In seven years, Coldplace has put more than 300 gigs under its belt across the length and breadth of the UK, and abroad in countries such as Malta, Dominican Republic, Netherlands, Romania, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Turkey and Ireland.
Chris Martin sound-a-like and look-a-like lead singer Shane Crofts said: "We played at Meridian Park a year ago and it had a great atmosphere.
"It's always good to perform back home because the crowd is always fantastic and plus after the gig, my journey back home isn't long!
"I think the secret to a successful support band has to be dedication and trying to get it just right.
"When we perform, we give 110 per cent and every time we play, we are very critical when we come off stage to try to improve."
The band also comprises James Brown, as Johnny Buckland, Asa Crofts, as Guy Berriman, and Wayne Birch, as Will Champion.
Their reputation is rapidly spreading as being the best and most authentic tribute to Coldplay, with mentions on Sky News and on BBC Radio.
Shane, who is a window cleaner by trade, said: "I think my favourite song to perform has to be God Put A Smile Upon Your Face because it is slightly more rockier.
"I saw Coldplay perform it at the 02 Arena and Chris threw his guitar on the floor during the finale, but I don't think I can afford a broken guitar!
"The day after the Meridian gig, we will be performing at Tribfest and to a crowd of about 40,000 people.
"Then we will be going to Holland, Ireland and Spain – so we won't be back home for a while!"
Another performer at CleeFest includes the Mardis Gras carnival sound of Sambalada steel drums, whistles and Latino rhythm.
If you are feeling peckish, there will be food stalls representing cuisine from around the world as well as the more traditional seaside refreshments.
A fully licensed bar will have with a great selection of beers and soft drinks on offer, plus real ale.
There will also be a skatepark with professional tutors, inflatables, face-painting, a fashion tent with catwalk, free running tutoring, donkey rides and stalls by local businesses. More bands will be announced soon.
