Bingley Music Live – The Second Wave Of Bands Rolls In


The Fratellis, Lucy Spraggan, Charlie Brown, The Lake Poets, The Temperance Movement and Lovable Rogues are the latest acts to join the line-up for this year’s Bingley Music Live.  


Covering a multitude of musical genres these latest additions are a fantastic demonstration of Bingley Music Live’s on-going commitment to showcasing the widest variety of established and grass roots talent. They will appear at Myrtle Park between August 30th-September 1st alongside Primal Scream, The Cribs and The Wonder Stuff. 

Myrtle Park is looking forward to welcoming back Jon Fratelli, this time with his band, the recently reformed The Fratellis. After a three year hiatus the Brit Award winning, Glaswegian indie-rock trio make a triumphant return to the UK festival scene to promote their third album, scheduled for release in September.  The NME revelled in their “bouncing glamorama” and you can expect the entire BML audience to be doing its fair share of pogoing to their classic hit Chelsea Dagger

Solo musician Lucy Spraggan, who comes from Sheffield, describes her genre as ‘A-Flop’: a winning mix of acoustic, folk and hip hop. Already picked out by Radio One’s Tom Deacon for her “star quality” Lucy has had an incredibly busy couple of years. Not only was she a runner up in the Live and Unsigned competition at the age of 20, she also briefly appeared on X-Factor before sadly withdrawing due to ill health.  Now back to full strength, 2013 could be Lucy’s breakthrough year into the mainstream. 

London-based singer-song-writer Charlie Brown is destined to make a mark on the RnB scene this year. With a string of successful collaborations under his belt including working alongside Tinchy Stryder, Alphabeat, Wiley, as well as, previous Bingley Music Live performers Professor Green and Dionne Bromfield. Charlie Brown’s soulful melodies and pop-sensibilities have quickly cemented his reputation. Signed to Universal’s All Around The World record label, his singles Dependency and On My Way come ahead of the launch of a hotly anticipated album. 

Described by the only permanent band member Martin Longstaff as “a collaborative scene in Sunderland” The Lake Poets music is an enthralling blend of acoustic indie-folk.  The fluid and ever evolving line up brings together a plethora of instruments and sounds. With a name that pays homage to a group of 19th Century English romantic writers, The Lake Poets’ music is equally emotive. Our intimate, tree lined venue provides the perfect arena to witness Martin and co.’s haunting performance. 

The Temperance Movement in their own words “carry a torch for a fading generation of live bands” which sounds like the perfect reason to catch them doing what they do best at this year’s Bingley Music Live. But what to expect? Recent EP Pride offers a sublime blues drenched fusion of explosive, passionate and soulful music – all played very LOUD. With sell out shows from London to Glasgow The Temperance Movement are causing quite a stir, so come and see for yourself what the commotion is all about. 

As a family-friendly event, we are thrilled to bring an element of pure pop to proceedings. Coming to Bingley Music Live this year, Loveable Rogues are not your standard boy band. Signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco label, the three London lads rose to fame by reaching the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2012. So far, so familiar? Yet Eddie, Sonny and Te write and perform their own songs and are building an impressive fan base. Having recently supported Olly Murs, the boys’ popularity is sure to grow during 2013.
