Peter Crouch's 'Crouchfest' Was Everything We Expected And More

Who needs Glastonbury, Parklife, Leeds or 'T in the Park' when you've got 'Crouchfest'?

At the end of May it was announced that, after the back of the success of 'That Peter Crouch Podcast', Crouch, Tom Fordyce and BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark would host their own festival with live music and special guests.

Tickets were priced at a dirt-cheap £12.25 for the event and it all went down at the indigo at The O2 in London last night.

As we know, cult hero Crouch is prone to a bit of Festival madness and his gig in front of 2,800 people did not disappoint.

It all kicked off with a surprise appearance from Liam Gallagher and that well and truly set the bar for the rest of the night.

There were performances from the likes of Tom Grennan and You Me At Six but it was Crouchy who was the star of the show.

The former England striker entertained fans rapping, downing pints, performing his trademark 'Robot' and asking fans to guess his pin number.

Incredibly, opera singer Katherine Jenkins was also on the bill and belted out the Champions League anthem for all those in attendance.

It was a festival like no other but for a tenner, it looked like have an absolute bargain. Bring on Crouchy's headline slot at Glasto next year...
