The bands will play on the new third stage hosted in association with The Musician’s Centre; providing a dedicated forum for home grown acts across the district. Covering a broad spectrum of musical genres these new acts prove that the local scene is flourishing in diversity. Each of the chosen acts complied with the strict entry conditions, having at least 1 band member with a BD postcode, an existing online presence, plus previous live gig experience.

Marie Harris of The Musician’s Centre commented: "We’re really overwhelmed with the response from local bands wanting to play Bingley Music Live and really impressed by the quality that Bradford has to offer, our team had a really tough job boiling down over 150 applicants to just 20 but we feel the bands playing represent a huge variety and a very high quality of what the local area has to offer."
The Musician’s Centre Stage has been given a ‘Woodstock Festival’ theme to create a laidback and relaxed, family-friendly place for bands and supporters to hang out.  Expect to see hippies handing out flowers inviting you to the stage, live artwork, a photo booth to snapshot your happy-hippy moments and the guys from the Rag and Bone Collective will be helping contribute to the communal art display.

Over the past six years Bingley Music Live has firmly established itself on the festival circuit; impressing audiences and performers alike with its intimate, friendly atmosphere and professional organisation. The chance to really get up close and personal to your favourite bands is one of the event’s stand-out features, meaning that festival goers can get to the heart of the action.

The other bands confirmed for the Main and Raise the Roof stages this year are: Maverick Sabre, Delilah, Kids in Glass Houses, Katzenjammer, The Idiot B*stard Band, StooShe, Yes Sir Boss, Miles & Erica, Skinny Lister, The Chevin, Citizens! Sadie and the Hotheads, Ellen and the Escapades, King Charles and The Lancashire Hot Pots.
