The line up for Bingley Music Live 2012 has grown today to include Nero, Kids in Glass Houses, Katzenjammer, Skinny Lister, and King Charles.
Heading to Myrtle Park between August 31st and 2nd September these latest additions join: DJ Fresh, The Pigeon Detectives, Hard-Fi, The Charlatans, Maverick Sabre, Delilah, The Idiot B*stard Band, StooShe, Yes Sir Boss, Miles & Erica and The Lancashire Hot Pots.
Nero bring their expansive electronic soundscapes to proceedings on the Main Stage. With three successive singles selected as the ‘Hottest Record in the World’ by Radio 1's Zane Lowe, the London dubstep pioneers are enjoying a meteoric rise. Nero will bring you nothing less than a blindingly awesome performance.
Also on the Main Stage, energetic Welsh rock band, Kids in Glass Houses bring their blazing guitars to Bingley. Having charted three top 30 albums in four years, this relentless five-piece serve up a heady mix of monster riffs, hook-laden anthems and sing-along choruses; all delivered at maximum volume.
Delivering sets on both the Main and the Raise the Roof stages are the all-female Norwegian four-piece, Katzenjammer. Famed for mixing musical genres and switching instruments at a frenzied pace, their sets includes as many as 25 different instruments.
Bolstering the folkie vibe on the Raise the Roof stage are Skinny Lister. This eclectic, earthy sounding five-piece group has truly blossomed into something exceptional after a period of extensive touring. Their live performances deliver a galvanized, singular sound. Fronted by Yorkshire-born songwriter Dan Heptinstall and saucy female vocalist Lorna Thomas, gigs are a riot of sound and fun. So prepare to be infected by their jovial, foot stomping, high kicking free for all.
Vibrant psyche-inflected folk-popster King Charles has been proclaimed ‘too cool for the charts’ by the Guardian. Having toured with Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Mumford and Sons, the classically trained cellist, chorister and winner of an International Songwriting Competition, is set to release his debut album Loveblood on 7th May.
This year as well as the Main Stage and improvements to the Raise the Roof stage, Bingley Live are introducing of a new, third stage. Organised in association with the Musicians Centre it will provide a dedicated platform for local, unsigned talent.
