It's lights fantastic at Bingley Music Live
Futuristic lights blasted over raving revellers as “kings of dubstep” Nero brought Bingley Music Live to a close in spectacular style last night.
The chart-topping duo, who have enjoyed a meteoric rise to the forefront of the UK dance scene, asked organisers if they could perform at dusk so crowds could party the night away while being wowed by a dazzling light show.
Thousands of wellie-clad fans could be seen waving their arms and jumping up and down as the headliners, standing behind a massive set of decks, thrilled with their unique blend of dubstep, rave and trance.
The electro-heavy set was a change of pace for festival-goers at the Bradford Council organised event, who had earlier been treated to performances from dark-edged trio White Lies, the eclectic Maverick Sabre and indie group Hard Fi.
The summer sun shone over Myrtle Park for the closing chapter of the three-day festival, which organisers estimate attracted more than 32,000 people to its Main Stage, Raise the Roof Stage and Musicians Centre Stage – a platform for up-and-coming acts from the Bradford area.
Phil Baker, Bradford Council’s assistant director for sport and leisure, said the crowds had enjoyed some “great performances”.
“A particular crowd favourite was the Pigeon Detectives on Saturday night, and Jake Bugg and King Charles were fantastic on the Raise the Roof stage,” he added. “It’s been a great weekend.”
Indie rockers Razorlight headlined Saturday night, when frontman Johnny Borrell brought the crowd to life with the band’s hits including Who Needs Love and America.
DJ Fresh, Dellilah, L Marshall and The Idiot B*stard Band – an all-star line-up of Bradford-born Ade Edmondson, Phill Jupitus, Neil Innes and Rowland Rivron – all performed yesterday.
