This summer's festivals continue with a family event to raise money for charity this weekend.

DUCKFEST will be held over two days at Hintock Farm in Charminster near Dorchester. Gates open on Friday, August 5 at 12 noon and Saturday, August 6 at 10am. Both evening events finish at 1am.

The event is now in its fifth year and will have live music, stalls, fun for the children, food and refreshments.

Friday kicks off the main stage with Loose Connections, a long standing function party band, from 5pm to 6pm, followed by the 5 O'clock Heroes from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, who, despite not being a tribute band in the truest sense, aim to play with the same 'fire and skill' that The Jam displayed in their golden years.

Dorset Echo:

Next are the Glass Spiders, from 8pm to 9pm, who are billed as 'pure 70s nostalgia'.

Finally Friday's headliner will be N.U.M.B (Never Underestimate Musical Belief). This south west based urban reggae/hip hop band will be playing from 9.30pm to 11pm.

Saturday's main stage will start off with Regulation 9, an Indie/Punk/Rock band based in Weymouth who will play from 12 noon to 1pm, followed by That BritPop Band from 1.30pm to 2.30pm, a 'no holds barred' tribute to 90s Britpop. From 3pm to 4pm the Masau'u, a original roots, blues and folk band will be playing with Mad Hatters a Ska/Reggae based band coming after from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. Rock and punk cover band Lithium will be playing next from 6pm to 7pm, with three piece rockabilly band The Delray Rockets playing from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

The final main stage headliner of the festival will be The Killaz UK from 9.30pm to 11pm. They are a tribute of rock band The Killers who are well known for their songs 'Mr. Brightside' and 'When You Were Young'.

The event aims to raise money for and promote the work of its organiser The Ducks and Drakes Cancer Trust, which raises awareness of cancer, specifically bowel cancer, in young people in Dorset.

Tickets can be bought at the gate or online, with online sales stopping at 11.30pm on Thursday, August 4. Ticket prices vary but a family (two adults and two under 16s) weekend ticket costs £90 and an adult weekend ticket costing £35, with separate tickets available for camping (tents and campervans).
