"Just home from a fabulous Tribfest 10. I've been to all 10, from it's humble beginnings at Driffield, onto Tickton and for the last 5 years at Sledmere, where Ed has continued to put on a top-notch festival. Great organisation, great facilities, great bands and great people. Big shout-out to the loo-cleaner and, as always, the very wonderful Shower Ladies.....cannot be faulted. Thanks Ed for another fantastic weekend. Will I be back next year ? Well let's just say I need to keep up my 100% attendance"
"Fantastic weekend - in spite of the rain you really can't fault Ed and the team. Without a doubt the cleanest portaloos in the country and the bands are first class!
Highlights this year were Dolly, the Queen tribute and Rod Stewart and as usual The Beautiful Couch, Badness and The UB40 Experience were top notch
Easily the best value and friendliest festival available.
See you for tribfest 11"
"Fantastic festival again this year despite the rain. Security being upped was great and loved the Transformation Station!
Spice Up Your Life took me back to being tiny, Adele by Lareena was ace again in the rain and sun and Meet Loaf is always good.
IMO though, Green Date was by far the best on main stage and The Wonderers were brill in VIP. I couldn't believe the age range in the crowd for Wonderers.
I'm hoping they'll both be back next year. Definitely a lot of talent there.
Thanks again Ed & team"
"Our third and most fantastic year! The kids just love kids zone and Emma's craft tent we always come home with lots of handmade souvenirs! Lovely friendly atmosphere. Our favourite family holiday"
Pippa Newman, Harmby
"A great festival and weekend, first time for us at Tribfest although we do as many other festivals that we can to see some great tribute acts. Green Date in particular are favourite and never disappoint, cant wait to see them again. The Wonderers were good for 50's 60's rock n roll covers really enjoyed them.
Well done for providing good clean facilities to Tribfest organisers."
Paul Brewin, Nottingham
"Had a fantastic time at our 1st Tribfest! Absolutely knackered. Great atmosphere, hats off to the staff who kept the site clean and tidy, including the toilets- very impressed! Saw some great unsigned and acoustic acts - the real talent - especially the Educatables & Dogfinger Steve"
"What an experience at Tribfest 2016!!!! Fab line up, fab people, fab organisation, can't wait for next year!! Well done to all you guys behind the scenes,you kept that place spotless"

Emma Littler, Warrington

Alex Thorn, Wigan
"Thanks Ed for another amazing Tribfest weekend! The FRCA kids absolutely loved it and can't wait until Tribfest 11 :D You give young people such a great opportunity and with many other local festivals scrapping the youth stage, it's nice to see someone backing our city's up and coming youth talent! Special thanks to Green Date for supporting one of our young people (who's a massive Green Day fan!) and coming to our marquee to play three songs with his band! Thanks also to Jon, Tommy, Jo and Sam for all their hard work, they're ace! Also, the nineties band that played last night in VIP were class! Hope to see them again next year."

"Been to lots of festivals, but Tribfest has to be seen to be believed. Highlights for me were Bookends, Smiths Ltd, Bye Bye Baby and Ain't Skynyrd. If you have any misconceptions about tribute bands, give Tribfest a go. It's fantastic!!!!!"

The Rex - A Tribute To Marc Bolan an T.Rex
"First day back from four days away at Tribfest, Anne-Marie's and my 8th since it's organisation in Driffield in 2007. It just continues to get bigger and better with all sorts of music from The Carpenters to Motörhead. The Floyd Effect had to marginally beat the UK Foo Fighters and AC/DC UK as the best band. Music aside, as a plus, the toilet crew definitely did their best job in several years. As a minus it was the worst weather since the original in '07. A big thanks to our hosts Sledmere House, Ed, the organisational team, the stage crews, security, the litter pickers and everybody else involved. Looking forward to Trib '15."
Duncan Wilson, Driffield
"A massive thank you to all at Tribfest Music Festival. Once again I had the chance to be like everyone else and just get on with enjoying myself at the festival. The few little problems from last year were sorted and this year went without a single hitch. Special thanks to Ed Faulkner, the sparkies & the firstaiders, I can't express in words how grateful I am to you all. Booked my tickets for next year so hoping to see you all again then xxxxx"
"Well we all had an absolutely brilliant time this year again, the band on the Sunday night was AMAZING! Probably one of the best bands all weekend. Thanks very much to all of the team, no complaints from us"
Siobhan Ketley, Catterick
"It was our first time at Tribfest and we had a great time. Selection of music was enough to cater for the broadest requirements. Beer prices were very reasonable, toilets were kept in very good condition, food selection was good, although Mrs. L would have liked more trade stalls to look round! We even had an hour in the dance tent on Friday, and although it was good, I felt like "the oldest raver in town". (Brought back some great memories though). Thanks to all the folks who worked unseen to put on a great event."
Jolyon Lawson, Driffield
"First time this year for me what a great festival. Roll on 2015"

"Thanks everyone, from Green Date!!! As always our favourite gig of year!!"
Joe Sunday - Green Date
"Security were superb and went above and beyond all weekend, they even came around the camp site to check how everyone was in a morning and evening. Great idea for the separate camping areas, we were in family and it was quiet and spacious! Wouldn't change a thing, it was AWESOME!"
Lisa Billany, Hull

"Big thanks to Ed and team. Another fantastic year"
Rebekah Vickers, Northallerton
"Amazing weekend!! Highlights musically: - Rob from Motorheadache IS Lemmy, The Strange Doors what a band, Ozzy and the guys playing Dio numbers Saturday afternoon in the VIP. The Beautiful Couch I thought were fantastic and should be headlining (even before I realised it was Ed singing!) The Comedy tent was just genius. Overall the staff (security/bar/all of you) were polite and professional, really the best I have ever dealt with in 25 years of going to festival. Definitely booking for next year"
Justin Beswick, Burnley
"I would absolutely recommend this festival to everyone! We had the most amazing 4 days and nights at Tribfest and will be booking again for next year. It was friendly, safe, everything reasonably priced (tickets, food, drink - £3/pint) and a great mix of people from families with kids to groups of friends, even someone celebrating their 71st birthday!"
Brendan O’Donnell, Fridaythorpe
"Just returned from Tribfest 2013 - Wow, such an amazing gig; brilliantly organised and just the best audience ever. Thank you so much, hope we can return next year."
Karen & Mick - Portrait; A Tribute to the Carpenters.
"It was my mates and my first Tribfest and it was absolutely amazing!! All the bands were fantastic and the comedy tent was excellent! What an amazing finale with the fireworks to The Bohemians (Queen tribute). VIP tent was so worth the money too... love the lounge areas! Well done also to Steve the Bomb Disposal Engineer Comedian. Best comedy host I've seen for a long time!!!! Got our tickets for next year & can't wait to bring the family and our mates too this time."
Lisa Hands, Hinckley

Annette Ramsay, Doncaster
“It was a real joy to play Tribfest 2013, we met some fab people and bands, some of you may have overheard The Floyd Effect/Kings Ov Leon drunken singalong around the TFE campfire, great memories. I have been to many festivals over the years but none with the fantastic vibe and atmosphere that Tribfest has."
The Floyd Effect
"We have attended Tribfest for the last three years, we are an all ladies group and we bring our kids because the whole environment of Tribfest is set up to entertain kids and adults, everyone has such a good time that we buy our tickets for next one the week after, so we all have it to look forward to for next year!!"
Joanne McMullan, Selby
"Tribfest is awesome, great range of acts, we drive for three to four hours from Cambridge to come to Tribfest and its 100% worth it!"
Ollie Martin Duxford, Cambridgeshire
"We had a fabulous weekend. The music was great, a huge variety of different bands, something to suit everyone's taste. There was a family friendly atmosphere, great choice of food and drink and we can't wait for this year's line up"
