Leading tributes to the Killers, Kasabian, Pink and the Rolling Stones will appear at the popular two-day family-friendly festival which takes place at Manchester Rugby Club in Cheadle Hulme on Saturday 1 June and Sunday 2 June 2019.
Now in its second year at the Cheadle Hulme site, Cheshire Fest promises a huge celebration in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.
The 2019 event is the largest yet, with a festival ground which is twice the size of last year, an even larger Main Stage, and a packed programme of family entertainment, live music, food and drink.
The Cheshire Fest Main Stage will feature the region’s finest new talent and a fantastic line-up of the UK’s best tribute acts across both days.
The Fillers and Kazabian will play on Saturday 1 June when the ‘Big Hitters’ theme promises a line-up of rock ‘n’ roll, indie pop and festival favourite inspired artists. They join headliners Kings Ov Leon, along with The Phonics (Stereophonics) and Tina Turner tribute Totally Tina, who have already been announced.
Meanwhile The Stones and Vicky Jackson as Pink take to the main stage on Sunday 2 June which has a‘Family Favourites’ theme which will entertain audiences with a host of all-time music greats for all ages.
Critically acclaimed Queen tribute Flash, Bruno – A Tribute To Bruno Mars and Little Mix tribute band Little Fix are also part of the Sunday line-up.
The Fillers are the world’s first and best tribute to The Killers and are the only tribute artists recognised by The Killers themselves. The band was formed in 2006 in Bury St Edmunds and its members have even played alongside The Killers, as well as on stages all over the world.
Kazabian deliver pounding beats and huge guitar-driven choruses to recreate Kasabian’s live stage show with unerring accuracy, are the official and number one tribute to the Leicester rockers.
You can’t always get what you want, but you can when leading tribute act The Stones launch in to the rich catalogue of one of the greatest bands of the past 100 years. With a deep love of The Rolling Stones’ music, this is a band which produces as authentic an experience as an audience is likely to get outside a real Stones’ concert.
Vicky Jackson meanwhile continues to dominate the tribute scene with her startling performances as Pink. Over the past decade she has entertained audiences across the globe with her energetic and accurate portrayal of the Grammy Award-winning singer.
In addition to the Main Stage line-up, a major new music announcement is set to be announced soon.
Festival organisers Philip Osborne and Ben Harris said: “We’re delighted to be able to reveal these new acts for our main stage. These are tribute artists who really are at the top of their game, bringing to life the music of some of the world’s biggest stars in flawless performances.
“Cheshire Fest goes from strength to strength and this year is set to be the biggest yet – both in terms of the sheer size of the festival site itself, and the exciting and ambitious line-up of music, entertainment, food and drink on offer. We’re incredibly proud to be able to bring this festival to the people of Cheshire.”
Cheshire Fest 2019 will also include an all-new Play Park and Kids Stage for young festivalgoers; Street Food Village offering a wide choice of international cuisines; Gin Garden, Prosecco Bar, and cask ale and craft beer relaxation areas.
