The return of The Strange Doors

Making a return to the VIP Big Top at Tribfest 2018, we’re pleased to announce that The Strange Doors – UK Doors Tribute Band, will be performing on Saturday 18th August, 16.00 – 16.45
The Strange Doors are the UK’s most authentic tribute to legendary sixties band, The Doors. Formed in 2011, the band has gone from strength to strength with highlights including headlining Festwich and performing in Paris as part of late Doors singer Jim Morrison’s 70th birthday celebration. Their first appearance at Tribfest 2012 earned them a rave review from Si Cunningham of NME magazine – he wrote that he “couldn’t tell them apart from the real thing.”
Now returning to Tribfest for the fourth time, the band will help you break on though and light your fire.
Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin…

Our 2018 Main Stage headliners are…

We’ve now announced all four of our Main Stage headliners for Tribfest 2018.

Thursday night will see The Four Kicks, a tribute to Kings of Leon. After a Main Stage debut at Tribfest 2017, these guys were fantastic and we knew straight away that they had to headline in 2018.

Meet Loaf, a tribute to Meat Loaf, makes his Tribfest return when he headlines Friday night. Always hugely popular and an absolutely stunning look and soundalike.

One of the names from 2017 that kept coming up was Elvis. Everyone at the festival was blown away by JD King’s Elvis, a tribute to Elvis Presley, so we just had to get him back to headline Saturday night.

A firm Tribfest favourite and always highly requested, we’re welcoming back The Bohemians, a tribute to Queen, to finish off the Main Stage on Sunday night.

Check out the lineup pages to find out more about our headliners and who else will be appearing at Tribfest 2018.
