Music fans are in for a treat this year at Lichfield Fake Festival on Saturday, 16th August, with an incredible line up of local talent showcasing their music prowess.
Nuclear Minogue, Stubblemelt, Muse Inc, Tom Woodman and Marquis Drive will be sharing the stage with some of the UK’s best tribute bands inside the huge marquee at Beacon Park.
“It’s really encouraging that Lichfield has some great artists to support our festival, but this makes choosing them difficult,” explains Lee Storey, licence holder for Lichfield Fake Festival. “We have a rosta of bands that we know are extremely good and very professional, but we always like to look out for new talent too. We don’t just randomly pick a band, but we actually go to gigs to get an idea of how they would perform on our big stage, and also to assess their talent.”
Nuclear Minogue will be providing the warm up before Coldplace take to the stage. Exploding onto the stage, they will be pumping up the party with their popular set of covers that have their own spin on them. Expect to hear metal, punk, pop, rock, grunge and even ska. Miss them at your peril.
Stubblemelt are new to the Fake Festivals tour, and they balance good fun with music. They verge on the wonderfully ridiculous, but the songs they produce are heartfelt chunks of rock that shake the floor, and catchy riffs that stay in your head for weeks on end.
Prepare to be rocked with Muse Inc, the tribute to Muse. Get down the front to be wowed by this great act who will bring the stage to life.
Fans of Jimmy Hendrix? Tom Woodman’s songs are so personal, heartfelt and eccentric, they will remind you of a young Jimmy Hendrix. Make sure you are there early to catch this talented singer songwriter.
Marquis Drive will be opening this year’s Lichfield Fake Festival, and if you like 90’s Britpop, then you are going to love these guys. Kicking off the party in true festival style, they will certainly get you in the mood.
