Local support bands announced for Tynemouth Fake Festival

A TALENTED line-up of local support bands has been announced for the inaugural north east Fake Festival which takes place in Tynemouth next month.

Taking place at the Percy Park Rugby Club, Tynemouth Fake Festival will not only see performances from internationally acclaimed tributes to Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings Of Leon but also a showcase of some of the most exciting artists in the region.

From 12.30pm onwards in the Fake Festivals marquee, festival goers will have the chance to catch five local support acts handpicked for their talent before they hit the big time.

Second Day will perform a range of covers from AC/DC to Stereophonics while The Hostage Rescue Team entertain with their style of guitar orientated rock with experimental piano and orchestral sounds

Victory Mansions’ sound combines heavy guitars and strong melodies with an eclectic mix of styles, while Peculiar Disco Moves mix grooves and witty lyrics to produce their own unique sound and four-piece Artisam perform their original music.

Organiser Jez Lee said: “Fake Festivals is the prefect platform for unsigned artists as they not only get to showcase their talent in front of a friendly local crowd, but they can also take advantage of the fully equipped stage that you would fine at other festivals such as Leeds and Reading –something not a lot of unsigned artists ever have the opportunity to do.”

Tickets are available from www.fakefestivals.co.uk or Percy Park Rugby Club, Priory News, Tynemouth and Hound Dog Music and Newsforce, both in Whitley Bay.
