Bingley Music Live announces Day Splits (press release)

The north's last big party of the summer, Bingley Music Live, has revealed the day split of  its acts.

The three-day weekend tickets - priced at just £49 plus booking fee - have been selling well for the Bradford Council-run festival, so organisers are this year releasing day tickets earlier than ever before.

Bradford Council, who run the event, have announced the day split of acts set to perform alongside headliners, the internationally acclaimed Pet Shop Boys, chart-topping hip-hop artist Example and Yorkshire band Shed Seven.

This year, Bingley Music Live boasts an eclectic line up, covering just about every genre, including the best of new talent and promises the most complete line-up in its history.

Headlining the main stage on Friday, 29 August are 90s Britpop stalwarts Shed Seven with special guest Gaz Coombes (Supergrass). Other acts include rising star MNEK, The Selector, Joel Compass and Coasts.

The Second Stage presents Eliza and Bear, Champs, We are Catchers, Prides and Woman's Hour.

The party hots up on Saturday 30 August with one of the UK's biggest dance anthem hit-makers Example headlining the main stage. Other acts include Gorgon City, The Strypes, Jess Glynne, Bi Polar Sunshine, Catfish and the Bottlemen, John Lennon McCullagh, Dexters and Avec Sans. Power ballad DJs Ultimate Power will be hitting the decks between acts.

Saturday's Second Stage will see performances from critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Nuck Mulvey. Joining him will be Natasha North, Young Kato, Renegade Brass Band, Emma Garrett, Bird to Beast, Bridie Jackson and the Arbour, Warme and The Mispers.

Six times Grammy Award nominees The Pet Shop Boys, who have sold more than 50 albums worldwide, will take the stage by storm on the final night on Sunday 31 August. Other main stage acts sharing the bill with them are: Naughty Boy, Simon & Oscar (from Ocean Colour Scene)- playing acoustic versions of their hits, Chloe Howl, Etta Bond, D/C, Night Engine and Charlie Cunningham. 

The final acts on the Second Stage are: The South, Kyla La Grange, The Wytches, Neon Waltz, Ramona Flowers, Georgia Harrup, Port Isla, Carla and The Sherlocks.

Winners of the Emerging Talent competition, which pitches local upcoming acts against one another to win a place on the BML bill, will be announced after the final on 16 May.

Phil Barker, Bradford Council's Assistant Director for Sport & Leisure, said: "We decided that tickets were selling so well that we can now tell people when acts are playing, in case they can only commit to one day. They can then pick which day best suits their musical tastes and book a ticket."
