Fake Festivals are the UK’s only Tribute festival, they have become a nationwide success with locations up and down the country and now in its 11th season and with more dates than ever before we have decided to bring the show to Shrewsbury. The festival will take place on August bank holiday weekend, in the town’s famous Quarry Park, a site with a proud history of events and live music and will feature 3 top touring Tribute bands along with 5 local groups. The main festival action takes place under the cover of an enormous purpose built marquee ensuring everyone will be warm and dry whatever the British weather may throw at us.

Fake Festivals are designed for the whole family, FREE entry for children aged under 10 when accompanied by a paying adult. There will be plenty to keep kids occupied in the outside entertainment zone, which is part of a fenced area where you will also find all the essential food stalls to feed the family in true festival style.

The stage line-up will feature International touring favourites Oasish, performing hit after hit, anthem after anthem, always a great show with crowd participation at a high from the start, simply guaranteed to blow your mind. They will be joined on the line-up with Tributes to Guns 'n' Roses and U2. Any local bands that are interested in becoming a part of the festival line-up are asked to sign-up and submit details in writing through the Festival website

The Quarry is Shrewsbury's beautiful, 29-acre parkland, encircled by the majestic loop of the river Severn. The Quarry has been Shrewsbury's most important site for recreation since the 16th Century.
