The stellar line-up for Bingley Music Live 2017 has now been completed and is looking like the strongest in the festival’s history.
New additions to the line-up come in the form of heavy hitting artists such as Sundara Karma, Badly Drawn Boy and Twin Atlantic who will be taking to the main stage across the weekend.
Music fans will also have the chance to catch some of the UK’s hottest new acts on this year’s Discovery stage, headlined by over-night sensation Tom Grennan, London gals The Big Moon and hotly tipped locals The Orielles.
They are joining an already full-to-bursting weekend programme for the Bradford Council-run event on 1-3 September at Myrtle Park which so far boasts Manic Street Preachers, The Kaiser Chiefs, The Wombats, Maximo Park, Pete Doherty, Soul II Soul, Feeder, Milburn and Cabbage.
Up and coming indie rockers Sundara Karma hail from Reading and have been compared to Arcade Fire and U2. Their debut album, the sagely titled ‘Youth is only even fun in Retrospect’ was released in January.
Damon Gough a.k.a Badly Drawn Boy celebrated the 15th Anniversary of his Mercury Prize winning album The Hour of the Bewilderbeast last year. The critically acclaimed debut album catapulted the artist into the spotlight with tracks like ‘The Shining’ and ‘Everybody’s Stalking’, he then went on to soundtrack the hugely successful Hugh Grant film ‘About A Boy’. Q Magazine have named Badly Drawn Boy as one of their ‘50 Bands to See Before You Die’.
Glasgow’s Twin Atlantic formed in 2000 and came to prominence in 2007 with their debut EP ‘A Guidance from Colour’, as well as support slots with the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and Blink-182. Their most successful singles so far have been ‘Heart and Soul’ and ‘Brothers and Sisters’, both from their 2015 album ‘Great Divide’. They were also named ‘Best UK Band’ at the 2016 SSE Scottish Music Awards. Their fourth studio album ‘GLA’ was released in September 2016.
