WEST Cumbria's premier tribute festival will be returning later this month, with tickets available for free.

Reboot takes place at Derwent Park, in Workington, on Saturday June 30, with a line-up of some of the UK's top tribute artists.

A limited number of free tickets will be available and must be pre-booked via EventBrite.

The full line-up is yet to be released but the headline act this year is highly-acclaimed Stone Roses tribute The Clone Roses, who are described by Mani from the original band as “the second best Stone Roses in the World!”.

The band are also set to play Kendal Calling this year and will be supported at Reboot by Courteeners tribute, the Courtbetweeners, with more to be announced.

Opening the stage this year will be Cockermouth-based Mojo Rising, a booking that has become a bit of a tradition for the festival having opened the stage on each of Reboot's three years so far.

A second stage will play host to the best of Cumbria’s music scene with performances from local bands and musicians throughout the day.

Previous events have seen musical tributes to iconic acts such as David Bowie, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Oasis, Stereophonics, Foo Fighters, Queen and Kasabian.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Allerdale Borough Council’s portfolio holder for economic growth, says: “Reboot festival is a brilliant family day out. It’s small enough for you to be able to take the whole family and big enough that you could have a really good crack.

"There’s something for everyone - young and old. The atmosphere the last two years has been great. This year’s event is promising to be even better with fantastic bands and kids' activities - and all for free.

"As a council, we know how important festivals and events are in promoting the area, as well as boosting the local economy. That’s why we’re really keen to support events like Reboot.”

There will be a bar, a number of food outlets and family-friendly activities and entertainment on offer throughout the day, hosted by Rainbow Jelly. This year sees the addition of a new area which will be home to DJs and a cocktail bar.

The one-day festival is organised by CN Events and supported by Allerdale Borough Council, Workington Town RLFC and the Times and Star.

Anna Chippendale, event manager at CN Events, says: “We’re delighted to be working with Allerdale Borough Council and Workington Town Rugby Club to bring Reboot back in 2018.

"The last two year’s events were a great success and the line-up this year is shaping up to be fantastic so watch this space. It’s a really brilliant day out for the whole family and a chance to listen to some of the nation’s favourite music, all for free!”

Tickets will be limited to four per person and under 18s wishing to attend must be accompanied by an adult.

Reboot takes place at Derwent Park on Saturday June 30, from 1pm to 9.30pm. Free tickets are available via www.eventbrite.co.uk
