Fleetwood-Bac-HR-wrdeup.jpg

FLEETWOOD BAC were the world’s first and are regarded as the UK’s most authentic Fleetwood Mac Tribute show, raved about by Peter Green’s biographer, and were the first Fleetwood Mac tribute band to fully replicate the classic Stevie, Lindsey, Christine, John & Mick ‘Rumours’ line-up.

Bez will be supported by FatBoy Tim, a familiar lookalike of Norman Cook himself (The original FatBoy!). Not only does he look like Norman, perform like Norman and generally misbehave on stage like Norman, but he is a totally world class DJ!

Completing our Friday line-up and opening WrdeUp 2024 are…Alpha Circle! In 2017, 2 brits and a Spanish guitarist had a jam in Madrid and formed the band the very next day. Fast forward to now and we have a strong 5-piece outfit with a goal to compose modern and upbeat music to get people on their feet…and that’s exactly what they do!
