No plans for the weekend?

Here we list five fabulous events on offer that will be sure to keep you and your family entertained.

Fake Festival, Mayflower Park, Saturday

Daily Echo:

ARE you ready to rock?!

Tributes to The Killers, Guns N Roses, Kings of Leon, Muse, The Jam and Depeche Mode will play Mayflower Park this weekend. Fake Festival returns to Southampton on Saturday following a two-year Covid-induced hiatus.

A giant marquee, with room for 2,000 revellers and a sunroof, makes the event completely weatherproof.

Each of the acts, who look, sound and move like the real rock stars, will perform a 75-minute set featuring some of the greatest hits of the original act between around midday and 10pm.

So festival-goers can expect to party to classic tracks like Paradise City, Mr Brightside, Sex on Fire, Sweet Child o' Mine and Somebody Told Me long into the evening.
