Blown away by Tribfest

Tribfest 2014 - The Greenlaws

More than 50 damaged tents were among the rubbish left behind after last weekend’s Tribest at Sledmere House.

The festival, which is said to be the largest tribute act festival in the world, was attended by almost 4,000 campers and caravaners who were entertained by hundreds of artists in bands such as Meet Loaf, The Beautiful Couch and Green Date.

And in what’s believed to be a world first for any musical festival, a church choir performed on the main stage on the Sunday morning.

The choir brought with it a congregation of around 200 people from churches across the Driffield, many of whom had never attended a music festival before.

Meanwhile, festival director Ed Faulkner said a total of four 40-foot long skips had been filled with rubbish left behind after the festival. He said the rubbish included 50 tents which had been blown apart by the strong winds.

He added: “Some campers bring everything apart from the kitchen sink, and some even do bring the kitchen sink and that ends up in the skip too.”

Tickets for next year’s Tribfest are already on sale. Visit
