Headline act Oasish, which formed in 2004, have gone on to become one of the UK's most sought-after Oasis tribute bands.
Paul Higginson, lead singer of the band, said: "This will be our third year on the Fake Festivals tour and we can't wait to get back on it.
"Expect to see the full Oasis show. I don't do anything by halves, so the attitude, swagger and arrogance will be on stage in abundance, along with some of the finest British anthems ever written."
The event offers festival-goers the chance to experience the whole festival atmosphere, with high-tech light and sound systems.
The event will feature host food stalls, face painting, a bucking bronco, a bungee run and a bouncing castle.
Jez Lee, founder of Fake Festivals, said the event offered artists the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a large festival audience.
"I set up Fake Festivals six years ago so that people could enjoy their own festival right on their doorstep and watch live performances from some of their favourite bands," he said.
"Fake Festivals is the perfect platform for unsigned artists, as they not only get to showcase their talent in front of a friendly local crowd, but can also take advantage of a fully equipped stage like you would find at other festivals such as Leeds and Reading. We know how difficult it is to break into the music industry nowadays, so we are keen to help up-and-coming local artists get some exposure."
