Featuring some of the UK’s best tribute bands, the three-day event is now in its third year and is the culmination of a summer of Fake Festivals all around the UK that has included shows in Retford and Thoresby earlier this month.

The line-up for Saturday, September 3 is led by Prodigy tribute Jilted Generation, along with Oasish (Oasis), Four Fighters (Foo Fighters), Kazabian (Kasabian), Blondied (Blondie), The Really Hot Chili Peppers (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Stereotonics (Stereophonics).

Jez Lee, Fake Festivals owner, said: “We have had a phenomenal year on the tour, with nearly all the festival dates being sold out.

“The wet weather at the start of the season didn’t seem to deter festival-goers, with crowds reaching maximum capacity in the marquee.”

“As a ‘thank you’ to those who have supported us on this year’s tour, if you enter a valid ticket code from a previous Fake Festival, we will discount your ticket to The Big Fake Festival by a massive 50 per cent.

“This makes the three days even more affordable so everyone can join in the party.”

Camping is available for less than £100 for all three days.
