Peter Crouch Wants To Host 'Crouchfest 2' Festival
Peter Crouch says he would "love" to host another festival after the triumph of 'Crouchfest' in May - and make it even bigger next time.
The former England striker joined co-hosts Tom Fordyce and Chris Stark on stage at The O2 in London following the unprecedented success of 'That Peter Crouch Podcast'.
The event involved live music and special guests, including Liam Gallagher, Katherine Jenkins, Tom Grennan and You Me At Six and received rave reviews.

And 38-year-old told SPORTbible: "I'd love to do it again and I'd like to go bigger.
"When I was a kid I never thought I'd play at Wembley. I've done things that I never thought were possible, stuff I dreamt about.
"Then, off the back of that, you sit in a pub and chat to a few mates on a podcast and then you're in front of 3,000 people at the festival with Liam Gallagher, Katherine Jenkins Tom Grennan. It was surreal."

Crouch was speaking to SPORTbible at an NFL promotional event at Wembley, where he was put through his paces by Jacksonville Jaguars legend Tony Boselli in a number of training drills.
He was also asked whether he prefers Glastonbury or his own festival - and there was only one answer.
"Crouchfest is more niche but better. Glasto's gone commercial. We've gone underground. We're bringing the real sh*t," he said.
CrouchFest 2019 wouldn't have been complete without a Peter Crouch Robot. The line up wasn't bad either Liam Gallagher, Tom Grennan, Katherine Jenkins and You Me At 6. What a night!! #CrouchFest pic.twitter.com/vtu7c9MGwX- Kieran Pallet (@kieran_pallet) June 15, 2019
Expect to see more rapping, downing pints and trademark robot celebrations if he decides to do it all again.
