A newly reformed Super Furry Animals will headline this year’s Bingley Music Live!
Musical revolutionaries Super Furry Animals are the latest headliners promised by Bingley Music Live along with a host more acts as it bring four headliners over three days to the Myrtle Park, Bingley site for the first time in the festival’s history.
Super Furry Animals will join the legends of the British music scene, James, and the multi-talented Labrinth as the festival with the reputation of the ‘North’s Last Great Party of Summer’ on 4-6 September.
The festival, with surely the best value for money around (Just £49 for a three day weekend!), will announce another ‘co-headline’ act shortly.
Super Furry Animals, who formed in 1993, have recorded nine albums. They are probably best known for singles, such as ‘Rings Around the World’, the Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder inspired ‘Juxtaposed with U’, ‘Phantom Power’, ‘Radiator’ and ‘If You Don’t Want Me To Destroy You’.
Music magazine NME once declared, “There’s a case to be argued that SFA are the most important band of the last 15 years”. Leading American music magazine Billboard also heaped praise declaring the band as, “One of the most imaginative bands of our time”.
SFA’s 15-year-old classic album ‘Mwng’ has just been reissued and a book on the band’s rise to fame, has recently been published.
Libertines front man and lead guitarist, Carl Barat and his band The Jackals also joins the bill that already includes Embrace, Ella Eyre, Ash, Cast, Scott Matthews, Peter Hook and the Light who will be playing the hits of his former bands New Order and Joy Division.
2-tone Ska band The Beat join this year’s lineup wielding their hits including “Can’t Get Used To Losing You” and “Mirror In The Bathroom”.
True to form, the festival will host some of the very best of both new and undiscovered talent on its Discovery Stage with a range of acts that already promises a collection Radio One favourites and exciting new acts. Rae Morris and Scott Matthews. Fickle Friends, Pixel Fix, Meadow Lark, Adam French, The Black Delta Movement, Weirds.
Deaf School won’t be a name known to everyone up at the Discovery Stage but that won’t stop BML urging music fans to check them out. The band has been together for decades and there may never have been acts like Blur without the influence of Deaf School. The band also includes the wife of Madness star Suggs and Clive Langer – the man behind the production desk of all the hits of Madness and Dexy’s Midnight Runners as well as clocking up international hits with artists like Elvis Costello, David Bowie and Mick Jagger to name just a few.
As ever, the Main Stage also gives opportunity to ‘tomorrow’s headliners today’ alongside internationally successful artists, as it introduces future giant acts to the Bingley crowd such as Nothing But Thieves, Kiko Bun and Vant.
Bingley Music Live Artist Booker, Lee O’Hanlon, said,
“I challenge anyone to find a better three day festival with such strength in depth for £49 anywhere in the country.
“We are so excited by the bill this year. This is a festival for real music fans with our Discovery Stage also delivering some of the very best new acts in the country. We can’t wait to announce a fourth headliner soon to complete this year’s exciting lineup”.
Tickets are just £49 for adult weekend tickets and £34 for child weekend tickets plus booking fee with an opportunity to still pay in installments.
