THE Wombats have been announced as the final headline act for this year’s Bingley Music Live.


The Indie band from Liverpool will close the event on Sunday, September 3, playing their hits including Let’s Dance to Joy Division and Kill the Director. They released their debut album, A Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation, in 2007.


They will join fellow headliners the Manic Street Preachers and Kaiser Chiefs at the event, to be held at Myrtle Park between September 1 and 3.


Meanwhile, a number of the event’s other acts have been revealed. Friday’s line-up will see alternative rock group Maximo Park and Manchester-based alternative/indie band Cabbage warm the crowd up for headliners the Manic Street Preachers.


Saturday’s stage will be filled by former Babyshambles and Libertines frontman Pete Doherty and Sheffield-based indie rock quartet Milburn performing before The Kaiser Chiefs are in action.


The festival will conclude on Sunday, September 3, with Welsh rockers Feeder, whose hits include Buck Rogers, will be appearing alongside Soul II Soul, who enjoyed Grammy Award-winning success with their single Back to Life.


Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s executive member for environment, sport & culture, said: “There is such a varied line up here that I am sure there is something to fit all music tastes.


“Ticket sales are already at a record high for this time of year and there is a real buzz around this year’s festival. With lots more acts still to be announced this year’s festival is looking better than ever.”


This year camping will be available at Bradford & Bingley Sports Club, Wagon Lane, Bingley, for music fans.


Last year’s event included 1990s groups Travis, All Saints, 80s rockers Echo and the Bunnymen and rapper Tinie Tempah.


It proved a rain-soaked Bingley Music Live as the bad weather held off until the Saturday of the event when a day-long deluge turned Myrtle Park into a mini mudbath beneath 90,000 boots and wellies.


The first wave of tickets for the festival are on sale now. Go to for more information.
