Aspiring artists are preparing to take to the stage at Tynemouth Fake Festival next month.

On Saturday, May 4, five local bands will be showcasing their talents at this year’s festival as they take to the main stage.

The Longsands, Afterlife, The Panic Report, Victory Mansions and Saint and the Cynics will join headline acts Oasish, Kazabian and Blondied.

“It’s so difficult to narrow the list of supporting artists down to the final five, as there are so many good ones out there in our region,” said organiser Bec Cottrell.

“We have so many bands approaching us to play, so we have to be really focused on who would best fit the bill.”

Tynemouth Fake Festival will also welcome back Victory Mansions, a five-piece original band from Newcastle.

Bec added: “A refreshing change with a female fronted band, Saint and the Cynics are sure to get your feet moving and your heart pounding.”

The support artists take to the stage from 1pm.

Tickets priced at £20 for adults, are available from www.fakefestivals.co.uk
