Following a sell-out UK tour in 2017, Leeds indie-rockers The Pigeon Detectives are bringing the party to Warton Music Festival as headliners for 2018.
Formed in 2002 The Pigeon Detectives are Matt Bowman on lead vocals, Oliver Main and Ryan Wilson on guitars, Dave Best on Bass, and Jimmi Naylor on drums. Friends from school and having known one another since they were 12 the band enjoyed a meteoric rise starting in Leeds where they signed with Local label Dance to the radio, and growing into the UK Music scene rapidly with their first record 'Wait for Me' going on to sell over half a million records and resulting in headlines at London's Alexandra Palace and Leeds' Millennium Square arena 1 year after release.
The band will join an exciting line-up comprising of well-established and rising acts from across the country including; South London’s finest Ska outfit – The Dualers, East coast hard rockers Scream Serenity, the UK’s best Oasis covers band Oasish, plus many, many more!
With its roots firmly grounded in the local Midlands music scene, Warton Music Festival has been delivering great line ups since 2007. Founded by a collective of music enthusiasts, the festival has showcased some of the finest bands and solo artists over its ten year span- selling out its original venue each time.
The festival grew year upon year until finally in 2017 it was time to expand. Relocating to a new 15 acre spot at Bentley Farm, the festival evolved into a three day event with on-site camping and two stages filled with bands from across the UK.
