BINGLEY Weekender has been postponed until 2021 but organisers have announced a "legendary" name will now join the roster.

The three-day festival was due to take place between Friday, September 4 and Sunday, September 4, but has been forced to reschedule to next year due to the coronavirus crisis.

Organisers, SSD Concerts, revealed it had sold more than 1,000 tickets within three hours of announcing Bingley Weekender would return for 2020, last September.

But the current climate the festival has now been scheduled for over the first full weekend in August next year.

This will be from Friday, August 6 to Sunday, August 8.

Bingley Weekender was hotting up to blow its inaugural year of 2019 out of the water with a bumper line-up, until the pandemic hit.

SSD Concerts announced the first headliners back in late November last year.

The list included Primal Scream, The Libertines, and Tom Walker.

The organisers said they have worked "tirelessly" since the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK to maintain the festival's "stellar" line-up.

Not only has SSD Concerts managed to keep the vast majority of the acts and bands in place for next year, it has also revealed some world-renowned local heroes have agreed to join the fun.

Embrace, join co-headliners Primal Scream to round off a packed opening night.

The indie band hail from Bradford and Kirklees, with keyboard and piano player, Micky Dale, having worked at the T&A before Embrace tasted success.

Drummer, Mike Heaton, comes from Liversedge.

SSD Concerts has also promised that an iconic Sunday headliner is still to be announced, after Tom Walker dropped off the lineup for next year.

Festival organiser Steve Davis, said: “The safety of our guests, our staff and of the artists performing is always our number one priority, and that's why we've had to make the difficult decision to move Bingley Weekender to next year.

"We were blown away by the public response to the first weekender last year and we were determined to come back with an even bigger and bolder line-up for the following event."

Bingley Weekender was born out of the disappearance of the popular Bingley Music Live (BML).

It was cancelled in April of 2019, causing outcry with adoring fans.

But, SSD Concerts, which had helped Bradford Council with BML in 2017 and 2018, stepped in to fill the void.

The first ever Bingley Weekender, held at Bingley Rugby Club, was a roaring success and Mr Davis hopes the promise of a jam-packed line-up will have people itching for 2021.

He said: "Although this won't sadly happen as planned this summer, we can't wait to see everyone in much happier circumstances in 2021.

"The show must go on and I hope everyone likes the new line-up."
