Following on from the massive success of the Bingley Music Live festival this year, the event will be back for 2018.

The Bradford Council-run festival will once again return to the beautiful setting of Bingley’s Myrtle Park.

A record number of revellers flocked to the festival at the beginning of September for a weekend of fantastic fun, music and entertainment.

The festival was at full capacity of 15,000 each day creating a great atmosphere and giving a real boost to the Bingley economy.

The event which has been going in its current format for the past 11 years is organised by Bradford Council and is set to take place on the weekend of Friday 31 August, Saturday 1 and Sunday September 2018.

Organisers are working hard behind the scenes to bring a stellar line-up for next year.

This year fans were treated to an outstanding set by the Manic Street Preachers on Friday. The Kaiser Chiefs rocked the main stage on Saturday and the festival was brought to a close by The Wombats who played an amazing greatest hits set, despite having some of their instruments stuck at Heathrow airport. Fellow rockers Feeder came to the rescue lending them their equipment. A spectacular fireworks display followed to round off what was an amazing weekend.

The smaller Discovery Stage showcased the best of the latest up and coming bands and this stage is set to return for 2018.

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Sport and Culture, said: “Bingley Music Live was truly amazing this year in terms of ticket sales and the calibre of performers. Our officers are now working hard to put together another stunning festival for 2018.”
