Reliably informed

Stockton’s original multi-venue music festival, Stockton Calling, have announced the first of their headliners for the 2022 event, taking place on Saturday 16th April.

Energetic Yorkshire rockers The Pigeon Detectives bring their indie anthems to The Point at ARC. It’ll be a homecoming of sorts, as frontman Matt Bowan was born in Middlesbrough, and the band enjoy a firm fanbase in the region.

Jimmy Beck, one of the festival organisers from KU Promotions said about the announcement: “We are absolutely delighted with The Pigeon Detectives signing up for Stockton Calling. We wanted an act that would come in and raise the roof – and we know they can certainly do that! The lads have been busy this year with a sell-out tour plus playing the main stages at festivals like Neighbourhood. Lucky for us, they are big supporters of our event and with local links it didn’t take much persuading them to come back!”

Expect announcements to come thick and fast over the coming weeks, as further line-ups get confirmed for The Georgian Theatre, KU Bar, The Green Room, Sticky’s, NE Volume Music Bar, Stockton Globe, The Storytellers and The Vault. Stay tuned!
