Askern Music Festival News
The Pigeon Detectives rushed the Askern stage and were a ball of energy throughout. Frontman Matt Bowman left no inch of stage uncovered as he bounced from one side to the other. The band leaned heavily on their first album Wait For Me, ten years old this year, but also covered the rest of their back catalogue throughout their hour long set.
Highlights including but not limited to ‘This is an Emergency’, ‘I Found Out’ and ‘Animal’. Between handing the crowd beers from backstage and climbing the rigging, Bowman makes for an engaging frontman and a great day was had by all.
See you down at the front next year Askern!
The last time I stopped by Askern Music Festival it was an eye opening experience. The people of Askern came out in their droves, squeezed into ill-fitting tank tops and vests, pints in hand and small children running around with ice cream on their faces. And I loved it. Upon arriving at Askern Miners Club this time it is clear that the whole thing has a much more middle class vibe to it. It no longer feels like we have crashed the Royston Vasey town fair. This is the price you pay for success I guess…
