The cream of Doncaster’s music scene is set to rock around the clock next month after being added to the bill at a huge music festival.

The annual Fake Festival takes place at Sandall Park on May 18 with a trio of tribute acts topping the bill – but organisers have just announced the rest of the bill with a string of up-and-coming Doncaster bands all set to take centre stage.

Organiser Jez Lee said: “We’ve been showcasing local unsigned talent on the Fake Festivals tour for seven years now, and it’s been remarkable the huge success some of our original artists have had.

“It’s great for the artists as they get to experience a fully equipped and professional festival stage that you would see at events such as Glastonbury and Reading.”

From 1pm onwards, festival goers will be able to catch the selected five local support in action.

Jack’s House, a four-piece band from Hatfield Woodhouse, will kick things off, followed by Down To Earth, an original band from Doncaster.

The Pilots are no stranger to Fake Festivals, but from various other bands, while well known to the audience will be The 48Ks.

Completing the line-up will be cover band Goodfellas, before The Killers tribute band The Fillers and fellow tribute acts, Really Hot Chili Peppers, and Kings of Lyon take to the stage.

Tickets are available from Fake Festivals and are priced at £17.50 for adults, £10 for 10- to 17-year-olds, and £45 for a family ticket.

Tickets for under 10s are free.
