2016 has seen the largest Fake Festivals tour to date, with 33 festivals taking place throughout the summer across the UK.

The end-of-season finale takes place inside the Fake Festivals Big Top, with free secure parking and camping for up to four nights, as well as 20 world-class tribute bands.

“We have had a phenomenal year on the tour, with nearly all the festival dates being sold out,” says Jez Lee, owner of Fake Festivals. “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%. This makes the three days even more affordable so everyone can join in the party.”
