Hartlepool Tall Ships

Looks like Doves will be playing part of the Hartlepool Tall Ships celebration:

Hartlepool will be centre stage between Saturday 7th and Tuesday 10th August when it hosts the magnificent Tall Ships fleet. The Hartlepool Tall Ships Celebration will be one of England’s biggest free events in 2010 with up to one million visitors expected from Friday 6th until Monday 9th August 2010 at Hartlepool Marina.


Acts include Doves, Echo and The Bunnymen, Ocean Colour Scene, Sheelanagig, Stornoway, Goldheart Assembly, Golden Animals, The Woven Project, The Dave Moseley Band, Lithium Speed Dementia, The Standards, The White Negroes, and The Runwells.

Music Promoter Andy Kelly, who has been working with the Tall Ships team to secure the bands, said: “It’s great to have Ocean Colour Scene confirmed, they’re one of the best live bands in the country! Echo and The Bunnymen are still as effortlessly cool as ever!”
