Pigeon Detectives Added to Tidal Waves Festival



Another name has been added to the line-up for the two-day Tidal Waves Beach Music Festival in Bridlington in June: indie rock band The Pigeon Detectives from Leeds will be performing at the event at South Cliff beach, on Saturday 10 June.

Formed way back in 2002, the platinum-selling band released their fifth studio album, ‘Broken Glances’ in February of this year. The band enjoyed a meteoric rise, starting in Leeds, where they signed with local label ‘Dance to the Radio’. Their first record ‘Wait for Me’ went on to achieve sales of half a million. They announced their return in autumn 2016 with a new single and a sold-out UK tour, and have also just completed a European Tour.

Kirsty Dingle, festival director, said: “ I am delighted that we have been able to add yet another big name to the line-up for the Saturday at Tidal Waves. The Pigeon Detectives complete this superb line-up : we now have no fewer than five well-known artists, and a wide range of local music as well!”

International trance act Enigma UK open the festival on the Friday evening; sharing billing with the renowned local folk duo, Seafret. Also appearing will be country singer Gracie Falls, indie and Brit-pop group Capital Eye and alternative female-fronted guitar band The Brontes, and local singer/songwriter Jack Parker.

As well as The Pigeon Detectives, Saturday’s programme will see The Hoosiers, Reverend and the Makers and Toploader supported by local rock group Big Me, Hull-based alternative ska-core band Counting Coins, Bridlington’s three-piece soulful mod group Page 45, rock, blues and indie group from Hull The Raywells, five-piece guitar-driven post rock indie pop band Vague. Louder than Life, an audience-participation samba and kettle-drum group will also add to the mix during the event.

Tickets are now available for the full weekend priced at £50 for adults, or £30 for children. For the Friday night only, tickets cost £16. For the Saturday only, the adult ticket is £39. There is also a child ticket available for the Saturday only, priced at £20. There will also be a platform for wheelchair users (restricted to 30 plus one carer/friend).  Tickets can be booked via bridspa.com, or the Bridlington Spa box office on 01262 678258, and in person.
