Five local artists selected to perform at Gloucester Fake Festival

The UK's only touring tribute festival is set to visit Gloucester this May, and five lucky local support artists have been selected to perform on the main stage.

The first Gloucester Fake Festival will descend upon the city on Saturday 13 May 2017 for a day of outstanding tribute music, and five local bands have been selected to perform on the main stage.

Set to support three of the UK’s top-grade tribute bands, Blondied, Oasish, and Flash, the talented local artists have been hand-picked by licensee for Gloucester Fake Festival, Rachel Whittaker, after months of reviewing applicants.

Festival-goers will be able to see arena-rock tribute act Deja Vudou; indie rock band 4th Street; Cheltenham-based band The Bridge; mod, indie band Knebakeye Alley; and rock and blues covers band, The Hush, who will open the show.

Speaking of the selection process, Rachel said: ‘We always get such a great response to the call for submissions and have spent the past few months reviewing all the applicants and speaking to some of the bands.

‘We do like to ensure that the artist is professional, as we take the quality of our entertainment very seriously, so we run a strict online application process to make sure we are getting great local bands that are not afraid of playing a big stage to a large crowd’.
