Following a triumphant return to the charts, the indie rock three-piece confirm Delamere Forest show for June
Doves are the latest act to be confirmed for Forest Live 2021. The unique outdoor concert series will host the Doves at Delamere Forest in Cheshire on Sun 20 Jun 2021. Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on Fri 6 Nov.
Doves, who hail from Manchester, made a triumphant return to the charts in 2020 following a ten-year hiatus. Their new record The Universal Want reached number 1 on the UK charts and marked the second of their five albums to do so.
The Forest Live gig will be one of the first opportunities to hear the Manchester band perform new material from the record as well songs from their rich catalogue of indie rock anthems.
Forest Live is a one-of-a-kind concert series that brings a specially-curated music programme to the UK's forests. The summer series is renowned for transforming forests into atmospheric outdoor music venues.
For 2021, Keane, Rag'n'Bone Man, Madness and Doves have been confirmed for the series, with more to be announced. All income generated from Forest Live ticket sales goes towards Forestry England's efforts in sustaining the UK's forests. Every year they plant around 8 million trees and care for the nation's 1,500 woods and forests whilst welcoming 230 million visitors.
Doves perform at Delamere Forest in Cheshire on Sun 20 Jun as part of Forest Live 2021. Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on Fri 6 Nov.
