Party-goers at this year’s Bingley Music Live can now have the ‘pick of the pops’.
Tickets are selling so well for the three-day event from August 29-31 that festival organisers have decided they can now tell people when acts are playing.
“They can then pick which day best suits their musical tastes and book a ticket,” said Phil Barker, Bradford Council’s assistant director for sport and leisure.
Full weekend tickets cost £49 plus booking fee but this year is the earliest that day tickets have also been released for sale.
Headlining the main stage on Friday are 90s Britpop stalwarts Shed Seven with special guest Gaz Coombes of Supergrass fame. Other acts include rising star MNEK, The Selector, Joel Compass and Coasts.
On the second stage will be Eliza and Bear, Champs, We are Catchers, Prides and Woman’s Hour.
The party hots up again on the Saturday with one of the UK’s biggest dance anthem hit-makers Example headlining the main stage.
Keeping him company will be Gorgon City, The Strypes, Jess Glynne, Bi Polar Sunshine, Catfish and the Bottlemen, John Lennon McCullagh, Dexters and Avec Sans with power ballad DJs Ultimate Power hitting the decks between acts.
Saturday’s second stage will see performances from critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Nuck Mulvey, Natasha North, Young Kato, Renegade Brass Band, Emma Garrett, Bird to Beast, Bridie Jackson and the Arbour, Warme and The Mispers.
Six times Grammy Award nominees The Pet Shop Boys, who have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, will bring the festival to its final night climax on the Sunday.
Others sharing the bill with them are Naughty Boy, Simon & Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene playing acoustic versions of their hits, Chloe Howl, Etta Bond, D/C, Night Engine and Charlie Cunningham.
The final acts on the second stage will be The South, Kyla La Grange, The Wytches, Neon Waltz, Ramona Flowers, Georgia Harrup, Port Isla, Carla and The Sherlocks.
