Inside giant marquee in Mayflower Park, Southampton SO14 2AQ

Southampton, are you ready for this!?

Your third annual Fake Fest is now twice as good! This year we are doubling the line-up, you get SIX pro-level Fake Bands! It's a massive local rock party - until late evening - so join us inside our giant marquee on the Riverside, we can't wait.

An awesome location for this event, alongside the water at Mayflower Park. A stunning setting with an equally stunning triple line-up of 'fake bands' - Oasish, Flash, Kazabian, New2, Really Hot Chili Peppers and The Police Force. Let's blow the marquee roof off!

Southampton Fake Festival is a tribute-based music event and one of the tour dates on the 2018 UK summer tour.

Bringing ‘fake bands’ to Southampton – professional ‘touring-grade’ tribute bands that put on a superb performance. They look, sound and move like the real rock-stars – you have to see them to believe it!

The organisers work hard to ensure the festivals are safe, secure and accessible, with a friendly environment that caters for all ages. The giant marquee covers any poor weather and there's a well-stocked licensed bar inside and a food area outside.

So round up your group or family members and make it a fun packed music day out - come and support live music and party late into the evening!
