Peter Crouch to hold his very own music festival

'Crouchfest' will take place on 15 June

Peter Crouch is a legend, we all know that. The former Tottenham, Liverpool and Stoke City striker has never taken himself seriously, even though he has represented England at two World Cups and played in a Champions League final with Liverpool in 2007.

His jokey personality, which sees him regularly rip into himself, has made him a fan favourite among football supporters. His Twitter account - which boasts over 650,000 followers - often produces tweets which go viral, including this hilarious jibe at FIFA back in 2014.

And who could forget when he posted this picture feeding two giraffes and captioned it with "Summer for me is about time with family" - gold. Never change, Peter.

Now, we can reveal that the 38-year-old is going to be holding his very own music festival next month, called 'Crouchfest'. The Burnley forward came up with the idea whilst recording his extremely popular podcast 'That Peter Crouch Podcast', which he hosts alongside Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark and BBC chief sports writer Tom Fordyce.

Now in series two, the podcast has been such a hit with listeners due to its hilarious nature that the trio will hold their own music festival at London's Indigo at The 02 on 15 June. Standing tickets to the festival are now on sale, costing £12.25 each.

It's understood that the initial name was set to be 'Crouchella', which would have been brilliant. However, due to it being so close the name Coachella - the annual Californian music festival held solely for social media influencers - legal complications seem to have put an end to that idea.

Though no artists have been confirmed as of yet, one of Crouch's favourite bands - Leicester-based band Kasabian - are expected to feature. Here's the famous video of the former England international throwing what can only be described as some 'questionable' shapes to them at the Isle of Wight Festival a few years back, enjoy.

More of this on June 15 please, Crouchy.
