Scottish alternative rock band Idlewild are the final big name act to be added to the Bingley Music Live bill.
Idlewild, who formed in Edinburgh in 1995, released their eighth studio album 'Everything Ever Written' in February. It has been described as the band's 'most eclectic output to date' with strands of Scottish folk, Americana and 'Hebridean psychedelia'. Over the years Idlewild have been compared to Gang of Four, Pavement, Blur and Fugazi.
They remerged in October 2014 after a five year haitus with a new line up and an acoustic tour of the Scottish Highlands and islands.
