Foo Fighters, Queen, Guns n Roses and ACDC are among the classic rock acts who the tribute acts will perform as.

Tickets for the festival are free, there’s only a booking fee to pay and organisers say it is one of the UK’s biggest free-to-attend events.

UK Tribute Festival’s director Jools Taylor said: “We have had an extremely positive reaction on announcing coming back to Preston for the 5 th year so much so we have had to extend the capacity for each day of the festival, each day was set at 5000 and due to high demand we have had to increase the capacity to 7,500 per day seeing a total of 15,000.


“We expect all of the free tickets to be snapped up very soon.

“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.”

Alongside the music there will be a fun fair, food and beer tens and kids activities.
