Killing In The Name Of…

We’ve got a brand new band to add to the VIP Big Top lineup today. We’re pleased to welcome Rage Against A Machine, the most authentic tribute to Rage Against The Machine.

It’s no easy task to pay tribute to one of the most legendary bands to come out of Los Angeles, Rage Against The Machine. Many have said it can’t be done, and anyone would agree it takes the right amount of energy, charisma, and musical prowess with an authentic sound and performance to get them right.

Rage Against A Machine brings to life an uncanny portrayl and musical performance, engaging everyone from the casual listener to the most enthusiastic fan.

With a playlist that spans the band’s four studio albums, including all their hits as RATM would perform, Rage Against A Machine are guaranteed to drop jaws, stir the crow, and bring to life an excitement that one would only expect to see at a Rage Against The Machine show.

Rage Against A Machine are THE premier Rage Against The Machine tribute band!

I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

They’ve played every year at Tribfest, and 11 years on they still remain a firm fans favourite. We’re proud to announce that Antarctic Monkeys will be rocking the VIP Big Top on Saturday 19th August 2017.
Formed in March 2006 from a jamming session, the Antarctic Monkeys became a phenomenon in their own right, travelling the UK and Europe with numerous tours. The demand is now more than ever.
Firmly established on the tribute scene, their live show has the power, passion and the creative edge to whip audiences into a frenzy when delivering the powerful tunes of the Arctic Monkeys as the way they should be.
Their reputation grew very quickly and in 2009 received approval from close relations to the Arctic’s as well as Chris McClure (from the front cover of the album ‘Whatever People Say I am, That’s What I’m Not’ and brother of Reverend and the Makers lead singer, Jon McClure).
There have been too many highlights to mention them all but main ones include Rock Revolution in Sicily, Oxegen Festival 2010 in Ireland and the Liverpool Mathew Street Festival, playing in front of 50,000 plus people as well as interviews and appearances in Q Magazine, MTV and Sky News.
Rarely is there a tribute band that can rival the original, yet these 4 lads from Wolverhampton mimic Turner, Cook, O’Malley and Helders’ style perfectly.
Current bands don’t get much bigger than this, expect to hear hits such as ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’, ‘Brianstorm’, and ‘Do I Wanna Know?’

A Song For Whoever

Always a firm Tribfest favourite, we’re excited to announce the return of The Beautiful Couch to the Main Stage on Thursday 17th August.

Emulating two of Hull’s finest, and most popular exports, The Beautiful South and The Housemartins. The Beautiful Couch first formed in 2002, playing all over the country. ‘The Couch’ built up a loyal following and a huge reputation in the tribute band world. Playing venues such as Liverpool’s The Cavern and the Matthew Street Festival, the KC Stadium in Hull, and they also supported Deacon Blue and The Commitments at Humberfest!

“It’s Happy Hour Again!”

After taking a few years off, the Couch returned for a one off gig at Hull City Hall in May 2012. Such was the demand for the band to return, they decided to grab their instruments and return to the stage and the fans flocked to see them.

Selling out gigs up and down the country, The Couch are also regular performers at Beautiful South and Housemartins frontman Paul Heaton’s pub ‘The Kings Arms’, Salford.

They were there at the very first Tribfest in a rainy 2007, and now they’re back, make sure you don’t miss them on the Main Stage at Tribfest 2017!
