Fake Festivals specialise in the organisation, promotion and safe management of
fun, family-orientated music festivals that tap into and raise community spirit.

We partner with ‘hosts’, with access to outdoor land large enough to host a large
marquee and with parking facilities that has a catchment area of enough people
within walking distance of the venue.

A host may be charity, school, college, club or organisation looking to raise
money and/or profile.

The festival follows a model that is proven to be enjoyable, safe, commercially
viable and that restricts any potential physical impact to the host’s site. We
achieve this primarily because the main music arena is housed within a large
marquee (5,600 square foot) and the outdoor is fenced for reasons of security and
to contain the consumption of alcohol and distribution of litter.

We will develop a line-up of local acts headlined by three top tribute bands that
are proven to draw in good audience numbers. We will also add in extras such as
celebrity look-alikes, talented local bands, competitions and a few surprises to
ensure that festival goers leave having had a great time.

The fake festival model works best when there are between 800 and 1,000 at the
show.

Why is this attractive to sponsor
•   Sponsors can engage with community spirit and the sense of pride achieved
    through having a professional music festival of their own!
•   Sponsors will receive wide brand exposure ahead of the festival via the                        There will be a beer garden area which is only accessible through the marquee
    posters, flyers, press releases and through www.fakefestivals.co.uk                            with tables and few chairs. The food stands will be within this area.
•   Sponsors can have branded banners at the festival (to a captive market) and
    if appropriate an allocation of space to promote who you are and what you do                   There will be SIA registered Security at the venue to check the wristbands of the
•   Fake Festivals reinforces providing high quality at an affordable price                        people entering and buying drinks and also security at the front of the stage
