Nothing fake about festival popularity

Hucknall’s first Fake Festival is proving so popular that some venues are already selling out of tickets.

Organisers have now had to restock outlets with tickets to the event.

The festival, which features tribute bands to The Killers, U2 and Foo Fighters, as well as five local bands, is scheduled to take place on July 13th 2013 at Titchfield Park in Hall Drive.

All the acts are held inside the Fake Festival’s marquee with a licensed bar and food and entertainment garden area.

Hucknall’s Stuart Mather, who is helping to co-ordinate the festival, said: “There is just one week left for people to take advantage of the Hucknall Fake Festival early bird offer and get their hands on some cheap tickets.

“Ticket sales are going really well with many of the local ticket outlets even selling out! They have all been re-stocked and are ready to sell.

“Over the past four weeks we have put flyers through the letterboxes of thousands of Hucknall homes and we have put Fake Festival banners around the town.”

And he added: “With the help of many local business, the team will be handing out leaflets along the High Street over the next couple of weekends.”

People wanting to attend the festival can purchase adult tickets for £15 and £7.50 for Young people (10 to 16 years) until midnight on Thursday 13th June.

Prices will then go to £17.50 and £10 respectively until the day before the event.

A limited number of tickets will be available on the day at £22.50 and £12.50. Children under 10 are free.
