‘Ooh, yeah, you’re amazing! We think you’re incredible!’

Them Heavy People are coming to the VIP Big Top to show us just how beautiful they are!

It is no easy task to replicate the almighty Kate Bush, given that she did a lot of production work in the creation of her songs. Them Heavy People take great care in the rehearsal process to bring Kate’s songs alive (many of which have never been performed by Kate herself in a live situation), and samples of some of the actual records have been used to give authentic sounds on the keyboards.

Nadine has an uncanny vocal resemblance to Kate, using her natural voice to give note perfect renditions of classic hits, album tracks and fan favourites. Backed by seasoned professionals under the musical direction of Dave on the Bass, the band never fail to delight audiences with their interpretations that closely resemble the original recordings. The show has a strong visual element, using projections behind the band, as well as many iconic costumes that all come together to bring a show that is very close to seeing the real Kate herself.

‘A must-see for any Kate fans.’

Tribfest, the biggest and best tribute music festival for all the family to enjoy!

The Sultans of Swing are coming back to Tribfest 2019!

The Straits UK are made up of five musicians all with a passion for delivering quality music and performance every time.

Residing in the North East of England, the idea to form a tribute to dIRE sTRATS originated with the frontman and drummer, who happen to be father and son. They have both been life long Dire Straits fans, meaning attention to detail is second to none.

Performing all the hits from The Dire Straits back catalogue, with authenticity that has been likened to ‘listening to the real thing’ by many.

Come experience and re-live the unmistakable guitar and keyboard sounds of the Alchemy, Wembley ’85, On Every Street tours and much more!

‘Mr. Saturday night special” at Tribfest on a Sunday….

Aynt Skynyrd have a philosophy on recreating the songs of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band the world has seen, and it’s a simple ethos……

Don’t play it…. Feel it!

In their 12th year now, they have toured up and down the UK, playing all sorrs of gigs from festivals to bike rallys and everything in betweeen. But one thing that is consistent is htier commitment to creating a genuine sound.

They are a self-proclaimed fully disfunctioning awesome rock’n’roll band. Still playing it tlike they stole it (thanks mad Andy), still bickering like school boys (and girls) and still chasing that dream.
