Our third headliner for Tribfest 2017 and we’re welcoming back an old favourite. One of the best tributes around, we’re pleased to announce that Kazabian will be headlining the main stage on Thursday 17th August 2017.
Kazabian are the official and number one tribute act to the mighty Kasabian, endorsed by the real thing and touring extensively around Britain and Europe.
Bearing an uncanny resemblance, they bring pounding beats and huge guitar-driven choruses to recreate Kasabian’s explosive stage show with unerring accuracy, delivering hits from across all 5 albums.
Since the tribute formed in 2009 they have risen alongside Kasabian, performed over 300 shows and gained the full respect of Kasabian’s loyal fanbase and even added to it!
Some of the band’s highlights include performing alongside Ollie Murs, Pendulum, Ocean Colour Scene, Pigeon Detectives, James, and stars from The Only Way is Essex. Playing the main stage at Liverpool’s Mathew Street Festival to a 40,000 strong crowd. Being voted “Best Tribute” at TribFest in their first year!
The lads have featured in publications such as NME, Q Magazine, Esquire, The Guardian and have had live footage of a Kazabian show aired on NME TV.
Living and breathing Kasabian, they truly are a band that have taken tributing to the next level!!!
We’ve been searching for him over the past 10 years, we thought we’d never find him, but Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis has been found, and is coming to Tribfest 2017!
Headlining the main stage on Saturday 19th August, we’re pleased to announce J.D. King, a tribute to Elvis Presley, will be taking the festival by storm as he makes his Tribfest debut.
JD King is the UK’s 5-star top rated Elvis tribute and impersonator.
Over the past decade JD (Jim Devereaux) has built an international reputation for his incredible recreation of the King. His show is the most authentic and highly-rated Elvis tribute you will find anywhere.
A worldwide show with his fantastic Elvis tribute band – from Las Vegas Boulevard to Sun Studios in Memphis, JD pays tribute to the King like no other.
Elvis is one of the UK’s most loved artists, with more number one hits than you can remember! JD will have you singing along all night to classics including; Suspicious Minds, Hound Dog, Viva Las Vegas, and many many more.
“★★★★★ – Critics’ choice – and the one to watch”
“★★★★★ – Devereaux’s voice was exceptional – he is brilliant – a must see!”

For the 9th year running, we’ve been nominated in the UK Festival Awards for Best Small Festival, Best Family Festival, Best Toilets, and The Grass Roots Festival Award.
The UK Festival Awards & Conference is an opportunity to recognise the hard work, vision and creativity of the nation’s beloved festival industry.
We’re nominated for:
Best Small Festival – What these intimate events lack in scope they compensate for with an abundance of idiosyncrasies and grass roots appeal. Despite their minimal capacity, many of these cater to their audiences with such focus and peculiar charm that larger events may seem bland in comparison.
Best Family Festival – Growing up doesn’t mean you have to stop going to festivals – it just gives you a great opportunity to bring your kids! Every year, there seems to be more and more children at festivals, with specifically designed spaces and facilities for kids reflecting this growth. Games, workshops, play areas and activities for youngsters all combine to make their weekend a memorable one – and often a much easier one for mums and dads. Which festival was the most enjoyable for families this year?
Best Toilets – Although it may not be the most glamorous aspect of an event, the quality and quantity of the toilet facilities are incredibly important to attendees. Whether they take the form of pristine portaloos or potentially kraken-infested longdrops, a festival’s toilet situation is indicative of the respect (or lack thereof) that organisers have for their audience.
The Grass Roots Festival Award – Often the best small festivals spring from an organic labour of love and a visionary idealism that resonates with thousands. These festivals should be celebrated, not just for the courage, commitment and often personal sacrifice invested by their organisers, but also because they never forget where they’ve come from, supporting both local communities and new music along the way while maintaining an independent spirit and resisting commercial saturation. All hail the grass roots festivals and their creators!
All the categories are decided by a public vote, so we’d love it if you could help us out and give Tribfest your vote today!
Plus by voting in the awards, you can win VIP tickets to all the winning festivals in 2017!
