Tribfest 2008

Its back bigger and better East Yorkshires answer to Glastonbury. An exciting 3 day festival of music featuring some of the countries top tribute bands is back for its 2nd appearance in East Yorkshire. The Glastonbury-style event, which attracted around 3,000 last year, is expected at least to double following its massive success and is being held at the Driffield Showground, Kellythorpe near Driffield for the second year running.

But music lovers can get a taste of what's to come at the Tribfest Taster being staged at Hull City Hall on Saturday 17th May 2008. Featuring four top tribute bands – including The Antarctic Monkeys, a tribute to the Arctic Monkeys - Who already have national acclaim – The Fillers, a tribute to The Killers – Who have made a massive impact on the UK tribute Scene - and two of the top Tribfest ‘07 bands who played last years festival, Achtung Baby, a tribute to U2 and our very own Hull based band topping the bill, Badness, a tribute to Madness/Ska.

The gig will provide four and a half hours of quality music. Starting at 7pm and finishing 11.30pm. “The Tribfest Taster was very successful last year, over a thousand people attended , but we have gone one better this year and added another band,” said Eddy. “We are aiming this night at all ages especially families, as we have a special reduction of £50 for a family of four” With an aim to giving people value for money as the main festival achieves.

There's not much to do for a family on a Saturday night, and as with the main festival we got a lot of families there last year. And we have 2 bands for the younger ones and 2 bands for the adults” It's like a mini indoor festival so we would like everyone to turn up in there festival wellies!!!!

All people buying the Tribfest Taster ticket can get 15% off their Tribfest 08 Festival ticket if they keep their Taster ticket stub and redeem it back at the Hull City booking office. The tickets for the Taster are priced at; £20 Adults, £10 Children 5-16 years, £15 Concessions, £50 2 Adults 2 Children

Both this summer's Tribfest and the Tribfest Taster are being organized by Eddy Faulkner, of Ed Entertainments Ltd, who is also the front man of the highly-acclaimed tribute band, The Beautiful Couch, tribute to the Beautiful South & Housemartins “The idea for Tribfest came after seeing the reaction The Beautiful Couch and other tribute bands receive at gigs around the country. The Couch has played twice at the Mathew Street Festival in Liverpool, which attracts around 400,000 people over the weekend; it has a full day dedicated to the UK's top tribute bands.” “If Liverpool can do it then why can't we?

We are trying to create our very own event which I feel over next few years will become nationally recognized.” “I think East Yorkshire has suffered as far as music festivals are concerned, but feel we have now filled the gap.” “We.re using last year's festival as our inspiration making it bigger and better this year. We have added another day on for the music starting Friday 15 th August at 6pm instead of the 12 noon Saturday, which takes the bands from 18 to 22 over the weekend.” There is lots of other entertainment on offer, this year we have acquired the services of Music Exchange who run local events in Hull who will be gathering some of the top local acts to perform at the festival. Because of the family element we are increasing the entertainment for children, stalls, food and drink, and lots of other onsite activities. It should be a fantastic, fun weekend, which will pull more people into the East Yorkshire area.

The weekend camping event will be staged at Driffield Showground, Driffield, on Friday 15th , Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th August 2008. The new line up of 22 bands will be released mid April 2008 Eddy is searching for more sponsors for Tribfest, as well as stall holders, caterers and other firms that might want to get involved. “We got the backing of local businesses last Year i.e. Viking FM, Bonus Electrical, East Riding Council, Stratstone Mini as well as several smaller companies who sponsored the bands which was fantastic with it being a new event” said Eddy. Kingston Communications have also agreed to get involved in Tribfest ‘08 and all businesses who supported us last year are getting on board this year again which is a testament to the success of the event. Driffield Showground was absolutely top class for an event of this nature, with great facilities.
