Councillor Andrew Thornton (pictured), the Council's Executive Member for Sport and Leisure, said: "With Bingley Music Live we are determined to build on our Attitude is Everything Bronze standard by making the event ever more inclusive. We fully back the #MusicWithoutBarriers campaign."
Headliners are the Myrtle Park festival, which runs from August 29 to 31 are Pet Shop Boys, Example and Shed Seven.
