The big white Fake Festivals marquee will once again be at Retford Rugby Club next month as the ever-popular touring tribute festival brings world-class tributes to The Killers, Oasis and Blondie.

The Fillers, Oasish and Blondied are the best tribute acts in their field.

They not only sound like the real thing, but they also look like them, and deliver the most accurate stage show of the real band.

Jez Lee, owner of Fake Festivals, has spent years finding the best tributes, and luckily they are all based in the UK.

He said: “It’s a very proud thing to be able to say that the best tributes to The Killers, Oasis and Blondie are found in the UK.

“I have seen many tribute bands across the globe perform, and none match up to the ones I have found here in the UK.

“All the tribute bands we use are booked round the world to perform, illustrating their great demand, and they are also highly recommended and endorsed by the real thing, so we feel very lucky that they are able to add us to their gig dates.”

Oasish, one of the headlining tributes, tour extensively around the UK and Europe, and use the same amps that Oasis use, to produce the genuine sound.

Paul Higginson, Oasish’s frontman commented: “Fake Festivals is a great concept, and we always love being part of the tour

“It’s a great chance for us to perform in the UK and to also catch up with friends from the other tribute bands too.

“The Fake Festivals tour has gone from strength to strength each year, and this year with the Big Fake Festival, it’s guaranteed to be a winner.”

Not only can fans at Retford enjoy the live shows, but they can also get up close and personal with their idols, as they pass through the marquee, grabbing a beer before they go on stage.

As well as The Fillers, Oasish and Blondied, the line-up will also feature five local support acts.

The show is on July 2, asdvanced tickets priced £21 (£11 young person, £53 family, children aged up to nine free) are available now at
