BRIGHOUSE band Embrace will play a major festival this weekend after an 11th- hour plea for help.
The band, which has been out of the public eye for three years, are replacing Jet as second on the bill at the V Festival in Weston Park, Staffordshire.
The event will be Embrace's only festival appearance this year.
The band were invited to join the bill late on Thursday night.
Lead singer Danny McNamara said: "It was a bit of a shock to get the call - but I can't wait! We're just going to go on there and enjoy it.
"There's no pressure. We're like the underdogs in the Cup Final!
"Mind you, I'm glad we did the `warm-up' gig last Sunday!"
This was a secret gig at Bradley Wood Scout Hut near Brighouse.
Australian rockers Jet pulled out because of the death of Nic and Chris Cester's father.
The V Festival takes place simultaneously in Chelmsford and Staffordshire and features over 50 bands.
The line-ups, which swap venues overnight, include Amy Winehouse, Jamelia and The Zutons.
