"Fake Festivals is the perfect platform for unsigned artists to
showcase their talent in front of a friendly local crowd," says Jez
Lee, organiser of Fake Festivals. "They get to perform on a main
stage with a state of the art sound and lighting system -something
not a lot of unsigned artists ever get the opportunity to do."
"We know just how difficult it is to break into the music
industry nowadays and so we're keen to help local artists get some
exposure. Plus, you never know who'll turn up on our tour -we've
had a professional from the music industry come along to check out
unsigned artists and even the news editor of NME!"
Sandall Park Fake Festival's line-up this year includes
Coldplace, Kazabian and Basketcase (Green Day tribute).
