Music fans are set to flock to a Sheffield park to hear the sounds of their idols – performed by a trio of top tribute acts.

The Sheffield Fake Festival is returning for the second successive year following the success of last year’s event.

This year will see tribute acts Four Fighters, Really Hot Chili Peppers and New2 take to the stage at Hillsborough Park on Saturday, August 2.

An event spokesman said: “Last year’s Sheffield Fake Festival was amazing, but we think this year’s line -up will blow you away.

“Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and U2 tributes, plus support, is a line up of immense proportion.

“Held inside the Fake Festivals marquee, it has all the elements to be a huge event.”

Attractions at the event include an entertainment zone for children, food and a bar open until 10.45pm.

The fake festival tour will also return to Barnsley for the fourth time.

New2 will be joined by Green Day tribute act Green Date and The Stone Roses tribute act Total Stone Roses – who wowed crowds at the Sheffuield event last year – for the event at Locke Park on Saturday, July 19.

n Early-bird tickets for each event are now on sale priced £15 for adults from www.fakefestivals.co.uk – entry will be £25 for adults on the day.
