Full festival line up announced


PROMOTERS for next month’s hotly-anticipated Crooked Ways festival in Pontefract have revealed the full festival line-up.

Internationally-acclaimed rockers Razorlight will be joined by Sheffield indie band Reverend and the Makers, Manchester electro trio The Whip and veteran Leeds band The Sunshine Underground at the one day music event on May 26.

The big name bands will be joined across Pontefract Park’s three stages by eclectic up-and-comer King Charles, festival regulars Club Smith, north-east duo Hyde and Beast, and two-piece blues-punk act, Wet Nuns.

Scott Ward, Crooked Ways promoter, said: “We are delighted to have established artists such as Razorlight, Reverend and the Makers and The Sunshine Underground perform at our inaugural event, especially as all three acts will perform new material.

“Also, being able to see artists such as Wet Nuns, King Charles, and Club Smith play our town is very exciting.”

Razorlight will headline the main stage with Reverend and the Makers, King Charles and Hyde and Beast in support.

Club Smith and The Whip will open up for The Sunshine Underground when they headline The Institution stage.

Local talent including Jacks Attic, Glass Caves and Road to Horizon will play the Crooked Ways Presents stage, which aims to promote the best in emerging talent.

Full running order will be made later this month. Visit www.crookedways.co.uk for tickets and information.
