Jarvis Cocker, The Pigeon Detectives and The Feeling are set to perform at the 2019 UCI Road World Championships Fan Zone in Harrogate.

Jarvis Cocker is among the world’s most famous Yorkshiremen having fronted the legendary group Pulp who sold over 10 million records across the globe. Cocker will be performing a DJ set in the Fan Zone – which is located on The Stray – at 8:30pm on Friday 27 September after the Men’s Under-23 Road Race.

The Pigeon Detectives then take the stage at 7:40pm on Saturday once the Women’s Elite Road Race has concluded. This Leeds-based indie rock band have been one of the county’s most popular bands over the last two decades, producing two top-10 albums, one of which (‘Wait For Me’) went platinum in the UK.

The Feeling will help round off the Championships in style on Sunday 29 September at 6:30pm after the Men’s Elite Road Race. Hits such as ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Love it When You Call’ and ‘Never Be Lonely’ will have fans singing along to this British-based five-piece who have enjoyed four top-10 singles and one number-one album over the course of their glittering career.

We’re delighted to have booked these amazing musicians and they will definitely add to the carnival atmosphere inside the Fan Zone. Their performances will be worth waiting for once the racing has concluded and I’m sure they’ll appeal to cycling and non-cycling fans alike.
