They will be Boston-based bands, None of a Kind, Into the Flames and S.I.R; Skegness-based band, Absence of Freud, and Spalding-based band Careless Chemistry.
Members of Into the Flames say they are ‘buzzing’ and feel privileged and excited to be playing the festival
Lead singer Naomi Bull said: “There is nothing fake about Into the Flames, we are for real!”
The bands will be playing alongside top tribute acts to The Killers, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Kings of Leon.
Organiser Jez Lee said: “We feel that Fake Festivals are the perfect platform for unsigned artists to showcase their talent in front of a friendly, local crowd.
“We provide them with a main stage area and an amazing sound and lighting system for their performance, something unsigned artists do not normally have the chance.”
“You just never know who’s going to turn up to a Fake Festival.”
He added: “We’ve had professionals from the music industry come along to check out the unsigned artists, the news editor of NME magazine, plus scouts from various record labels and venues.”
Tickets are £17 adult, £12.50 young person and £50 family.
