FAKE FESTIVALS CELEBRATES 10 YEARS WITH ITS BIGGEST UK TOUR EVER
Fake Festivals returns to Harrogate for the 10th Anniversary tour
The UK’s only touring tribute festival returns to Harrogate this summer and is celebrating its 10th anniversary. All the fun kicks off at The Stray on Saturday 23rd July, with three major tribute acts and five local support bands, who will be turning up the heat this summer.
“Last year was yet another success for Fake Festivals at Harrogate, and the event was once again a sell-out. This year we are back even stronger with another fabulous line-up with something for everyone,” says Danni Saxton, licensee for Harrogate Fake Festival.
2016 will see world-class tributes to Queen, Kasabian and U2 hit the stage at The Stray, along with five lucky local support bands.
The 10th anniversary celebrations will be going on all day and night, and there will be the main bar inside the marquee, and a variety of food and entertainment stalls in the outside arena.
“It’s hard to believe that Fake Festivals started out in a small Lincolnshire village ten years ago, and now tours around the UK,” says Jez Lee, owner of Fake Festivals. “I can clearly remember the day, and never imagined it would take off like it has. I’m really proud to be able to say we are the UK’s only touring tribute festival, and that we have kept it community-led to, and not sold out to commercial pressures that a lot of festivals experience nowadays.”
Discounted early bird tickets are already on sale until 23rd June from the Fake Festivals website, www.fakefestivals.co.uk, and are priced as follows:
Young Person (10-17 years) £9.00

The Big Fake Festival takes place again this year at Thoresby Park in Nottinghamshire from 2nd to 4th September, where all of the twenty tribute bands will be performing.
