A DAY-long, open air music tribute event is being staged in one of Taunton's green spaces this summer.

Taunton Fake Festival will take place in a giant marquee on Longrun Meadow from 11.45am to 11pm on Saturday, July 23.

The music extravaganza will feature six 'fake bands' - professional 'touring grade' tribute acts.

The groups appearing in the county town event are The Fillers (taking off The Killers); Fore Fighters (Foo Fighters); Kings of Lyon (Kings of Leon); Enjoy the Silence UK (Depeche Mode); Guns2Roses (Guns N Roses); and Vicky Jackson as P!nk (Pink).

Festival spokesperson Gavin Felvus said: "They put on a superb performance.

"They look, sound and move like the real rock-stars – you have to see them to believe it."

Gavin added: "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."

There will be a licensed bar inside the marquee.

And outside there will be food traders providing a range of food such as pizzas, burgers and jacket potatoes.

Depending on the weather, there will also be a variety of stalls, children's rides and inflatables and face painting.
