The final preparations are taking place for a two day music festival which is coming to Napton.

Daventry bands Dead Frequency, The Bombardiers and The Greg Coulson Band will play at the 10th anniversary of the Napton Festival.

There will be tributes to The Stone Roses and Take That as the headline acts for the festival, which runs from Friday, July 8, to Saturday, July 9.

A spokesman for the festival said: “We promised another spectacular festival and we think this year could top it all.

“Napton Festival was conceived in 2006 and has built on experience to put on what must be one of the best small, family-friendly festivals around.

“The festival goes from strength to strength and has supported local causes and music in schools again over the past year.”

There will be a bit of attitude from The Total Stone Roses on the festival’s opening night.

A spokesman said: “The band are all in their early to mid-20s, bringing the same passion, vigour, arrogance and charisma that only the young have, the old want and that cannot be faked.”

They play all of the best Roses material including She Bangs The Drums, Fools Gold and Waterfall.

Dead Frequency will also play on the opening night. They are a high energy glam punk band and mix the showmanship of Van Halen with the sound of Green Day.

Also appearing on the Friday are The Ellipsis, 4th Labyrinth, Warwick Junction and Jolly Rogers.

Take That Live Tribute Band are the headline act for the Saturday night and are as close to the real Take That as possible with their costumes, vocals, choreography and appearance.

The Bombardies, a rock blues band from Daventry, appear on Saturday. The are made up of Barclay Quarton on vocals and guitar, Phil Wilkes on drums, Richard Box on bass and Ben Hood on lead guitar.

Long Buckby-based The Greg Coulson Band has been described as one to watch by the organisers. The front man is influenced by the likes of Ray Charles and Steve Winwood.

Also appearing on Saturday are Feral Ghost, Grace Solero, Gun Hill Riffs, Rosellys, Matilda Pratt, The Rejects, Robinson Stone, Sophie DeBattista and The Redhills.
