Aggressive Management and Dennis Hobson Promotions are delighted to announce that headlining this year’s Owls in the Park music stage are Sheffield band Polkadodge.
This four-piece energetic indie band have been likened to Johnny Marr riffing with the Killers and you can see why. This band are genuinely on the verge of big things as they prepare for a full national UK tour later in the year after three high profile Tramlines gigs this summer.
Having spent the last six months writing their new album, Polkadodge are set to take their music out to the UK public with a full national tour, including a number of big London dates.
