There’s nothing fake in festival’s local line-up


THERE are three days left until this year’s Boston Fake Festival, in Central Park, where local bands will be given the chance to shine as they take to the stage.

On Saturday, four bands will be taking to the ‘introducing stage’ as the festival showcases some of the most exciting artists in the region from 12.30pm.

Hip-hop rock band S.I.R will be opening Boston Fake Festival this year with their set of original tunes which promises to get people in the mood.

Boston-based None Of A Kind will be delivering some catchy covers, and playing some of their own original music too.

Another local band, Absence of Freud, will also be making their debut appearance on the Fake Festival scene with a set list of covers that include anthems to get everyone singing along.

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!”

Into The Flames, from Boston, is an original band who regularly feature on local radio stations and in gigs around the region.

With the lead vocals of Danni, Careless Chemistry is a five-piece original band that has been gigging regionally for a few years.

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.

“Being a festival organization, we like to encourage local artists to get involved with Fake Festivals as the support acts to the main tribute bands.

“We understand how difficult it is nowadays for new artists to make it in the industry, so we wanted to provide a platform for them in their own regional area where we can help them gain further exposure.”

“You just never know who’s going to turn up to a Fake Festival.”

Tickets are £17 adult, £12.50 young person and £50 family.
