You’ve heard of Radio 1’s Introducing stage and the campaign for new music? Head down to Sandall Park Fake Festival this Saturday at Sandall Park, for their very own introducing stage, with some of the hottest new and emerging talent in the region.
This year, Sandall Park Fake Festival will be showcasing some of the most exciting artists in the region who will no doubt be taking the music industry by storm in the future.
Festival goers will have the opportunity to see a hand-picked selection of these artists from 12.30pm.
“We feel that Fake Festivals is the perfect platform for unsigned artists to showcase their talent in front of a friendly local crowd,” says Jez Lee, organizer of Fake Festivals. “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 of.”
“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.”
The support artists performing at this year’s Sandall Park Fake Festival are:
Goodfellas, an exceptional covers band who are no strangers to the Fake Festivals circuit, and who are back by popular demand. Expect to hear some of the best indie anthems performed with such energy and passion by this local band.
Winding Sheet are another local band from Doncaster who have already completed two UK tours in just over a year. They are a four piece original band with a great edge to their music which has enabled them to play alongside some fantastic bands, including one of NME’s favourites, My Luminaries.
Covers band, Bloodshot, are from Doncaster and are five friends who just simply love music. They pride themselves on the classis anthems they perform such as The Beatles, REM and ACDC – something for everyone. They have a great set list of some of the most well known tunes around, and promise to get you rocking in the marquee.
48Ks is an exciting original band from Doncaster that are eager to make it in the music industry. They have been gigging around the UK, receiving great response from their tunes and building up a huge following. Make sure you come down early so you don’t miss these guys, as they will be making headlines in the not too distant future.
Cheap Spirits have just released their newest recording, and are the perfect sound to get you in that festival mood. Their original tunes capture the crowd’s attention, giving them a great following, so watch out for them.
“You just never know who’s going to turn up to a Fake Festival,” continues Jez. “We’ve had professional 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 come and check them out. So the support artists need to ensure they put on the best performance they can as you just don’t know who will be in the crowd.”
As well as the supports, the festival will see the tribute acts to Blondie, Oasis and the Foo Fighters headline the festival.
