PEOPLE are being offered the chance to enjoy the experience of a major music festival without the massive expense at an event.
The Lichfield Fake Festival is set to take place on Saturday, August 16, at Beacon Park and will feature some of the UK's finest tributes to Queen, Oasis and Coldplay.
The event costs £20 and people will be able to see the three tribute bands and also five support bands.
"The atmosphere is always electric at Fake Festivals, and this one will be no different," said Lee Storey, license holder for Lichfield Fake Festival.
"This will be our second visit to Lichfield on the tour, and we can't wait to get the tent rocking. It's a great opportunity to see some of your favourite bands without the high price tag or having to travel too far."
One of the headlining bands will be Coldplace, tribute to Coldplay.
"Make sure you stick around for these guys, as they are bringing the full Coldplay laser light show to the Fake Festivals stage," said Lee
"Having performed across the UK and Europe, these guys will be rocking out the tent and bringing you the complete Coldplay stage show."
"Fake Festivals is a great concept, and we always love being part of the tour.
"It's a great chance for us to perform in the UK and to also catch up with friends from the other tribute bands too.
"The Fake Festivals tour has gone from strength to strength each year, and this year with the Big Fake Festival, it's guaranteed to be a winner."
Performing alongside Coldplace will be Supreme Queen and Oasish, as well as five support bands from across the area.
He added: "Not only will festival-goers be able to see their favourite bands perform, but they will also have a chance to meet them as they wander around the marquee.
"Fake Festivals really does get you closer to the music and the people."
Tickets are priced at £20 per adult, £10 for 10 to 17-year-olds and £50 for a family ticket, with under-nines free.
