’t worry though – that fabulous Fake Festival vibe, that we all love, is definitely coming with us!

Every year, since 2014, we’ve marked the end of our UK Tour with these 3 special days of relaxing, rocking and partying. We’re like a giant family – staff, crew, bands and yourselves – coming together to enjoy superb music and the best atmosphere you’ll feel anywhere. We’re so proud of its festival vibe and crowd of regulars that support the event every year. Join us, let’s end the summer with a bang!
