This weekend sees the return of The Lakes Festival.

The festival has taken place annually since 2012 and this year’s line up certainly will not disappoint music fans.

On Friday and Saturday, a number of big names will be gracing the stage at Sycamore Lakes, Burgh-Le-Marsh.

Friday acts include: The Vigilantes, Revolver, Them Lewis Boys, and headliners Scouting For Girls. On Saturday acts such as Liz Wallace, Ellie Dibben, Toploader, and The Shires will help bring the festival to an end.

Crissie Rhodes from The Shires said: “We are having the best summer playing live to fantastic audiences up and down the country and can’t wait to get on stage at Lakes Festival this weekend. We very nearly didn’t make it to Glastonbury as Ben’s fiancée gave birth that morning, of all mornings!”

Ben (Earle) added: “We’ve been hard at work on our new album and couldn’t wait to get back on that tour bus and play some of the new music we’ve been working on. We’re both looking forward to seeing how fans at Lake Festival like the new tracks.”

Jose Giraldez is owner of The Lakes Restaurant and is organising this year’s event.

He said: “It is going to be great. The setting is perfect, as bands can play close to the water. There is never anything of this kind in the area.”

Food and drink will be available at the festival, with a real ale tent, barbecue, and hog roast being among the attractions.

A spectacular firework display is set to bring Saturday night’s festivities to an end.

Gates will open at 5pm on Friday and 1.30pm on Saturday, with the option of weekend camping for festival goers at £15 per night for two people and £3 per night for additional campers.

Advance tickets are priced at £28 for a single day or £45 for two days. They can be purchased from The Lakes Restauraunt, Skegness’ Embassy Theatre, or
