The Fake Festival, where tribute bands take centre stage, has added a new location to its tour for this year and will now be heading to Dundee.
Bands will be performing at the city’s Lochee Park on Saturday 15 July, the Evening Telegraph revealed.
Speaking to the newspaper, Dundee festival organiser Ian Brittain explained that the success of the Perth event last summer prompted them to extend the tour in Scotland.
“It’s a great opportunity to bring the local community together, support live music and have a safe family day out – we can’t wait,” he said.
Along with the well-established tribute acts who will be coming to the city, the festival’s organisers have also offered five local bands the chance to provide support on the day. The headliners are tribute acts to Kings of Leon, Queen and Green Day.
Mr Brittain added that they want to give local bands the chance to grow their fan base and play to larger audiences.
The fact that this touring tribute act festival is doing so well backs up the assertion of the Guardian, which recently suggested that UK music festivals are becoming more niche.
In addition, the newspaper noted that many organisers are trying to make their events feel more exclusive by limiting the number of tickets available. There are even some festivals that will only sell tickets to those who have been before, or people who know a previous attendee.
