Just can’t get enough!

Returning to Tribfest for the first time since 2015, we’re pleased to announce that Remode – a tribute to Depeche Mode will be performing on the Main Stage at Tribfest 2017!
Just can’t get enough Depeche Mode?
Even Johnny Cash and Marilyn Manson covered the most successful technopop group of all times. But who can play live, original versions apart from Depeche Mode themselves?
Remode is Germany’s most popular Depeche Mode tribute band. No other comes as close to the power and passion of the boys from Basildon as this band from Bielefeld.
In 2007, Remode was named “Europe’s Best Depeche Mode Tribute Band” by the music magazine Subway. The band celebrated the accolade with a concert in the Brunswick Volkswagen Concert Hall in front of over 4,000 fans.
In recent years, Remode has been played high up on the bill at festivals and events all over the world. Remode inspires emotions that can only be felt at a live Depeche Mode concert.

Welcome to the jungle!

Making their second appearance at Tribfest, we’re pleased to welcome the return of Guns Not Roses – Guns N’ Roses Tribute

After performing in the VIP Big Top last year as Gunz N’ Rozes. A year later, a name change, and a move to the main stage, Guns Not Roses deliver the classic line up musical experience, focussing on performances from the notorious 1987-1993 era that fans associate most with the band, replicating that authentic 80s rock sound made famous during the period that they were considered the world’s biggest band.

You can expect a greatest hits set including classics including Welcome to the Jungle, November Rain, Live and Let Die, Paradise City, You Could be Mine and of course the seminal Sweet Child O’ Mine.

Pull out your ripped denims and studded leather jackets and join us in a night of hard rock nostalgia with one of rock music’s most highly regarded bands.

They’ll be opening the Main Stage on Thursday 17th August

The House of Fun!

It wouldn’t be Tribfest without them, and they’ve played almost every year for the past 10 years, it’s Badness, the ultimate tribute to Madness!

They are always one of the most talked about bands at the festival and are sure to get the crowd up and dancing, whatever the weather!

The band were formed in July 1994 and Badness quickly became one of the top Ska / 2Tone revival bands in the country. Within six months of forming, the band were selling out various venues across the UK & Ireland. Playing classic Madness, Bad Manners and The Specials, to name but a few, Badness have tours of Isreal, Germany and Spain under their belts and have played every town and city in the UK (well almost!) Badness have built up a cult following and regularly sell out venues across the country!

Re-live the “Dance Crazy” days of the late 70s & early 80s with the No.1 Ska revival band in the UK.

Be prepared to dance the night away as Badness are back and ready to hit the main stage with a bang!

Let’s Dance

After a stunning performance in the VIP Big Top at Tribfest 2016, we’re pleased to announce that ‘The Sensational David Bowie Tribute Band’ will be performing on the main stage at Tribfest 2017!

The Sensational David Bowie Tribute Band are one of Britain’s favourite Bowie tributes. Their front-man is recognised as the closest sounding to the great man himself.

They are a loud and live rock band who use no backing tracks or samples, and cover all of Bowie’s many incarnations, regularly selling out large venues across the country. They can count, amongst their fans, many of rock and roll’s greats…

“Let’s Dance”

John is David Bowie. Al is guitarist Mick Ronson. Andy is keyboard player Mike Garson, Tom is bass player Trevor Bolder and Matt is drummer Woody Woodmansey!

Completing the line up is Ali (6 string and 12 string acoustic), Steve (saxophone and harmonica) and Janice (backing vocals and extra percussion).

Together they recreate the music of David Bowie from Space Oddity in 1969, through the Spiders from Mars era and on into 1980 with Ashes to Ashes and many other classic tracks.

East Riding Best Bar None Awards 2016

Last night, the Tribfest Team attended the East Riding Best Bar None Awards at Beverley Racecourse. As well as becoming an accredited venue, Tribfest was awarded 3rd place in Best Entertainment/Leisure Venue.

Best Bar None is a National Award Scheme supported by the Home Office and aimed at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises. It was piloted in Manchester in 2003 and found to improve standards in the Night time economy, with premises now competing to participate.

After 10 years organising Tribfest, it’s great that we’re getting recognition for all the hard work, time and energy that goes into running the world’s biggest tribute band music festival.

It was a brilliant night celebrating the wide range of bars, pubs, and venues across the East Riding, with good food, brilliant entertainment, and a few glasses of wine too!

A big thank you to East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Licensing Team for organising a fantastic night.

To top it all off, Dave won an orchid in the raffle too!
