THREE bands who featured in this year's Red Stripe Cambridge Band Competition at The Junction will play at the Lodestar Festival, Cambridge-shire's new indie-rock festival.
The increasingly popular Flamboyant Bella, and my band Under The Streetlamp (from St Ives) will join Royston's Fugazirum on the Trixie Tree Stage (supported by the Arts Council).
Lodestar, at Sunnyridge Farm where Doug's family have farmed for generations, is for him, the realisation of a teenage dream.
Up and coming unsigned bands will play on the Escalator Music Stage and MP3 sticks of their music will be handed out to fans.
