Leeds band The Pigeon Detectives are set to join the bill of Pontefract’s Crooked Ways music festival this summer, as organisers announce the full line-up.

They will join Peter Hook, Grandmaster Flash and The Enemy on the main stage, while organisers also announced bands Fenech Soler, Yashin, The Lafontaines, China Rats, Jim Lockey and the Solemn Sun, Middleman and more to the bill.

Crooked Ways is in its second year, and takes place at Pontefract Park on Saturday June 1. It brings together a diverse range of artists, performers and attractions, with a combination of internationally acclaimed artists, the best in up and coming talent and the chance for local acts to perform to big crowds.

The festival is named in homage to the 1913 book The Town of Crooked Ways by JS Fletcher, which satirises life in Pontefract. Tickets are available now from www.crookedways.co.uk and cost £35 adult, £17.50 for under 13s and free for under threes.
