Bath Grounds, Ashby de la Zouch

The Bath Grounds, Station Road, Ashby de la Zouch is where the Fake Festival takes place annually.

What are Fake Festivals?

A Fake Festival is a fabulous opportunity for families and local communities to enjoy a fun packed music day out together at their local playing field, village green, sports field or college campus. It's a chance to meet up with friends and to listen to some great live bands. Each Festival makes a mark on the local community and quickly becomes an annual event to look forward to.

About this event

Fake Festival is a tribute-based music event.  They look, sound and move like the real rock-stars – you have to see them to believe it!

Plus, talented ‘home-grown’ bands based locally to the festival get to play support to our ‘fake bands’ during their afternoon showcase. Come and support local live music.

We work hard to ensure our festivals are safe, secure, accessible and friendly - with an environment that caters for all ages. Our giant marquee ensures a warm, lively, inside atmosphere, so you can really enjoy the music.

So round up your group or family members and make it a fun packed music day out - come and support live music and party with us late into the evening!

Licensed Bar

Inside bar - we run our own licensed bar inside the marquee, well stocked with chilled lager, cider, bitter, spirits, wines and soft drinks. We really take care of your drinks as we know how important they are to the experience.

Drink tokens - buy drink tokens inside the marquee and exchange them at the bar for 1 bar drink or 2 soft drinks. At Ashby De La Zouch, drink tokens are £3.50/each.

Outside Area

Food Traders - independent traders provide a range of food such as pizza, burgers and jacket potatoes.

Entertainment - this event is primarily about the music but, if the weather allows it, you'll find a variety of stalls, children's rides/inflatables and face painting etc.

Each Fake Festival is run under license by a local entrepreneur or organisation who are responsible for the promotion of the event and some of the duties on the event day.
