You may hear the words “fake festival” and wonder what that may entail. Is it a virtual event? Is it a prank? Well, since we have a fake festival coming to Tynemouth this year, we are going to clear up all of those burning questions for you, and let you know exactly what to expect.

Fake Festivals are an event company who tour the UK, providing “fake festivals” to local residents. The line-up of a fake festival consists of tribute acts, which is why the name “fake” is used to promote the event.

However, Fake Festivals ensure that only the best and most believable acts are booked, so that attendees can enjoy the performances as if they were the real thing.

Tynemouth’s Fake Festival will take place on Saturday, April 22 at Percy Park RFC, inside a giant marquee. The event will begin at 11.45am and will come to an end at 11pm.
