James, Doves and Ocean Colour Scene headline the first Bingley Weekender, a three day festival at Bradford & Bingley Rugby Club from 30th August – 1st September 2019.


Friday’s headliners Ocean Colour Scene achieved both critical and public success in the 90s. The band released 5 top ten albums. One of which, Marchin’ Already reached number one in 1997. The band’s biggest hits include The Riverboat Song and The Day We Caught The Train. They will be joined by Idles, James Walsh (of Starsailor fame), Louis Berry and Fling + many more.

Saturday provides a compelling mix of established and emerging indie acts. After taking a long hiatus from 2010 till late 2018, Doves are well and truly back. The band are responsible for brilliant tracks including Black & White Town and There Goes The Fear Again. They will be joined by Tom Grennan, Circa Waves, Anteros and The Blinders + many more.

Sunday 1st September at Bingley Weekender has a billing of epic proportions. Headliners James are regarded as one of the prolific bands that arose from the Madchester scene. Their discography includes tracks such as Sit Down and Laid. Sunday also includes performances from iconic British acts like Echo & the Bunnymen, Miles Kane and Billy Bragg + many more.

Although music is the primary focus of the fantastic new festival, there is so much more to Bingley Weekender. The boutique, family friendly festival will include street art, comedy, great food and opportunities to camp/glamp depending on your preferences.
