A Brief History: With a such a stacked line-up you’d be forgiven for expecting the Bingley Weekender to a staple of the festival season. However, this is the debut of the Weekender in the already powerful Northern festival circuit. Established as a replacement to the West Yorkshire staple Bingley Music Live, this year’s line-up follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, which has played host to the likes of; Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, Manic Street Preachers and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, by providing a stacked line-up. This year also sees the return of previous Bingley headliners Doves and James.
How To Get There: The festival is located roughly a 20 minute walk-away from Bingley train station which allows for easy access from large cities such as Bradford and Leeds, with bus routes also available from these cities. Unlike most urban festivals, Bingley Weekender will be offering a camping option costing £20 per day. The festival will also be offering car parking, costing £15 for the weekend or £5 per day.
Prices: Tickets range from £46 for a day ticket or £101 for weekend.
