FOO Fighters, Bon Jovi and U2 will be playing at a music festival in Clifton Park this summer...well sort of.
The UK’s only touring tribute festival is coming to the borough on June 18 and will feature the three tribute acts and five local bands.
Mark Pitfield, licensee for Rotherham Fake Festival, said: “We hope to bring a great community event to Rotherham which all the locals can be involved in and have a great day out.
“Clifton Park is a fabulous location, and the festival will bring a feel good factor to the start of the summer.”
The Rotherham Fake Festival will run from 12.30pm to 11pm inside a giant marquee with food and entertainment stalls in and outside the arena.
Jez Lee, owner of Fake Festivals, said: “It’s hard to believe that Fake Festivals started out in a small Lincolnshire village ten years ago, and now tours around the UK.
“I can clearly remember the day, and never imagined it would take off like it has.
“I’m really proud to be able to say we are the UK’s only touring tribute festival, and that we have kept it community-led to, and not sold out to commercial pressures that a lot of festivals experience nowadays.”
Discounted early bird tickets are on sale until May 18 from www.fakefestivals.co.uk, and prices start from £9 for 10-17-year-olds, adults are £16.50 and under 10s go free.
Tickets for Rotherham Fake Festival are also available to buy at Clifton Park’s Garden House Building.
Support bands are yet to be finalised, if you would like to apply to play visit the Fake Festival website.
