Bingley Music Live organisers, Bradford Council, have announced that Weekend Tickets for the 2018 festival have now completely sold out.
All of the first and second phase Weekend Tickets for this year’s Bingley Music Live have been snapped up. The great news is that day tickets for the festival are still available and are selling fast.
This fantastic news comes well over a month in advance of the three-day event which takes place in Myrtle Park, Bingley from 31 August to 2 September.
Child Tickets for the full weekend sold out earlier this year in April. Demand has been so high that day tickets and the day-spilt schedules were released towards the end of June which is significantly earlier than usual.
The popularity of the festival is partly down to its huge success last year, but it is also thanks to the high calibre and diversity of acts set to perform at the upcoming event.
The headliners at Bingley Music Live this year are three big names in British music: Shed Seven, Jake Bugg and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Friday night is when Shed Seven are topping the bill. Their Britpop credentials make them a stellar headliner act not to be missed.
They are joined by a mixture of well established and emerging acts. The list includes Ian Broudie’s Lightning Seeds who are surefire hit-makers and stalwarts of the festival circuit.
Additionally Gomez, The Sherlocks and Pale Waves are a few others performing on the opening day this year.
Saturday is headlined by Jake Bugg who is no stranger to writing storming tunes inspired by the greats, which will go down a treat at Bingley. Playing alongside Bugg is a wonderfully varied selection of artists including The Cribs, Melanie C, Rat Boy, PiL and Spector to name just a few.
Former Oasis member Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds fittingly take the headline spot on the Sunday evening. Gallagher a musical icon will round off a jam packed weekend of dynamic live music.
On Sunday the main stage will also see performances from the likes of Peace, local Bingley band Marmozets, Pulled Apart By Horses and Black Honey before Gallagher plays.
There will also be plenty of opportunity for festival goers to find new bands on The Discovery Stage across the weekend. Among the songwriters and bands playing are The Night Cafe, Queen Zee, Bad Sounds, Touts, Wild Front, Nerina Pallot, Sea Girls, Rosborough and Bryde.
Even more new local bands will be at the festival thanks to Bingley Music Live’s annual Emerging Talent competition, giving the winners the chance to play the festival. Ego Stages open the main stage on Saturday while Glue will do the same for the Discovery stage. Critical Reaction kick off main stage proceedings on Sunday while Kilsney Green open the Discovery stage.
Though all of the weekend tickets may be gone, music fans still wanting a slice of the action are able purchase day tickets from www.bingleymusiclive.com.
However, people wanting to buy the tickets are urged to act quickly as there is a chance that these too will sell out. 2018 has already become the fastest selling year in the twelve year history of Bingley Music Live, breaking the record set by the festival last year.
Adult day tickets to Bingley Music Live this year cost £45 for the Friday and £50 for Saturday and Sunday and Child day tickets cost £30 per day.
Coun Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said: “The line-up for this year’s festival is so good it’s no wonder that all the weekend tickets have been snapped up in record time. It’s looking likely that this year’s festival will be a sell out so I would urge people who are wanting a ticket to hurry up before it’s too late.”
