Headlining Saturday is the multi-talented Labrinth. Bingley Music Live has rarely had a headliner with so many strings to his bow. Singer, songwriter and producer Labrinth does not conform to one music genre. He straddles R&B, dance, soul, hip-hop, electronic, gospel, drum and bass, dubstep, grime and garage to name a few. Labrinth has collaborated with Tinie Tempah on 'Pass Out', who also featured on Labrinth's 'Earthquake', Professor Green and the number one smash hit with Emeli Sande, 'Beneath Your Beautiful'. More recently, the incredible, Labrinth has also taken time out to feature on Sigma's current smash hit 'Higher' further elevating him to one of the brightest stars of today's music scene.
The likes of Ella Eyre, Ash, Carl Barat & The Jackals and Funeral for a Friend will be performing alongside Labrinth on the Main Stage. Not to mention DJ sets from Radio One stars Scott Mills and Chris Stark. Deaf School will be headlining the Discovery Stage and will be joined by many other talented acts including Stephanie Fraser and Pixel Fix.
Super Furry Animals and Idlewild will be the first co-headliners at Bingley Music Live. SFA, who formed in 1993, have recorded nine albums. They are probably best known for singles, such as 'Rings Around the World', the Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder inspired ‘Juxtaposed with U’, 'Phantom Power', 'Radiator' and ‘If You Don’t Want Me To Destroy You’.
