Growing in stature year on year, Bingley Music Live has been operating in its current format since 2007. In 2012 the festival ran the tagline ‘Big Heart, Big Sounds’ – this succinct message perfectly summarises everything that is great about Bingley Music Live.
Feedback from performers and festival-goers alike continues to be incredibly positive and the media seem unable to hold back the love, with Virtual Festivals awarding BML a rare 10/10 score. The high standard of production, friendliness, excellent organisation and the beautiful surrounding of Myrtle Park all contribute to the audience’s enjoyment.
Attracting seasoned festival goers and first timers alike, in just six years Bingley Music Live has developed an incredibly loyal and supportive following, and grown into a nationally heralded festival that is widely applauded for its professionalism and integrity.
Since 2007 there has also been strong growth in the festival’s following. Thanks to your support we’ve experienced near sell out crowds for the past four years including actual sell out in 2011. Being shortlisted to the top 10 of the UK Festival Awards Best Medium Sized Festival last year was also a massive success for Bingley Music Live and a reflection of the many improvements that were made. We’ve also been delighted by the notable performances from outstandingly talented artists such as Nero, Razorlight, DJ Fresh, Maverick Sabre, White Lies, The Pigeon Detectives, Stooshe, Martha Reeves, Hard-Fi, Space, Katzenjammer, King Charles, Chase and Status, Maximo Park, Feeder, Eliza Doolittle, Mystery Jets, Stereo MC’s, James, The Enemy, Public Image Ltd, Seasick Steve, Editors, Calvin Harris, Doves, The Zutons as well as breaking acts such as Jake Bugg, Example, Professor Green, V.V. Brown, Daley, Dot Rotten, Driving Lolita and Kassidy. It’s this exciting mix of the cutting edge, the mainstream and the alternative that makes BML such an exciting event. There’s always something new to discover as well as a line up of guaranteed crowd-pleasers. We look forward to seeing you next summer for the next chapter of the adventure.
