Band prepares for biggest gig
A band are looking forward to playing at a music festival which will attract 15,000 music lovers from around the region.
Indie rockers The Conspiracy Club are one of 160 bands picked to play at this year’s Glastonbudget festival.
The event, held from May 24 to 26 in Wymeswold, between Melton Mowbray and Loughborough, boasts six stages and attracts 15,000 people every year.
Bourne Grammar School pupils Harry Preen, 17, Dom Darmanin, 17, Caleb Carver, 14, and James Noble, 16, formed The Conspiracy Club in September 2011.
They have been making their name around Stamford and Bourne ever since but the festival promises to be their biggest crowd yet.
Singer Harry, who also gigs as a solo artist, said: “I don’t think we have done anything on this scale before so it will be interesting to see how it goes.
“We are going to try and make it sound good.”
Harry, guitarist Dom, drummer Caleb and bassist James take their influences from some of the biggest names, such as The Stone Roses, Oasis and The Killers.
Their set mixes covers of indie classics with their own material. The four-piece have been attracting rave reviews from their gigs in 2012 and hope to use Glastonbudget to push them on to bigger and better things.
Harry added: “There will be 15,000 people going to the festival and hopefully we will get a good slot on stage.
“We are looking forward to trying to get some more people to listen to our music.
“This year we have been trying to book a ton of gigs around the local area.
“We might try and record some of our own stuff towards the end of the year and try and play a few more festivals in the summer.”
Glastonbudget mixes upcoming bands with some of the world’s best tribute bands.
This year’s festival will be headlined by Madness tribute One Step Behind, Queen tribute Mercury and Oasis tribute Oasish.
