BINGLEY Weekender is a music festival taking place from August 30 to September 1 at the Bradford & Bingley Rugby Club.

Organisers set out to bring globally-acclaimed artists to the town while advocating brilliant local bands and artists.

Doncaster band The Blinders combine heavy-handed indie rock and lyrics about dystopian worlds comparable to ‘1984’ and ‘A Clockwork Orange’.

Leeds band Marsicans are currently one of the UK’s fastest rising indie acts following support slots with JAWS, Fickle Friends and Clean Cut Kid.

Dead Naked Hippies are thrashing, art-rock outsiders with a ferocious sound comparable to Black Honey, Smashing Pumpkins and The Kills.

The Elephant Trees’ members hail from Leeds but are current BIMM Manchester students, and create a kaleidoscope of punk, alt-rock and disco.
