Speaking ahead of the event, Jools Taylor, UK Tribute Festival director, said: “We have had an extremely positive reaction on announcing coming back to West Park this year. We expect all of the free tickets to be snapped up by weekend.

"Our Festivals are unique as we don’t charge for the costly ticket price, we literally give the tickets away all the festival goers just pay a small booking charge of £3.90.

"People really appreciate what we do and the fact it’s free really adds to atmosphere and overall experience."


Tickets to the event are free, all that must be paid is the booking fee of £3.90.
