Clement Marfo and the Frontline also added to the festival
This year’s Bingley Music Live line up is almost complete, special guests appearing on Sunday night are White Lies; they’re joined by hot newcomers Clement Marfo and the Frontline.
Since springing onto the music scene in 2008 to universal acclaim and numerous 'one-to-watch' accolades White Lies have gone on to surpass all expectations. Their debut album To Lose My Life entered the UK chart at number 1 and they've built an impressive reputation around the globe for their euphoric, uplifting, indie anthems. Followed by 2010's mature, full-bodied tech-rock sequel Rituals the three-piece from West London have developed into a tightly knit, focused and imaginative force. With an 18 month world tour and numerous international festival appearances under their belts you can expect a knock out live performance.
Sunday also welcomes Clement Marfo and the Frontline to the Main Stage. Nominated for MTV's 'Brand New for 2012' award; the exuberant, lyrical skills of South London rapper Clement are set to take the UK by storm. The release of the appropriate (and timely) titled single 'Champion' is a motivational rallying call that exudes an energetic and irrepressible enthusiasm. With its hyper-catchy hook, it’s a track that’s destined to feature throughout the Olympic highlights this summer. The seven members that make up The Frontline bring a vibrant fusion of musical genres to the mix; creating a unified sound of the city street and presenting a unique urban vibe with an inspirational perspective. Be prepared for a full scale attack from this upbeat army - they're sure to be victorious.
Organised by Bradford Council, Bingley Music Live has consistently impressed audiences and performers alike with its intimate, friendly atmosphere and professional organisation. The chance to really get up close and personal to your favourite bands is one of the event’s stand-out features and means that festival goers can eagerly anticipate getting to the heart of the action.
These latest two bands virtually complete our line up with just two Battle of the Bands competition winners to be announced later in the month.
