“It’s going to be an amazing festival.”

Internationally-acclaimed bands will make their way to Pontefract Park at the weekend to take part in the second annual Crooked Ways festival.

The Enemy, The Pigeon Detectives, Peter Hook and the Light, and Grandmaster Flash are just a few of the acts headlining the main stage at Saturday’s music event.

Band Max Raptor, who played at Leeds and Reading Festival last year, said they were excited to be part of this year’s line up.

Singer Will Ray, whose mum is originally from Pontefract, said: “We haven’t played around here before so we are really looking forward to it.

“It’s going to be amazing.”

Other bands Fenech Soler, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Glass Caves, Jack’s Attic and The D.O.T. are also playing.

At last year’s event, Razorlight, Reverend & the Makers and The Sunshine Underground graced the stage.
